Opportunities with CRI

CRI Summer Student Internship program participants conducting research

  • The CRI Summer Student Internship program provides funded internships to undergraduate students. The program runs for six weeks, with students working 20-30 hours per week. Students are required to produce a paper at the end of their project and may have the opportunity to continue their research projects during the academic year. Depending on research projects, students will work with a CSE faculty mentor and have the opportunity to give presentations to the LMU and Santa Monica Bay communities.
  • Faculty involvement in CRI is vital to the institute's success. Faculty can get involved in a variety of ways, including:

    • Serving as mentors for summer and academic year research projects
    • Giving presentations on research results about Santa Monica Bay
    • Interacting with city, county and state agencies and personnel
    • Developing curricula to support CRI activities
    • Serving as co-authors on grants
    • Receiving CRI fellowships as seed money for follow-up with grant proposals to further their work with CRI
    • Serving as CRI faculty affiliates 
  • CRI hosts post-docs and/or visiting scholars to study and research with the institute. These visitors may also have some teaching responsibilities.
