Research areas: We use long term ecological field research programs to tackle locally relevant conservation issues in our region. Based on sound science, we design conservation intervention programs that aim to reduce identified impacts, and to raise awareness through strategic conservation education programs that engage communities involved. In terms of plastics research, we aim to reduce single use plastics on our beaches, and in so doing reduce the direct impact on local wildlife.

In terms of research, we conduct baseline monitoring on marine debris deposited on several beaches in our region, which we correlate with beach user data. We also measure direct impact on biodiversity through target specific research on fish and birds, in terms of entanglement, ingestion and plastic use in nests. Based on this we run socio-ecological programs aimed at reducing the amount of waste to landfill from our region, by engaging the public and businesses to improve waste management.

Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK
Research areas: Plymouth Marine Laboratory’s research into microplastics focuses on their fate in the marine environment and impact on marine organisms. Our latest laboratory and field studies suggest that interactions with marine life could play an important role in the fate and impacts of microplastics.

Current research involves investigating the bioavailability of microplastics to zooplankton and the ability of mussels to remove microplastics from flowing water. We take an interdisciplinary approach, applying expertise in ecotoxicology, molecular, microbial, social sciences, remote sensing and modelling. PML has recently undergone a £5.4 million refurbishment, including a brand new ultraclean microplastic laboratory with dedicated microscopy and FTIR spectroscopy, in addition to constant temperature rooms and mesocosm facility.

Sustainable Seas Trust, South Africa
Research areas: The Sustainable Seas Trust (SST) and its project the African Marine Waste Network (AMWN) have a goal of Zero Plastics to the Seas of Africa. Reliable, measurable data on macro-, meso- and microplastics for Africa is urgently needed, as Africa is data poor in this regard.

SST’s research programmes are focused on developing the techniques to be implemented across Africa for collecting reliable and measurable macro-, meso- and microplastics data, stopping waste flow to the sea and monitoring progress towards zero plastics. These include the use of remote sensing over land-based sources, plotting waste flow channels on land, and providing measurements for rivers, estuaries and coasts; river (and estuary) bank, beach and marine environment sampling techniques and clean-ups; data management and analysis with a view to develop monitoring strategies and predictive models. In addition to the measurements of the amount of plastic and microplastics in different parts of the environment, the build-up of pollutants from microplastics in marine organisms is also being conducted under SST’s research mandate.

University of Cape Town, South Africa
Research areas: At the University of Cape Town, research on plastics in the marine environment dates back to the early 1980s, when Peter Ryan was studying the ingestion of plastics by seabirds. In 1984 he and Coleen Moloneyteamed up to start a long-term monitoring programme quantifying both meso- and macroplastics on South African beaches. This survey has been repeated at five-year intervals, with the next survey planned for June 2020.

Over the years, the research group expanded its interests to include additional aspects of plastic pollution, such as distributions of plastics at sea, daily deposition rates of plastics on beaches, the relationship between beach users and marine plastic pollution, sinking rates of plastics, ingestion of plastics by a variety of marine organisms, etc. We would be delighted to host a fellow who is interested in carrying out fieldwork quantifying long-term trends in the supply, removal and accumulation of plastic litter on beaches.

Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA) has announced the summer 2019 Robotics Institute Summer Scholars (RISS) Robotics Research Program for Undergraduate Students.

  • Applications will be accepted till January 15 at
  • Program dates are June 1 to August 15.
  • Funding and support are available for both U.S. and international students.

Why Robotics & RISS?

Robotics-related technologies are becoming ubiquitous and are dominating national headlines due to innovations such as driverless cars, service robots, surgical robots, and aerial vehicles. Robots and the knowledge required to create, operate, and interact with them will become increasingly important to society.

The RISS program is designed to immerse students in the world of robotics. Through RISS, students perform research under the mentorship of top scientists in robotics and intelligent systems at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute. The research mentors are leaders in a broad range of robotics research (e.g. field robotics, computer vision, machine learning, artificial intelligence, autonomy, machine learning, graphics, human-robot interaction, and space robotics).

The RISS-guided research experience is coupled with powerful professional development and hands-on robotics experiences with industry leaders in a nurturing global community and culminates in August with an annual research poster session and the publication of the RISS Working Papers Journal. Many students continue to collaborate with RISS mentors, labs, and cohort members.

More information about the program, including 2018 research posters and papers (2018 the RISS Working Papers Journal) can be found here

Contact the Directorate of International Relations for more details.

Summer Program at NASA’s Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Scientific Operations Center for Hubble Space Telescope – Earth’s Greatest Observatory at Space

Extraterrestrial Life beyond Earth discovered using HST | The only Telescope serviced in space by astronauts

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is the science operations center for the Hubble Space Telescope (in orbit since 1990) and for the James Webb Space Telescope (scheduled to be launched in March 2021). STScI is located on the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA.

2019 Space Astronomy Summer Program

Application Timeline: January 1–31, 2019

Program Duration: June 17 to August 16, 2019 [9 Weeks]

Stipends & Subsidies:

* USD 5850 [~INR 4 Lakh]

* Travel reimbursement

* Housing assistance

Eligible Departments: Mech, Aero, Auto, CSE & IT [UG 2nd*, 3rd Yr & PG]


* Profile [Full Bio-Data]

* Motivational Essay [Statement of Purpose]

* 2 – Reference Letters


Expectations of NASA (STScI)

Exceptional Students with strong background, research experience; the ability to work independently; confidence in their limits; and not afraid to ask for help.

However, none of these qualities or skills is a requirement.


Research Areas

* Engineering Projects – Students work with physicists and mechanical engineers on instrumentation and testing; software engineers and computer scientists on internal and external software tools; flight operations staff on the creation and testing of scripts to operate the science instruments on board the telescopes; or scientists to analyze large volumes of data.

* Instrumentation Projects – Students will be part of a team that prepares raw data from the Hubble or James Webb Space Telescopes for scientific analysis. Each scientific instrument (e.g., cameras and spectrographs) has a team of scientists, analysts, and engineers who calibrate and characterize the raw data from their instruments. Interns can gain a deep understanding of how instruments on board a space telescope are operated and how to process the resulting data to enable precise scientific measurements.


Other Benefits

* Summer Lecture by NASA Scientists

* Guided tour to NASA’s various locations

* Students are encouraged & time will be available to visit local cities like Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City
