Dear Colleagues,

Please pass this fantastic internship opportunity along to your
undergraduate STEM majors:

*NASA Student Airborne Research Program*

The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated advanced
undergraduates who will be rising seniors in summer 2016 to apply for
participation in the 8th annual NASA Student Airborne Research Program
(SARP 2016). Participants will fly onboard the NASA DC-8 and assist in the
operation of instruments to sample and measure atmospheric solar radiation,
gases and aerosols. They will also use remote sensing data collected during
the program from the NASA ER-2 high-altitude research aircraft to image
land and water surfaces in multiple spectral bands. Along with airborne
data collection, students will participate in taking measurements at field
sites. Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study surface,
atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Each student will complete an
individual research project from the data collected.

Outstanding faculty and staff for this program will be drawn from several
universities and NASA centers, as well as from NASA flight operations and
engineering personnel.

The eight-week program begins June 12, 2016 and concludes August 5, 2016.

Instrument and flight preparations, and the research flights themselves,
will take place during the first two weeks of the program at NASA’s
Armstrong Flight Research Center, in Palmdale, CA. Post-flight data
analysis and interpretation will take place during the final six weeks of
the program at the University of California, Irvine.

SARP participants will receive a $5,000 stipend. They will also receive a
travel allowance as well as free housing and local transportation during
the 8-week program.

Applicants must be US citizens attending a US college or university
majoring in a STEM discipline.

*The application deadline is Tuesday February 2, 2016.*
