SWETTE UNDERGRADUATE SUSTAINABILITY INTERNS
Every year, the Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology solicits applications for Swette Undergraduate Sustainability Interns. Swette Interns perform research that focuses on using microorganisms to provide sustainable services to society. Study areas include renewable energy, improving water quality, and managing microbial communities. Each Swette Intern is integrated into an on-going research project in the Center and is compensated at a rate of $14/h. Swette Interns produce significant results that advance sustainability research and also get opportunities to present their results in written and oral formats. This is a tremendous opportunity to work with the distinguished faculty members in the Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology: Dr. Bruce Rittmann, Dr. César Torres, Dr. Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown, Dr. Hinsby Cadillo-Quiroz and Dr. Andrew Marcus.
The internships are open to undergraduate students who will be juniors or seniors at the beginning of the academic year. An intern must have a background in science or engineering that addresses providing sustainability services to society. Selection criteria emphasize academic qualifications and demonstrated commitment to sustainability.
