Opportunities

The Oregon Climate Change Research Institute and Oregon Climate Service welcome inquiries from undergraduate and graduate students within or outside Oregon about internships (for credit or paid) related to climate science and its applications to natural and human systems. We also welcome inquiries related to placement via programs such as the Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and the Arts (URSA) Engage Program at Oregon State University. Please contact Erica Fleishman (Director, OCCRI) or Larry O’Neill (Oregon State Climatologist) for more information.

Participants will receive a stipend, travel allowance, and free housing and local transportation. For more information and to apply: baeri.org/sarp.

Through 31 January 2021, the National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC) is soliciting statements of interest for their Science to Action Fellowship program, which supports graduate students in directly applying scientific research related to climate-change impacts on fish, wildlife, or ecosystems to decision-making about natural resources. Up to two fellows will be selected to receive a financial award of $10,000 each. Fellows collaborate with university and US Geological Survey mentors and expand their networks of professional colleagues and practical experience.This opportunity is open to graduate students at Climate Adaptation Science Center Consortium Institutions, including Oregon State University.
