Hey everyone! And by everyone, I mean majors in MAE, CEE, EMSE, and APSC, but hey to all of my engineers. Anyway, I will be out of the office all of next week and will return to the office Monday, April 21st. Upon my return, I will respond to your e-mails and voice messages at my earliest convenience.
Do you have general questions? Try asking our well-trained front desk staff. They are a great place to start. Trust me, you’re in good hands. If the question is too specific or complicated for them, then they will refer you to me. Also, when in doubt, Hetal will be around for general questions.
Enjoy the wonderful spring weather, and I will see you when I return to the office!
The NASA DEVELOP National Program is an Applied Science program that brings together students, recent graduates, and early/transitioning career professionals to conduct Earth Science research. Participants work in teams to tackle environmental and policy issues through interdisciplinary research that bridges NASA Earth observations and society. The program consists of three 10 week terms in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, during which teams complete professional, practical projects. These projects utilize NASA’s array of Earth observing satellites and Remote Sensing/GIS software to create decision support tools for on-the-ground decision makers. Project research is conducted in Ecological Forecasting, Oceans, Agriculture, Water Resources, Health and Air Quality, Disasters, Energy, Climate, and Weather.
DEVELOP is currently looking for participants to assist with Earth Science research projects over Summer 2014 for a 10 week paid internship, working 30-35 hours a week. The online application will accept applications until February 28th. Applicants can contact Emily Voelker, Communictions YP and Assistant Center Lead DEVELOP National Program at Goddard Space Flight Center with questions at Emily.R.Voelker@nasa.gov.
Requirements: U.S. Citizens.* 3.0 GPA minimum. Over 18. Undergraduate, Graduate Students, Recent Graduates, and Early/Transitioning Career Professionals*.
Those with skills in GIS, Remote Sensing, Geography, Earth Science, Computer Science, Computer Programming, Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Science, and/or Civil Engineering are encouraged to apply.
*Non-US citizens are able to apply to a select number of non-NASA DEVELOP centers. Visit http://develop.larc.nasa.gov/apply.html for more information, and for details on qualifications for “Recent Graduates” and “Early/Transitioning Career Professionals.”
