Potential Internship at Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC)

Hi All,

Brock Tabor from ADEC contacted me to see if there is any student interest in a paid internship at the Alaska Monitoring & Assessment Program of ADEC (https://dec.alaska.gov/water/water-quality/monitoring/). The intern would be responsible for helping to sample small streams around SE Alaska for water quality during the upcoming summer. The main qualifications would be interest/experience in field-based research and experience with GIS, some knowledge of statistics would be useful as well.  If there is sufficient interest at UAS, the position will likely be assigned to Juneau (as opposed to Anchorage) and opened for applications in the coming months.

If you would potentially be interested in applying for this position, please send me (ewhood@alaska.edu) an email and let me know so that I can let Brock know if there would be a local pool of applicants.  Thanks,

Eran
