UW SURE-EH: Supporting Undergraduate Research Experiences in Environmental Health
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), one of the largest research agencies dedicated to improving human health, has a funded opportunity for underrepresented students at UW to conduct environmental health science-related research alongside faculty in the School of Public Health.
SURE-EH provides a meaningful opportunity to work with experienced faculty on a research project addressing the relationship between environmental exposures and human health. Work alongside faculty as a paid student researcher for up to 2 years, full-time during summer and part-time during the academic year.
Examples of possible projects include:
- Developing resources for local communities at high risk of air pollution exposure
- Developing new methods to detect polio-virus, which is reemerging in Africa
- Analyzing genetic and environmental factors that may influence health outcomes
SURE-EH will provide academic opportunities to complement the research experience, including course recommendations, seminars, workshops, and research symposia. These educational opportunities will enhance your breadth and depth of the SURE-EH's environmental health science training, and help you become a leader in the field of environmental health sciences.
This program provides up to two years of hourly employment to UW students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to conduct research in areas relevant to the environmental health sciences and the mission of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Students will work up to 40 hours per week over the summer, and up to 15 hours per week during the academic year.
