Hi Anthony and Suzanne!

I hope this finds all going well with you two, both personally and

I'm reaching out to see if you could please help me by sending out the
attached notice to the GEM student email list (and possibly the same for
CEDAR if you're also in touch with their student community).

Aerospace is looking for summer interns, in particular to work on some
projects for me (including lab work and some work on Van Allen Probes
and/or MMS data analysis) and Dr. Rebecca Bishop (GNSS radio occultation
for ionospheric studies).  The details are attached.  Any GEM student is
already very well qualified, but we do have a strict requirement that
applicants be US citizens, which I understand limits the applicant pool.

Anyway, if you can, please do pass this along to your fellow GEM students
(and CEDAR if possible).  To apply, students just need to go to the careers
website listed there and search for either of the two requisition numbers
listed and then follow the instructions to apply.  You can point any
questions to me too.

Thanks so much, and all the best
