Job Description

    *NCAR High Altitude Observatory (HAO) 2016 Engineering Internship

    The High Altitude Observatory (HAO) at the National Center for
    Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder anticipates hiring two
    undergraduate students from the University of Colorado who are
    active within the Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and
    Diversity (BOLD) Center.


      Program dates: May 16 to July 29 (30 hours/week)

    *Application deadline: Friday, February 26, 4pm (*Interviews
    conducted Friday, March 11)

    Hourly rate: $15.75/hour

    *Basic Job Function:*Participates in the High Altitude Observatory’s
    Instrumentation Group as an engineering intern. Supports electrical,
    mechanical, optical and/or software engineering activities in the
    Observatory with support from an engineering mentor. May participate
    in field work supporting solar research. Engineering mentor provides
    project scope and guidance. Support of several different tasks of
    varying complexity and duration can be expected.

    *Duties (Potential Projects):*

      * Assist with the development of a field deployed
        Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrometer being designed to make
        the first ever measurements of the mid-infrared solar coronal
        spectrum during the total solar eclipse of August 2017
        (experience with LabVIEW or LabVIEW Real Time would be helpful
        for this project)
      * Assist with design and fabrication of the Visible
        Spectropolarimeter (ViSP), a first light instrument for the
        Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope which will measure solar
        dynamics at extremely high spatial and spectral resolutions.

      * Assist with the fabrication and testing of the HiWIND high
        altitude balloon platform for a science flight to measure
        thermospheric winds over Antarctica (planned for December 2017).
      * Develop methods for translating engineering data streams into
        proof of pointing control system performance aboard the SUNRISE
        solar telescope balloon platform

    *Required Education*:

      Must be a degree-seeking undergraduate at the University of
    Colorado in a science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) field
    and a participant within theBOLD Center <http://www.colorado.edu/bold/>.
