There are frequently openings for undergraduate research assistants, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars in the Oceans and Climate Lab. Please visit the About and Projects pages to learn more, and contact Prof. Karnauskas for specific details.

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. Karnauskas 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 the Oceans and Climate Lab, ATOC Department, and CIRES, 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 to potential support through the Oceans and Climate Lab and CIRES, postdocs should strongly consider applying for fellowships at the federal level through the National Science Foundation (OCE or AGS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Research Council, and National Center for Atmospheric Research.
