Research Opportunities for Graduates

We welcome both University of Colorado and non-CU graduate research projects in the Niwot Ridge LTER program. A few summer stipends are available to CU graduate students. Logistical support (e.g., in the form of transportaton, equipment use, data entry, and processing) may also be available for graduate students. Potential CU graduate students should apply for admission to the university through normal channels. Non-CU graduate students are encouraged to contact an appropriate Niwot Ridge LTER researcher. Either use the point of contact below or look for the right person on our People page.

Employment Opportunities for Students

We welcome students with work-study support. University of Colorado student-hourly part-time employment opportunities are common; contact prospective Niwot Ridge LTER scientists.

Employment Opportunities for Non-Students

These are available only on an infrequent basis and we average less than one new or replacement hire per year in this program. Nonetheless, all Niwot Ridge LTER scientists are persistent in their efforts to obtain additional funding for their programs. One might wish to contact an individual Niwot Ridge LTER scientist below.
