2014 Intern Program sponsored by the Seabrook Is. (SC) Property Owners Association  

There is both a GIS and environmental engineering component to this summer’s scope of work.  The past several summers USC has been able to find two qualified GIS students to spend the summer along the coast working with this group.  This summer they want one person to be more experienced in the aspects of environmental engineering with some exposure to GIS and the second to be primarily a GIS person.

Not only does this internship pay, but the group allocates $750 per month to BOTH students to help with housing.  If you have any more questions about this offer, feel free to contact me as I have coordinated the candidates in the past. This year Mr. Steve Hirsch, the director of engineering on Seabrook, will receive the applications and coordinate the selection process.

Global Health Fellows Program II

Nutrition and Food Security Intern

Location: Washington, DC

Anticipated timeframe: March 1 – August 31, 2014: Compensated 24-Week Internship

INT-P3-040

The Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP-II) is a five year cooperative agreement implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute in partnership with Global Health Corps, GlobeMed, Management Systems International and PYXERA Global. GHFP-II is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

GHFP-II’s goal is to improve the effectiveness of USAID health programs by addressing the Agency’s immediate and emerging human capacity needs. The program seeks to accomplish this goal first through the recruitment, placement and support of diverse health professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels. These program participants include fellows, interns, corporate volunteers and Foreign Service National professionals. The program then provides substantial performance management and career development support to participants, including annual working planning assistance, and ensures that professional development opportunities are available.

Looking to the future, GHFP-II also seeks to establish a pool of highly-qualified global health professionals that will ensure the Agency’s ongoing technical leadership and effectiveness. This objective is supported by an extensive outreach program that brings global health opportunities and specialized career advice to a diverse range of interested individuals, with a particular focus on those underrepresented in the field of global health.  

INTRODUCTION:

The Nutrition and Food Security Intern will be assigned to the Nutrition Division, Office of Health, Infectious Disease and Nutrition, Global Health Bureau (GH), with rotations to the Bureau for Food Security (BFS), Office of Country Strategies and Implementation/Technical Division, Office of Agricultural Research and Policy, and Office of Market and Partnership Innovations. The Intern will contribute to objectives of both Presidential initiatives: Global Health and Feed the Future.

Through Feed the Future (FtF) and the Global Health initiatives (GH), the United States is supporting country-owned programs to address the root causes of undernutrition and improve the future potential of millions of people.  Nutrition is integrated in both initiatives to ensure mothers and young children have access to nutritious food and quality health services. USAID uses evidence-based approaches to ensure good nutrition and supports innovative new approaches that will improve outcomes for the most vulnerable populations.

USAID is pleased to be part of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) global movement, which encourages increased political commitment and programmatic alignment to accelerate reductions in global hunger and undernutrition, and promotes a focus on the 1,000 day window of opportunity from pregnancy to a child’s second birthday. The Intern will receive day to day guidance from the Nutrition Advisor and BFS Policy Team Advisor as his/her onsite managers.

Undergraduate Research Internships

 
North Inlet – Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve
USC Baruch Marine Field Laboratory, Georgetown, SC
 
The North Inlet – Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (www.northinlet.sc.edu), which is part of a national network of 28 NOAA-funded estuarine research sites (www.nerrs.noaa.gov) and is located at the University of South Carolina’s Baruch Marine Field Laboratory (www.baruch.sc.edu), is offering two 10-week undergraduate environmental research internships for the summer of 2014.
The first internship will involve participation in an on-going research and monitoring project focused on the impacts that short-term variability and long term change in sea-level have on salt marsh sediment and vegetation dynamics. The intern will specifically be responsible for conducting field and laboratory based measurements of short-term sediment deposition rates and water column suspended sediment concentrations, as well as assisting with measurements of marsh porewater chemistry.
The second internship will involve participation in a research study broadly focused on the impacts of stormwater detention ponds and stormwater runoff on coastal water quality. The intern will specifically conduct field and laboratory work contributing to an assessment of the performance of coastal detention ponds in removing nutrients, sediment and bacteria from stormwater runoff prior to discharge to downstream receiving waters.
Both internships run from late May to early August (start/end dates somewhat flexible) and provide a $4000 stipend plus free housing in the BMFL dormitories. Interns must provide their own transportation.
Prospective interns should be working towards a B.S. degree in one of the earth, ocean or environmental sciences. Previous field or laboratory work experience is a plus.

 

Interested applicants should send an email to the Reserve’s Research Coordinator, Erik Smith (erik@belle.baruch.sc.edu), identifying which of the two internships they are interested in and why, a description of any relevant prior experiences and course work, and the names and contact information for two references.

LUMCON’s 2014 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program: Interdisciplinary Research Experiences in Changing Coastal Environments

The Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) invites undergraduates to apply for our NSF-sponsored, 2014 REU program in Interdisciplinary Research Experiences in Changing Coastal Environments. We are recruiting highly motivated undergraduates from around the country interested in gaining hands-on research experience. Successful applicants will receive a $5000 stipend, room and board at the Marine Center, funds to support transportation to and from LUMCON, and research and small boat use funds.

Each student will spend ten weeks (June 2nd – August 8th) at LUMCON conducting independent research projects with guidance from scientific mentors/mentor teams while interacting with peers participating in other aspects of LUMCON’s summer field program. Each student is paired with a scientific mentor based on mutual research interests. Areas of research for this summer include biogeochemistry, benthic ecology, coastal geology, coastal hypoxia, wetland science, ecosystem ecology, fisheries and aquaculture, and Gulf Oil Spill impacts.

The program is open to current undergraduates (typically rising juniors and seniors) who are US citizens or permanent residents. Students from underrepresented groups in science, from small colleges, and first generation college students are encouraged to apply. Applications are due March 15, 2014. More information about the program and application materials can be found at http://www.lumcon.edu/REU. Prospective applicants may also send questions to reu@lumcon.edu.

LUMCON, located in Cocodrie, LA, was formed in 1979 to coordinate and stimulate Louisiana's activities in marine research and education and is situated within a dynamic coastal habitat that inspires a myriad of research questions along a freshwater to saltwater continuum. LUMCON faculty and their research teams focus on a variety of related research themes across these diverse habitats, including river/ocean interactions, coastal productivity, delta formation and degradation, human and environmental impacts (including the immediate and long-term impacts of the recent Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill), and organismal ecology. LUMCON’s setting combined with expertise of the faculty and mentor pool provide a unique opportunity for REU students to participate in a scientific research and professional  mentoring program that interfaces fundamental research questions in dynamic coastal ecosystems to science-based policy and management activities.
