Dear all,

The American Geosciences Institute will be hiring two interns this summer
in our Geoscience Policy and Critical Issues programs - see below for more
details of each. The internships are based in Alexandria, VA (just across
the river from DC), run for 12 weeks, and come with a fixed stipend of
$5000. You must be a U.S. citizen and enrolled in, or have recently
completed, a geoscience or geo-related bachelor's or master's degree
program to apply. *The application deadline for both internships is March

Geoscience Policy Internship
the Geoscience Policy program represents the geoscience community in
Washington DC, and actively works with Congress and federal agencies to
foster sound public policy in areas that affect geoscientists, including
water, energy, and mineral resources; geologic hazards; environmental
protection; and federal funding for geoscience research and education. AGI
seeks outstanding geoscience or geo-related students (undergraduate or
master's) and recent graduates with a strong interest in federal science
policy. Interns will hone their writing and web publishing skills while
gaining first-hand understanding of the legislative process and executive
branch agencies. Apply here

Critical Issues Internship
the Critical Issues program supports well-informed public decision making
by providing relevant geoscience information on critical issues to decision
makers, with particular emphasis on the state and local levels. The program
makes geoscience information more discoverable through our web-based
information products, webinar series, forums, and research database. AGI
seeks outstanding geoscience or geo-related students (undergraduate or
master's) and recent graduates with a strong interest in state and local
science policy, science communication, and outreach. The Critical Issues
intern will develop geoscience-based content for the program's website and
help to expand our network of state and local decision makers. Interns will
hone their research, writing, web-publishing, and communication skills,
while gaining a first-hand understanding of science policy from the federal
to the local level. The Critical Issues program works closely with the
Geoscience Policy program, so the intern will also have the opportunity to
attend and report on occasional briefings and geoscience policy events in
Washington DC. Apply here
