Research Opportunities

Current CU undergrads should consider applying through the CU Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). UROP provides funding to undergrads pursuing research projects with CU faculty. Undergrads from elsewhere in the U.S. may consider applying to the Summer Multicultural Access to Research Training (SMART) for a summer internship in the Oceans and Climate Lab. See the SMART website for specific eligibility criteria. Independent Study (ATOC 4900) is also a means for CU students to conduct research for academic credit. In all cases, it is recommended to contact Prof. Friedrich well in advance if interested in undergrad research opportunities.

Prospective graduate students should apply through the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC). In addition to potential support through our research grants, prospective students should strongly consider applying for graduate fellowships at the federal level through the National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Postdoctoral candidates should also be aware of opportunities through the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Environmental Sciences (CIRES). In addition, postdocs should strongly consider applying for fellowships at the federal level through the National Science Foundation (AGS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Research Council, and National Center for Atmospheric Research.
