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.

This position is currently open:

   Air Quality Monitoring - Sampling Design Internship (Application deadline

   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
interests 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 November of
2018 and continue through May of 2019.
