Student applications are now open for the Juneau Icefield Research Program 2023 field season. Application materials are due December 18th for priority consideration. Applications submitted after the due date will be considered on a rolling basis.
The Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP) offers a summer field course for students interested in undergraduate-level Polar sciences with a focus on glaciology, climate processes, glacial geomorphology, periglacial ecology, and interactions between these systems. JIRP is also appropriate for graduate students with limited experience in these topics. Students learn through academic and research interactions with rotating faculty from around the world. Workshops, field trips, and lectures focus on the primary topics listed above but also cover Alaskan geologic history, geomatics, and remote sensing, geophysics, scientific literacy, and science communication. In addition, the program capitalizes on the expertise of rotating faculty members to cover current questions in science.
