ERSP Summer Research 2022

Applications for the Summer ERSP Research Opportunity are closed. We look forward to welcoming the selected researchers on campus this summer!

In 2022, we are launching a summer research experience for students who have participated in any ERSP program at UC San Diego or any of our partner institutions (UCSB, Stanford, UIC, UMass Amherst and NC State University). Students will work in small teams with UC San Diego faculty on research projects. This is a full-time paid position ($20/hour). Dates of the program can be arranged based on students' and mentors' schedules but will be ~8-10 weeks between June 13 and September 16, 2022.

Please submit the following, via the application link below:
