Job Details

The Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) at Princeton University in collaboration with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) is recruiting undergraduate students for 8-9 week research internships in atmospheric, oceanic and earth system science. Awardees will work with host scientists at Princeton University and NOAA/GFDL, a world-leading center of earth system modeling, research and prediction. 

Interns will work on a focused scientific problem under the close supervision of their GFDL/Princeton host, and benefit from resources and activities at GFDL, including interaction with scientists and graduate students, access to high performance computing and library facilities, and opportunities to participate in a wide range of seminars and GFDL social events. We particularly encourage applications from students whose participation will add to the diversity of researchers in earth system science, including students from underrepresented groups, and first-generation college students.  

The 2024 summer internship program will be in-person at GFDL in Princeton, New Jersey unless the selected intern receives prior approval for remote work. Interns will receive a stipend of $5,600 - $6,300 for a 40-hour work week depending on the length of the internship. Starting dates and length of the internship are flexible depending on host availability. On campus room and board is typically made available to interns from late May to late July and is provided as part of the program.  Interns not living at home but using housing other than campus housing will receive a commensurate housing allowance. Interns will also receive reimbursement for travel to and from Princeton.       


The Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) is built upon the strengths of Princeton University in biogeochemistry, physical oceanography, paleoclimate, hydrology, ecosystem ecology, climate change mitigation technology, economics and policy; and those of GFDL in modeling the atmosphere, oceans, weather and climate. CIMES is an outgrowth of a highly successful fifty-year collaboration between Princeton University’s Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) Program and GFDL that has contributed to the development of oceanic and atmospheric models, performed research on climate and biogeochemical cycling and educated several generations of postdoctoral researchers and graduate students. CIMES and its predecessor CICS enhance and extend this long-term partnership by incorporating Princeton University faculty affiliated with the interdisciplinary Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI), thereby augmenting its expertise in the sciences, engineering and policy and facilitating new research collaborations.
