Subject: Paid internships with the National Park Service

Description:
The U. S. National Park Service (NPS) National Capital Region (NCR), Office
of Natural Resources and Science (NRS) is seeking to fill paid internship
positions. Interns will work closely with the NPS Urban Ecology Research
Learning Alliance’s Science Education Coordinator.

UERLA is a National Park Service Research Learning Center that serves 16
parks in National Capital Region. They translate complex research results
into readily understandable information, providing research, education, and
technical assistance for parks. UERLA also provides science communication
outreach to park managers and external audiences via websites, workshops, and
publications. UERLA maintains research and education partnerships with
universities, not-for- profit, education, and other federal agencies. The
education activities of UERLA include providing training opportunities for
NPS staff and partners, participating in science education programs, and
building external partnerships that support science education in parks.
Within the Natural Resources and Science Office, other science programs, such
as botany, wildlife, geology, air resources, and inventory and monitoring,
aquatic ecology work with the Urban Ecology Research Learning Alliance on
interdisciplinary projects.

Students must be enrolled in a degree program at the University of Maryland.
The positions are University of Maryland paid internships. Students should
consult with their academic advisor to determine if they can also receive
academic credit for their internship.

These positions are currently open:

   1. Air Quality Monitoring - Sampling Design Internship (Application 
deadline
9-28-18)

   The U. S. National Park Service (NPS) National Capital Region (NCR), Office
of Natural Resources and Science (NRS) is seeking an upper level student with
a background in Experimental Design, Air Monitoring, Ground-level Pollution,
or related fields. The intern will design a monitoring system and protocols
to evaluate air pollutant exposure to visitors within urban parks. The highly
urbanized and rapidly growing region around NCR parks makes them increasingly
important as a critical refugia for urban visitors and other species in a
changing climate. We anticipate that the internship will begin in October of
2018 and continue through May of 2019, as needed.

2. Picture Post Citizen Science engagement Internship (Application deadline
9-28-18)

The U. S. National Park Service (NPS) National Capital Region (NCR), Office
of Natural Resources and Science (NRS) is seeking a student with a background
in science communication, science education, science outreach, public
engagement or related fields. The intern will evaluate visitor participation
at the 5 picture post locations in the National Parks of the National Capital
Region. The intern will consider the current photo contributions seeking
mechanisms for increasing citizen engagement and improving use of the images.
The highly urbanized and rapidly growing region around NCR parks makes them
increasingly important as a critical refugia for biodiversity as species
expand their ranges from the south in response to climate change. This
internship will begin in October of 2018 and could continue through May of
2019.
