|Postdoc SEED Fellowships
The Applied Physics Laboratory welcomes graduate and undergraduate student researchers, supporting them through individual grants and contracts of APL-UW scientists and engineers.
Graduate students are matched with skilled researchers for leadership roles in field and lab programs.
Undergraduates are integrated directly into their APL-UW advisor’s research projects, serve as co-authors of research articles in peer-reviewed journals, and present research results at national and international scientific conferences.
To work with an APL-UW scientist or engineer, you must:
Diverse + Inclusive Naval Oceanographic (DINO) Summer Internship Program (SIP)
This internship program for undergraduate students provides opportunities to experience and conduct research, participate in professional development, build community with young scientists, and learn to navigate a career in maritime and oceanographic science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) fields.
The internship is hosted by APL-UW from mid-June to mid-August. Interns receive a stipend of $6000, housing, and limited travel expenses.
Applications due 1 March 2024.
Science & Engineering Enrichment & Development
The Laboratory provides two fellowships per year; each is funded for 2 years. Applicants for the fellowships will have research interests aligned with APL-UW areas of expertise: polar science, ocean physics, air-sea interaction and remote sensing, or ocean engineering. Fellows will define their own research programs in conjunction with an APL-UW principal investigator mentor. Successful postdoc fellows will be motivated and prepared to pursue independent research funding at the end of the 2-year fellowship period.
The application window typically opens in April each year.
|Advancing Student Research
APL-UW faculty advise and mentor several dozen graduate students every year. This facet of the education experience works best when mentor and mentee are proactively engaged in a partnership that evolves over time as the student advances in their studies and research.
