The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) has 1-2 positions available for undergraduate interns. The title of the project is: Sea-Level-Rise-Induced Release of Arsenic from Flood-Prone Contaminated Coastal Sediments, and students working on this project would be a component of a multi-disciplinary project and specific project goals will be formed to cater to students’ interests. The results of this research will provide insights into how physical and chemical processes interact during SLR to release sediment-bound metals and control their distribution in the solution and solid phase.
Dates of internship: November 1, 2021 – May 13, 2022 (Hybrid)
Introductory experience with chemistry.
Work Environment and Expectations:
Laboratory environment: Harker ISE Lab 4th floor. Hours are flexibly determined between student and mentor. Students may participate in a retreat, communications workshop at the end of internship.
