APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR UC Berkeley's exciting summer 7-day EXPLORATIONS in SCIENCE RESEARCH workshop (EiSR).

Students will receive support to cover travel expenses to attend the workshop as well as full room and board.

Quantitatively-inclined undergraduates are strongly encouraged to apply!

EiSR will be held June 15-June 23 at UC Berkeley. Apply by April 2, 2013.

For application information: http://scienceconnections.berkeley.edu/

2013 is the International Year for the Mathematics of the Earth. This National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop will focus on the (unsolved) puzzle of the contemporary carbon cycle.

Our short program is designed to encourage and help prepare students to attend graduate school in the sciences. It is aimed at undergraduates who are rising juniors or seniors.  Students will learn how earth & planetary scientists approach large, complex problems and how new research, instruments, data, and analytic tools that are producing results at the nexus of science, public understanding and policymaking. Students will gain a basic understanding of computing and visualization tools.

Applicants are expected to have some basic quantitative skills, including a freshman or sophomore level background in calculus and physics. Undergraduates majoring in earth & planetary science, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, statistics, engineering are all encouraged to apply. Women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. Only US citizens and permanent residents will be considered.

A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required.
