JIRP summer 2013, and NPS physical science positions in AK

We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted
for the 2013 Juneau Icefield Research Program.

JIRP is an experience-based educational and research program that
takes senior high school, undergraduate, and graduate-level students
on an 8-week, self-powered expedition from Juneau, AK, to Atlin, BC,
over the Juneau Icefield.  During this expedition, students receive
training and experience in backcountry skiing, glacier travel, and
crevasse rescue; participate in JIRP’s long-running mass balance and
surface elevation surveys; receive lectures from top scientists in a
range of natural sciences (including glaciology, geology, climatology,
meteorology, biology, and ecology); and perform individual research
projects, the results of which they present at public symposia in
Atlin and Juneau.  Students receive academic credits for participation
in the program from the University of Alaska Southeast.

This year’s program will run from June 21 through August 16.  The cost
for the program is $4800; this includes all transportation, food,
lodging, and instruction following arrival in Juneau, Alaska (but does
not include transportation to and from Juneau).  Some scholarships are
available.  Application materials and additional information are
available at  To ensure full consideration for
acceptance and scholarships, completed applications should be
submitted by April 15.

Please pass this information along to interested students, colleagues,
and friends.  You can also visit our blog at and
follow us on Facebook
