Training the Next Generation of the Climate Science Workforce Print E-mail

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Fourteen interns hailing from colleges and universities around the country are making essential contributions to the work of USGCRP this summer. With interests ranging from chemistry to economics to meteorology, the students are working on a variety of projects including the development of the new indicators program, the National Climate Assessment report, and the Metadata Access Tool for Climate and Health (MATCH).

While at USGCRP, the interns have the opportunity to expand their experience and skills as well as gain a larger perspective on the science and politics of climate change at the national level. If you are interested in interning at USGCRP, please visit our Programmatic News Feed or our Facebook page to view our most recent job postings.
