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 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 late August. 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.
