  • Meet faculty with dedicated experience in ecology and earth sciences.

The EESFR Residency is a unique opportunity for students to work closely with experienced faculty to develop field and laboratory research and analysis skills that are invaluable in the environmental and earth systems sciences.

During their time in Cooperstown, students will gain hands-on experience and become familiar with laboratory equipment and apply this technology to field work and data collection. The residency is of particular interest to students studying ecology, earth science and geology.
