Subject: Environmental Science Internship Description: The Palmer lab (www.palmerlab.umd.edu) is seeking a qualified intern interested in gaining lab and field experience working with an environmentally-focused research group for the summer 2021 field season. The internship will be in person and on campus. Adherence to UMD COVID-19 testing requirements and protocols both on and off campus is required. The selected intern(s) will work on projects investigating the fate of organic carbon, including carbon sequestration, transport, and methane emissions, in wetland ecosystems. Work will involve collecting, processing, and analyzing soil, water, and vegetation samples. You will be mentored by graduate and postdoctoral researchers and develop relevant and transferrable field and laboratory skills. This is a full-time, paid position tentatively starting June 1 and ending Aug 20. This position could fulfill internship requirements for select majors and has the potential to continue in the Fall for additional internship credit. The position involves ~75% lab work and ~25% fieldwork in incredibly beautiful landscapes nestled along the Delmarva Peninsula. Candidates must therefore LOVE being outside, hiking, getting dirty, occasionally wet, and capable of withstanding the summer elements (heat, mosquitos, ticks, etc). The position also requires the ability to carry moderate amounts of field gear. Must have excellent communication skills and proficiency in working with a team. Candidates with a background in environmental science (water chemistry, soil science, etc.) and laboratory experience a plus.
