We have a great opportunity for Graduate Student Research Assistants in the NYC metropolitan area to work directly with NASA scientists and lead research teams in a NASA research project associated with the science related to climate change at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in NYC:

Graduate Student Research Assistant Stipend: $11,700

Application Period: Applications are considered upon receipt and the application period closes on September 21, 2020.

Multiple positions are available

Program Description:  During the fall and spring term of CCRI the research team will consist of NASA Principal Investigators who will lead Graduate Student Research Assistants and high school STEM educators to become immersed in a NASA science research area of study related to climate change. Fall and Spring sessions will have a time commitment of 10 hours per week for a period of 10 weeks. During the summer session, the primary research team will add an undergraduate intern and high school intern to the CCRI research team. The Graduate Student Research Assistant works collaboratively for 40 hours per week for a period of eight weeks to complete the research project and to create a scientific research paper and a PowerPoint presentation; a scientific poster will also be presented at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and other regional sciences symposiums. This opportunity will not conflict with the graduate student’s coursework or class schedule during the fall and spring semesters and is considered to be a part-time position that supports the graduate student’s major area of study.
