2001 Great Lakes Summer Student Fellowships

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA), Great Lakes
Research Laboratory (GLERL), and the Cooperative Institute for Limnology and
Research (CILER) administered by the University of Michigan, announce a
Great Lakes
Summer Student Fellowship Program.

We seek to fill thirteen (13), full time, three-month positions.  Preference
will be given to
currently enrolled or just-graduated undergraduates, although graduate
student applications will
be considered.  The starting date will be between May 1 and June 1, 2001.
Successful applicants
will receive a stipend of $5,000 for the three-month fellowship.  The fellow
will be expected to
provide a written project report at the completion of the work.  University
credit for the
experience may be arranged either through the University of Michigan or
through your home
institution.  Details for obtaining university credit will be provided with
acceptance letters.

Each student fellow will gain experience by working at a federal
environmental research
laboratory under the mentorship of an individual scientist or professional.
Most fellows will be
located at the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory in Ann Arbor,
Michigan as guest
students of the University of Michigan.  The Phytoplankton Ecologist,
Aquatic Biologist or
Ecologist, and possible Data Analyst positions will be based in Muskegon,
Michigan at the Lake
Michigan Field Station.

Summer fellowships are available in a broad range of fields, including
electronics engineering,
plankton ecology, aquatic and benthic biology, computer graphics, data
