NCAR High Altitude Observatory (HAO) 2016 Engineering Internship Recruitment
*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,

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
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/>.
