NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center Internship Opportunity Summer 2018

This internship opportunity is part of a NASA-funded project entitled "Center for Applied Atmospheric Research and Education (CAARE)" that is led by San Jose State University (SJSU) and funded by the NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Institutional Research Opportunity (MIRO) Program. The motivation for the establishment of CAARE is to promote STEM literacy and to enhance and sustain the capability to support NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD). As part of this project, three student interns will spend six-ten weeks in summer 2018 at the National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) in Huntsville, Alabama working with NASA-affiliated researchers, Drs. Al-Hamdan, Crosson and Barik (research scientists at the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) at NASA/MSFC) on hands-on research projects that focus on using remote sensing and GIS for studying the impacts of climate and land cover land use changes on water quality, air quality, ecosystems and environmental public health. The environmental data will be based on remotely sensed, in-situ and/or model data (e.g., Landsat-derived Land Surface Temperature (LST) and Land Cover/Land Use; MODIS and OMI air quality data; MODIS LST data; NLDAS meteorological data; SJSU/Clement's in-situ air quality and meteorological sensors), and health data will be based on CDC and/or state/local health reports and databases. Also, the student interns will receive fundamental remote sensing, GIS, geospatial analysis and programming training. Students will be located in the NSSTC (co-location for NASA/MSFC Earth Science Office, USRA Science and Technology Institute, and UAH Earth System and Atmospheric Science Program) and will join with other NASA scientists and interns in additional activities throughout the summer term, including presentation of research results at a poster contest organized by the NASA/MSFC Academic Affairs Office. The students will also have a chance to present their research results at scientific conferences such as the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting and the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting and to contribute to peer-reviewed journal articles.

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, 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.
