We are pleased to announce a paid summer internship opportunity with the
National Park Service for 2015 and ask you to please help us disseminate
the following information.  There are many really interesting projects this
year that are in Parks across the country. The application deadline is
January 30, 2015.

A flyer is also attached.


The George Melendez Wright Young Leaders in Climate Change program provides
paid summer internships to highly accomplished graduate and upper-level
undergraduate students to work on diverse issues related to climate change
and its effects in national parks. The internship projects may occur in
national parks or program offices and are designed by National Park Service
(NPS) staff to meet high-priority needs of parks and programs. General
topic areas include resource conservation and adaptation; climate effects
monitoring; park facilities adaptation; policy development; sustainable
operations & mitigation; and communication, interpretation, or education.

Interns in 2015 will work on a wide variety of projects available,
including: monitoring ocean acidification and intertidal biological
communities; supporting a multidisciplinary science team working to respond
to and mitigate the impacts of climate change to archaeological resources;
developing a predictive model of snow patches likely to contain significant
archaeological and/or paleoecological materials; conducting field surveys
to determine plant community shifts and diversity changes in response to
soil moisture change; developing strategies for how to incorporate climate
change adaptation and storm preparedness options into the rehabilitation of
historic structures; and creating a web-based template for communicating
climate change information to the public.

Internship positions run full-time (40 hours/week) for 11-12 weeks,
generally during the summer months. They pay $14/hour plus benefits.
Interns are employees of the University of Washington. Most positions come
with free or subsidized housing in dormitories or other shared
accommodations in parks. They are all rigorous and challenging projects
that demand high-level academic knowledge and skills and that afford
interns with considerable autonomy and opportunity for leadership under an
effective mentor.
