10 openings available.
The “Aquatic Sciences, Engineering, and Technology (ASET) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)” program at Clarkson University (CU) is a 10-week immersive research experience serving ten (10) undergraduates per year. Our program renewal proposal was just awarded funding by NSF, thus we are announcing our summer 2023 program and opening our application portal.ASET-REU interns will have opportunities to conduct research in a range of disciplines organized in broad categories of 1) Aquatic Natural Sciences, 2) Aquatic Sustainability Sciences, and 3) Aquatic Resource Engineering. ASET will focus on the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River watershed environmental research. The program includes a programmatic emphasis on Indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River with the community of Akwesasne (St. Regis Mohawk Tribe).
Our program outcomes are to 1) develop a Scholar’s research experience; 2) develop a diverse, supportive, and inclusive learning community; 3) strengthen Scholars’ skills to create and evaluate communication products; 4) foster Scholars’ evaluation of the ethical and legal aspects in research; 5) validate the Scholars' academic path and facilitate degree completion in a STEM-related field; and 6) encourage Scholars to choose a career in STEM in aquatics. This award is supported by the Directorate of Biological Sciences and the Division of Ocean Sciences.
Program Dates: Monday 22 May through Friday 28 July 2023 (Arrive Monday 5/22; Leave Friday 7/28)
Research Topics: Aquatic Natural Sciences, Aquatic Sustainability Sciences, and Aquatic Resource Engineering, Environmental Monitoring, Smart Devices and Sensors for Water Management, Emerging Contaminants Remediation and Wastewater Treatment
Location: Clarkson University, Potsdam, New York
Financial Package: Participants will receive 1) a $6000 stipend, 2) 1 round trip airfare to and from airport (we book and pay), 3) transportation to and from airport to Potsdam, and 4) and on-campus housing (2-4 bedrooms per apartment; limited single bedrooms) with a common apartment kitchenette for the 10-week period.

be enrolled in college for the fall 2023 (i.e. students who will graduate by June 2023 are not eligible),
have successfully completed an introductory major course/course sequence (e.g., biology, chemistry, ecology, engineering, environmental sciences/studies/policy/sustainability, evolution, physics, etc.),
be willing to live in on-campus housing apartments, and
be able to participate in the program full-time (e.g., 40 hrs. / week, including nights, weekends)
