Internship Opportunities on NASA’s GIS Team

Langley Research Center in partnership with the Virginia Space Grant Consortium is offering the Geographic Information Systems Internship Program to provide student support to the NASA GIS Team. The GIS Internship Program is open to community college, undergraduate, and graduate students majoring in the fields of geography, technology, and civil engineering. Experience in geospatial technology or an interest in developing skills in spatial data technology in support of NASA’s mission is a plus. Exceptional and highly motivated high school students with at least a 3.3 GPA are also eligible. Applicants should have a demonstrated interest in entering a field such as geography, urban planning, civil engineering, or related area. The primary duties of the selected interns will include supporting the development, maintenance, and data input in GIS for NASA’s Langley Research Center. Interns will also perform updates to building floor plans and assist with modifying center spatial data and Web interface. Students from outside the Hampton, VA, area are responsible for their own lodging. Student interns will receive a stipend and are guest researchers of NASA’s Langley Research Center. Paid internships during summer, fall, and spring are available each year. Applications for summer are due March 7, 2009.
