Apply Now for a Paid Summer Internship with Real Research Experience
The May 1 deadline is fast approaching for students to apply for the San Joaquin Valley Food and Agriculture Cyberinformatics Tools and Science (FACTS) bridge program, a paid summer research program funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Hosted by the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute at UC Merced, FACTS is designed to give first-year and transfer students an opportunity for research experience in ag-food-tech.
The paid summer internship provides on-campus housing, stipends, travel to field sites and research experience with a lab group.
Interns could spend the summer building novel robots to improve irrigation efficiency, monitoring greenhouse gas releases, addressing climate change through improving soil quality, learning social science methods to support improved public and environmental health or choose from other exciting opportunities.
