NASA Internship (PAID!) - Environmental related projects

NASA DEVELOP Internship Program 2011

Call for Spring and Summer Interns : All degree levels (Bachelor?s, Masters, PhD) are welcome to apply.

DEVELOP is a NASA Science Mission Directorate Applied Sciences Training and Development Program. Students work on earth science research projects, mentored by science advisors from NASA and partner agencies to extend research results to local communities. The projects demonstrate to community leaders and organizations and how NASA science measurements and predictions can be used to address local policy issues.

Past projects include ecological forecasting and study of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, natural hazard assessments of Los Angeles earthquakes and fires, air quality monitoring, and coastal wetland and sea level monitoring using remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS).

Interns work in student teams to complete rapid research projects in 10 weeks using NASA remote sensing data and other data sources.

DEVELOP has opportunities nationwide, but we are actively recruiting for spring and summer 2011 interns at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA.

Spring applications must be postmarked by November 15, 2011. Applications are available through our website.

Summer applications must be postmarked by February 28, 2011.

Internships are paid. Rate varies by educational attainment level. Spring students are expected to work approximately 20 hours/week. Spring interns will begin on January 24, 2011.

Summer students are expected to work approximately 35 hours/week. Summer interns will begin on June 6, 2011.
