Are you interested in how environmental forces shape human health?
Are you looking for a Co-op that isn’t just a job, but an introduction to research culture and a foundation for an environmental health career?
Imagine an exclusive Co-op opportunity that involves hands-on, competitively paid, environmental health research.
Imagine being paired with a Northeastern University faculty member in your field of interest as a mentor, along with the guidance of graduate and post doctorate students.
Imagine presenting your research, attending conferences, and networking with researchers in environmental health-related sciences.
Then consider applying to become a Northeastern ROUTES Scholar!
The ROUTES research program has been created to diversify the field of environmental health research by recruiting exceptional science, engineering and public health undergraduates from groups traditionally underrepresented in environmental health research. Like the Grand Challenges initiative set by the National Academy of Engineering, ROUTES’ ambition is to highlight the opportunities and obstacles that the next generations of students will encounter as they shape the future of environmental health.
ROUTES scholars will be given the mentoring and hands-on research experience they need to allow them to thrive in a research-based career. We offer innovative opportunities in the environmental health field such as studying the effects of air pollution on brain function, and working to develop remediation technology that will remove chemical contaminants from drinking water.
