NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s (GSFC) Earth Sciences Division, in collaboration with the Goddard Earth Sciences and Technology (GEST) Center of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, is offering a limited number of graduate student research opportunities through its Graduate Student Summer Program (GSSP). This prestigious program is in its eighth year and is designed to stimulate interest in interdisciplinary Earth sciences studies by enabling selected students to carry out an intensive research project at GSFC’s Earth Sciences Division, which can be applied to the student’s graduate thesis. GSSP 2008 will take place from June 2 to August 8, 2008.
Positions are available to students interested in any Earth sciences field conducive to the research of NASA GSFC’S Earth Sciences Division. Each student will be teamed with a NASA Goddard scientist mentor with parallel scientific interests. NASA mentors can be drawn from any of the participating Earth Sciences divisions which include: The Laboratory for Atmospheres, The Laboratory for Hydrospheric and Biospheric Sciences, The Global Modeling & Assimilation Office, The Global Change Data Center and The Software Integration & Visualization Office.
