Honors Internships

Biosphere 2, in partnership with the Honors College at the University of Arizona, has developed internship opportunities for approximately ten UA Honors students each semester. The internships are suited for Honors students interested in exploring and engaging in the scientific research being conducted at the Biosphere 2 facility, as well as for students interested in the complementary education and outreach activities at the facility. Continuation of projects beyond the initial semester internship is encouraged. Students participating in this 3-unit, semester-long, Biosphere 2 Honors internship will do the following:

  • work under the guidance of faculty/staff members at Biosphere 2 and in the Honors College to conduct research projects that culminate in a presentation and publicly accessible poster (or publication) by semester’s end
  • on a regular basis, explain their work and interact with the public visiting Biosphere 2
  • meet regularly with their fellow interns and faculty/staff members at Biosphere 2 to discuss research progress and learn about the various research projects and interactions with the public 

Please discuss interest with your UA Honors advisor or email Dr. Joost van Haren (JVANHARE@ARIZONA.EDU) for more information.
