GEOSCIENCE WORKFORCE PROGRAM INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY - 2016 FALL DATA INTERNSHIP

The AGI Workforce Program tracks the supply and demand of geoscientists by collecting original data and analyzing existing data from Federal and industry sources, in order to inform the geoscience community of workforce trends and issues through regular reports.  The Workforce Program also engages the next generation of geoscientists by supporting student recruitment at the college level and by communicating with students, faculty, and non-academic professionals about making the transition into the geoscience workforce after graduation.

AGI’s Workforce Program is seeking an intern to work with the Workforce Staff this fall.  Tasks will include selected research and analysis projects, data entry, quality control of new data, and database management for various projects run within the Workforce Program. 

This internship will allow for thought and creativity related to statistical analyses and data presentation.  AGI’s Geoscience Student Exit Survey project has been collecting data from recent geoscience graduates in the U.S. for the past three years, and this year the survey was distributed to two other countries.  The intern will help with comparative analyses of the data between the three countries.

This internship is intended for students pursuing a master’s degree or students that recently graduated with a bachelor’s or master’s degree with experience in data collection, statistical analysis, human subjects research, and/or database management.  Strong communication and teamwork skills are required.

The internship is 12 weeks long and includes a $5,000 stipend.  The preferred starting date would be on or after September 12th.  The internship is located at the offices for the American Geosciences Institute in Alexandria, VA. The intern will be responsible for finding a housing arrangement if needed.

To apply for this position, please send a resume with a cover letter describing how your experience will help you in this position. Please also include names and contact information for two references via email to workforce@agiweb.org, with the subject heading “Fall Workforce Data Internship.”

All applications must be received by July 1, 2016. All applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

For more information, please contact Carolyn Wilson, Geoscience Workforce Data Analyst, at cwilson@americangeosciences.org.

EARTH Science Writing Externship

EARTH’s externship is an opportunity for select students and inexperienced writers to learn about the process of writing and editing a news story about recent scientific research, and to get professionally edited and published clips. Most of our externs have backgrounds studying science — particularly geoscience-related fields relevant to EARTH's typical content — and are interested in potentially pursuing science writing as a part- or full-time career option. But EARTH welcomes applicants of all backgrounds who are interested in sharing what's new in earth science with a broad audience. We typically work with three or four externs at any given time, but we regularly rotate in new writers as positions come open.

If you are selected as an EARTH extern, the position is essentially an as-you're-available writing opportunity. In any given week or month when you have time to write, you'll email us and say, "Hey, I have time to write." Then, either we can assign you a story or you can pitch stories to us — it's up to you. If you've got a great idea for a story and would like practice pitching your idea to an editor, you're encouraged to do so. On the other hand, if you'd prefer that we provide you with an assignment — as is the case with many first-time externs, for example — that's fine too.

Our extern-written stories typically cover a recent, peer-reviewed scientific study or report, and include quotes about the study from multiple expert sources — obtained via first-person interviews — just as a professional news story would. Before your first assignment, we'll provide guidance about the general style, tone and structure of the news stories we publish in EARTH to help get you started. And then we'll work with you through the writing and editorial process. You're encouraged to ask questions, and you're welcome write as frequently or infrequently as works for you and the magazine's editorial staff.

The externship is a remote position; you can work from any location and at your leisure. Once a story is assigned, you’ll generally have one to two weeks to research, report and write it before turning it in. (We do ask that you stick closely to deadlines, so please keep that in mind when determining your availability to write.) Once edited and finalized, extern-written stories are posted on EARTH's website as soon as possible. Select extern-written pieces may also appear in a print issue of the magazine. Publication, either online and/or in print, is subject to the discretion of the editorial staff and is not guaranteed. The externship is unpaid.

If you're interested in the experience, email a cover letter discussing your interest in the geosciences and why you'd make a great extern at EARTH, your resume or CV, and at least one writing sample to earth@earthmagazine.org to apply.
