The Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) is pleased to offer unique opportunities for outstanding undergraduate students to participate in state-of-the-art research focused on the theme of Engineering Earthquake Resilient Communities.
Recent earthquakes in the US and around the world have repeatedly shown that earthquake resilience is essential to building and sustaining urban communities. Earthquake resilience will play an increasingly important role in the professions associated with earthquake hazard mitigation, and the ten-week 2013 PEER Summer Internship Program will allow you to experience how many different engineering and social science disciplines interact to research the broad goal of earthquake resilient communities.
During the summer of 2013, interns will be hosted at UC Berkeley, UC Davis and University of Washington to conduct research projects in the fields of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, risk analysis, public policy, and city planning.
Each participant will receive a stipend of $7,000, intended to cover summer housing and travel expenses to the summer project location. PEER will provide additional compensation for travel to an Orientation Workshop at UC Berkeley and to the 2013 PEER Annual Meeting.
The first application deadline is Monday February 25, 2013 at 12:00 pm Pacific Time. Application review will begin on February 25 and continue on a rolling basis until all internships are awarded. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply before the February 25th deadline.
