Summer Undergraduate Internship: Analyzing Global Climate Model Data to
Understand Climate-Air Quality Linkages

Carnegie Energy Innovation at the Carnegie Institution for Science’s
Department of Global Ecology on the Stanford University campus is looking
for an enthusiastic and dedicated undergraduate student as part of a new
project to look at the coupled climate and air quality impacts of
long-lived versus short-lived air pollutants. The researcher will be
expected to conduct 10 weeks of full-time research between the months of
May and September. Start and end date can be flexible to accommodate
quarter or semester schedules. Compensation includes a $5,000 stipend and a
$1040 allowance for travel to a domestic scientific conference.

The summer researcher will process, analyze, and visualize global climate
model output related to the role that short-lived air pollutants play in
the climate and air quality of several major economies. Internship
activities will include developing computer code to process climate model
data; visualizing and analyzing climate model results; preparing scientific
presentations; and carefully documenting all processing and
analysis. Details on the host project can be found at: https://nsf.gov/

The intern will be supervised by Dr. Geeta Persad (www.ggpersad.com) and
will be based at the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Ecology
(DGE) in Stanford, California. S/he will have the opportunity to
participate in group activities in the laboratory of Dr. Kenneth Caldeira
at DGE, as well as to attend seminars and events at DGE and on the Stanford
University campus. More information on the Caldeira Lab can be found at
