Collaboratory Summer Internship

Now seeking interns, research advisors, and community partners!!

The Pittsburgh Collaboratory for Water Research, Education, and Outreach at the University of Pittsburgh hosts paid internships throughout the year. Interns work with a partner organization (e.g., NGO, government agency, community group, or other water practitioners) and an academic advisor to conduct independent research related to water. A list of potential partner organizations and potential academic advisors can be found on our website, but partner organizations may include any local/regional organization that works with some aspect of water. The academic advisor can be any faculty member, postdoctoral researcher, or visiting scholar at the University of Pittsburgh. Advisors who are senior Ph.D. candidates will be considered. Applicants and their academic advisors may come from any major, department, or school at Pitt. You can find out more about past water research intern projects on our website.

Seeking Community Partners!

Throughout the year, interns conduct independent research projects in partnership with a community organization and faculty advisor. If you have a project idea, data hanging around, or analyses that you think would make a good project, please let us know! Water interns are highly motivated undergraduates who are selected through a competitive application process to conduct research benefiting a community partner. Community partners help identify research needs, assist with mentoring interns, and help make sure that products and deliverables are as useful as possible.
