Summer Research Institute Poster Session--Friday August 1, 10am-12pm, James Room

Come join Barnard Students who are doing summer research in the sciences as they present their work in poster format.  There will be Environmental Science projects as well as the other sciences.


2014 Senior Thesis Poster Session

Thursday, April 24, 4:30 – 6:30 pm:  One-Minute Presentations from 4:30-5:00pm were followed by poster presentations and a reception in the Lower Level Event Oval (LL100), Diana Center Barnard College.  Pictures to come!

Many came to see the best student research in the areas of the Environmental, as Barnard and Columbia majors in Environmental Science, Environmental Biology, Environmental Policy, Earth and Environmental Science, Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology, and Sustainability when Seniors presented their thesis projects in this annual Poster Session. The event marks the culmination of the cutting-edge research Barnard and Columbia students have done with local scientists and is a great way to learn about the fascinating topics with which they’ve been engaged. It has always been attended by friends, students, faculty, mentors, research scientists in the area, and family members and co-sponsored by the Earth Institute at Columbia.  A Reception and Poster Session followed each student's One-Minute Presentation of their thesis.  Congratulations to all participants and all the best with your thesis conclusions!

Visit the Barnard Environmental Science Department web page for a detailed list of thesis topics.  A video of the event will be available soon!

Looking to find Summer Reasearch Internships?

Meetings for Juniors and others interested in finding summer research internships have already taken place.  If you are looking for assistance with this, please speak to your adviser and make an appointment to see Martin Stute as well as be sure to read your emails about opportunities.  Deadlines to apply are fast coming up and some have already closed.

Summer Internships at Lamont

Interested in either the Lamont Summer Internship or and Earth Internship?  You can apply to both.  Projects are already posted in the Program Brochures and listed more fully in Project Descriptions for both on the Lamont Summer Internship Site by clicking on either Lamont or Earth Intern Programs.

Dallas Abbott, who runs the program will be at Barnard to hold an informational lunch meeting about the two programs with students on Thursday, February 20th, in 403 Altschul at 12pm.  If you are interested in either program or are still unsure about finding a summer research project, don't miss it!  Salad and Che Bella Pizza will be available, so please RSVP as soon as you can.


The Keck Lab was in high gear this past summer, as research students mentored by Brian Mailloux worked on projects detecting anything from arsenic to enterococci levels.  Other students were in the Field at Black Rock Forest and in laboratories at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory.  Still others were doing projects at laboratories and field stations across the country.  There are more projects in the offing for the summer, so check in with the department to find out what you might do, and be sure to attend the February 20th meeting with Dallas Abbott above.  And be sure if you are not already on our departmental student email list, you get on it--see below!
