Work with NASA scientists over the summer!

The NASA DEVELOP program is offering 10-week paid and volunteer research opportunities this summer. The positions are open to current students and recent college graduates.

NASA DEVELOP projects focus on addressing local and international community concerns while using NASA's earth observations at 13 locations across the country. This is a great opportunity for participants interested in practical applications of remote sensing and GIS, specifically in the field of earth science.

Participants will work with NASA scientists, partner organizations, and science advisors to learn about the use of NASA remote sensing imagery for use in water resources, disaster management, ecological forecasting, and other applications to address environmental community concerns.

Responsibilities will include literature review, data processing and analysis, and producing deliverables, such as a technical report, presentation, and video. Previous GIS or remote sensing knowledge, while beneficial, is not required for acceptance. This is a multi-disciplinary opportunity for all those interested in earth science and we encourage those in the social sciences, science, engineering, computer science, etc. to apply.

The work term is June 4-Aug. 10, 2018, and the application deadline is Friday, Feb. 16.

Applicants must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to work in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment. Days of the week are flexible, but applicants should be able to commit to 20-29 hours per week during the summer term. The position is paid on an hourly basis determined by education level.

Further details and application information are available at develop.larc.nasa.gov.
