The David B. Baker Summer Scholar Program at the NCWQR

The National Center for Water Quality Research (NCWQR) at Heidelberg University is pleased to announce the David B. Baker Summer Scholar Program starting in May 2022. In recognition of our founding director, the Baker family has generously provided summer support for two student researchers to work with NCWQR staff to develop and conduct a research project as well as work in the laboratory to learn what we do. This opportunity will provide key insight into the world of water as well as the chance to learn how much fun scientific research can be! See details about the program below. Apply online and upload your resume by January 31, 2022. If you are interested, please complete the online application.

This program supports summer research for two undergraduate students. Support would cover a stipend (20 hours a week for 12 weeks, $10/hr), on-campus housing (or equivalent), research supplies and travel, and registration and stay for a regional conference. Students would be expected to develop an idea under the guidance of the NCWQR mentors prior to the summer internship, conduct the research during the summer period, and produce a research poster by the end of the summer to present at the Water Management Association of Ohio (WMAO) conference (or equivalent) in the fall. The remainder of their time during the summer will be working in the NCWQR (compensated at the same rate as the research time). The internship will be the 13-week period from May 16-August 12, 2022, which includes 1 week off for vacation (unpaid) and two holidays off (Memorial Day and Independence Day, also unpaid).
