NASA DEVELOP Summer 2017

The NASA DEVELOP Program is currently recruiting for the summer 2017 term. This is a 10-week paid contracting position open for current students, recent college graduates, and career transitioning professionals including veterans of the Armed Forces. Although the term is only 10 weeks, there are many opportunities to advance through the program to year-long contracts.

This is a great opportunity for individuals who are interested in practical applications of remote sensing and GIS, specifically in the field of Earth Science. Our projects focus on addressing local and international community concerns while utilizing NASA’s Earth observations. Participants work in teams, with guidance from NASA and partner science advisors, to demonstrate to partner organizations how NASA remote sensing imagery can be used in water resources, disaster management, ecological forecasting, and other applications to address environmental community concerns. DEVELOP’s projects are interdisciplinary in nature, so applications are welcome from all academic backgrounds.

Details about the internship and how to apply can be found at http://develop.larc.nasa.gov/. The summer online application window is January 9 – February 17.  The summer program dates are June 5 – August 11. This program has three terms: spring, summer, and fall – the term dates and application windows are updated on the “Apply” page of the DEVELOP website. In addition to Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, there are many other locations across the United States that you can find on the “About” page.

Responsibilities will include: literature review, data processing and analysis, and composing deliverables including a technical paper, poster, presentation, and video. Previous GIS or remote sensing knowledge, while beneficial and more competitive, are not required for acceptance.

Applicants must have excellent communication and writing skills and be able to work in a fast-paced environment. Days of the week are flexible, but applicants should be able to commit to 20-30 hours per week for the summer term. Paid positions are funded as consultants using a rate determined by application type, education level, and location.

2 NASA Internships

https://intern.nasa.gov/ossi/web/public/guest

Opportunity Title: GIS developer/analysts
Opportunity Type: Internship
Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) hosts and serves multidisciplinary, multi-dimensional, multi-scale spatiotemporal Earth science data products derived from Earth Observation System (EOS) satellites and from science models. These data are useful for a wide range of GIS research and applications in areas as climate, atmosphere, hydrology, weather, and agriculture. As we have seen an increasing number of GIS users accessing and using our data in various GIS platforms and software packages, we would like to provide this opportunity for this internship to further our efforts in making NASA earth data better used in the GIS communities, through either enhancing our GIS service capability or developing real world applications. The GIS service enhancement mainly involves enabling GES DISC data in ArcGIS services (image and feature servers) and presentation/visualization in ArcGIS portals (portal for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Online). This internship will involve mini GIS projects or use case scenarios by utilizing GES DISC data. The following are some of the applications as an example, but the intern is highly encouraged to propose his/her own project after browsing through the science data parameters from GES DISC: 1) downscaling regional scale precipitation and soil moisture (or other parameters such as temperature) for local applications, 2) crop growth suitability analysis through using such data as solar radiation, temperature, precipitation, soil moisture, 3) natural disaster susceptibility analysis, such as landslide, hurricane, flood, and drought, 4) spatial and temporal analyses of extreme ecoclimatological events or phenomena, such as soil moisture deficiency, dust, air pollution.
The results of the internship should provide enough material for a poster presentation at an AGU conference or similar professional meetings and also for an entry in the GES DISC cookbook/recipe to help other GIS users.
The student should have taken introductory GIS courses and familiar with the ArcGIS software.  Knowledge/proficiency in ArcPy is a plus.

Paid, Part-Time Arlington Research Job

STUDENTS NEEDED FOR PAID RESEARCH PROJECT IN ARLINGTON

Are you interested in urban planning, transportation, or public policy? Do you like talking to people? We’re looking for undergrads, grad students, or recent graduates for a paid research project in Arlington, Virginia about people’s travel habits. This fall and spring, we’re surveying different residential, office, and institutional buildings to learn how Arlington residents and workers get around.

Our surveys take place Tuesdays and Thursdays during the morning (7-9:30am) and afternoon (4-7pm) rush hour. Each survey is at a different site in Arlington County. Most sites are within walking distance of a Metro station.

This is a temporary, part-time position that pays $15/hour. You can work as much or as little as you like, but we require that you show up on time and stay for the duration of each survey.

Over the past two years, this project has produced some really interesting findings about local transportation. If you’re interested in taking part, we’d love to hear from you:

Virtual Student Foreign Service

Great Opportunity!!!  Deadline Wednesday July 22nd:

https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/407432100

The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) is a nine-month, unpaid eInternship. VSFS virtually connects U.S. citizen college students with State Department, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Foreign Commercial Service, Foreign Agriculture Service, Broadcasting Board of Governors, and other US government agency domestic offices and U.S. diplomatic posts overseas to engage in digital diplomacy. Because these eInternships are virtual, students can have a flexible virtual work schedule during the academic year, allowing both academic and eInternship goals to be met.

The State Department is looking to American college students to lead the State Department and U.S. Government in conducting digital diplomacy and engage American citizens in its diplomatic efforts. A Virtual Student Foreign Service eInternship is an opportunity to play an important role in advancing the federal government’s reach in diplomacy, development, journalism, trade, and agriculture initiatives. eInterns will act as citizen diplomats and will have the opportunity to connect with each other and work collaboratively with eInterns across the country.

The Department of State and the Bureau of Information Resource Management’s Office of eDiplomacy encourage college and graduate students from all majors and backgrounds to apply to the VSFS eInternship program.
