NASA DEVELOP Program Opportunities

NASA is announcing a 10-week paid research opportunities with the NASA DEVELOP National Program, open to current students and recent college graduates as well as transitioning/early career professionals. 

NASA DEVELOP projects focus on helping local, national, and international communities address their environmental concerns while utilizing NASA's Earth observing fleet of satellites. NASA DEVELOP operates at eleven locations across the country at NASA Centers and other regional locations. This is a great opportunity for participants who are interested in practical applications of remote sensing and GIS, specifically in the field of Earth Science. Participants will work with NASA scientists, partner organizations, and science advisors to learn about the use of NASA Earth science data for use in water resources, disaster management, ecological conservation, and other applications to address environmental community concerns.

University of Wisconsin PREP Recruiting Applicants for 2023-2024

The University of Wisconsin has just launched an NIH-funded Postbaccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP). This is a one-year program (August 1 – July 31) designed for recent graduates (BS or BA) from under-represented populations. PREP Scholars will be placed in a research laboratory where they will work with a faculty and benchside mentor on a defined, independent research project. In addition, there will be 3-6 hours/week devoted to professional and leadership skill development, science communication skill development, and workshops related to responsible conduct of research.
The program covers one year stipend, tuition remission for one 3-credit graduate level class related to their research, and funding towards attendance at ABRCMS or SACNAS and another conference related to their sponsoring laboratory’s research.
The ultimate goal is to provide PREP Scholars the resources and skills required to apply to and matriculate into life science-related PhD graduate programs.
I would greatly appreciate if you would forward this information along to the students that you believe would benefit from this type of program. Our website link is below, and I am very happy to answer any questions you or your students might have. Of note, the deadline for applications for 2023-2024 is February 15.
