Student Support

National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) Research Internship Program*



The Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES), the successor to the Cooperative Institute for Climate Science, at Princeton University in collaboration with NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) hosts an 8-10 week research internship in atmospheric, oceanic and earth system science. Awardees will work with host scientists at the NOAA/GFDL, a world-leading center of earth system modeling, research and prediction. 

Students 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 lab 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.
