Grads & Undergrads: CSU-Honduras Cookstove Project Fieldwork

CSU-Honduras Cookstove Project Student Application for Cookstove Fieldwork

Requirement: Conversational knowledge of Spanish is essential!

We are seeking qualified undergraduate or graduate students to participate in a research project in Honduras. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to apply relevant engineering and environmental health skills to solving real-world problems. Travel, lodging, and per diem will be provided.

The research project is examining exposures and health effects of indoor biomass cookstoves in farming villages throughout Yamaranguila and Intibucá in the southwestern region of Honduras, near the town of La Esperanza. The current project is a longitudinal study, which started in August 2015 and is expected to last 3 years. Approximately 250 women with traditional stoves have been enrolled to explore their health and indoor air pollution over time, comparing measures before and after an improved stove intervention. We are working closely with community leaders to ensure a community-engaged approach. This research is looking for interested students to assist with data collection and management for the field session in Honduras, with the possibility to continue working on the project in the future.
