Fall Internship Opportunity at Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (Edgewater, MD)

Beginning in October 2020, the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) located in Edgewater, MD began a Science to Go program in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Libraries. SERC Public Engagement staff collaborate with SERC scientists to develop low-cost science activity kits that are distributed through county libraries. All of the materials in the kits are low cost, easily attainable, and shelf stable. Families can pick the kits up and do the activities on their own, follow along live with SERC educators and researchers in a live Zoom broadcast, or follow the activity from the recording. The program has served as a way to engage families from all throughout the school district and is part of SERC’s larger DEI and broadening participation initiatives.

Internship Project
This intern will coordinate with the SERC Public Engagement team to develop two Science to Go activities. They will work with the researchers to plan the live event and with volunteers to organize and pack Science to Go kits. They will also participate in a new effort to expand the program to the Enoch Pratt Library system in Baltimore city.

In addition to the independent project, the intern will be broadly exposed to and participate in SERC public engagement activities. Responsibilities may include taking photographs and creating content for the citizen science, volunteer, public programs, and education sections of the SERC webpage, working with volunteers in the field on a variety of projects, engaging with K-12 students both at SERC and in classroom settings, interacting with SERC researchers, and communicating SERC research to members of the public through direct and virtual interactions.

Learning Objectives of the Internship:
The intern will participate in all aspects of the SERC public engagement program, gaining experience in volunteer training and management, coordination of volunteer activities, interaction with researchers, interactions with K-12 students in formal and informal settings, and science communication.
The intern will complete an independent research project to develop appropriate Science to Go activities and plan for live Science to Go events.
The intern is expected to increase their knowledge of SERC environmental science by attending formal and informal seminars.
The intern will gain professional development experience by participating in meetings related to the planning, management, and evaluation of SERC public engagement projects and programs.
The intern will be expected to summarize their accomplishments in a public seminar at the end of the project period under the supervision of the SERC public engagement team.

Please send resume and letter of interest to Dr. Alison Cawood at cawooda@si.edu
Deadline for submissions is July 29th.

Fall Internship opportunity at Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (Edgewater, MD)

The Photobiology and Solar Radiation laboratory at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, MD focuses on solar radiation and its effects on aquatic photochemistry, phytoplankton activity, carbon cycling, microbial growth, and ecosystem productivity. One tool in understanding these ecosystem effects is remote sensing of ocean color.  In a new NASA sponsored project, SERC Photobiology Lab and Citizen Science program, in collaboration with the City University of New York, are developing methods that citizen scientists can use to make optical observations in the Chesapeake Bay.  The overall objective of the program is to involve citizen scientists in the acquisition of data that can be used to validate remote-sensing based estimates of Bay water quality variables such as phytoplankton biomass, colored dissolved organic matter and suspended sediments.

Internship Project
During fall of 2021, the intern will perform field, laboratory and on line activities as part of the NASA citizen science project.  Initially, the focus will be on reviewing draft protocols for sampling, fluorescence and turbidity measurements and field testing of these protocols working with both SERC personnel and citizen science volunteers (e.g., riverkeeper organizations).  As part of the testing, water samples will be taken and analyzed with several types of laboratory instruments (fluorometers, turbidimeters, spectrophotometers).  The intern will also help develop protocols and test results from observations using a smartphone app, Hydrocolor.   Online activities will include working with acquired data and developing outreach materials for recruiting and training citizen science volunteers.

Learning Objectives of the Internship
The intern will become familiar with the methods and goals of performing optical measurements in estuarine waters and will interact with technicians and senior scientists, thus becoming familiar with the process of reporting experimental results in the scientific literature.  She will receive training in the fields of optics, biogeochemistry, photobiology and estuarine ecology, and will build skills in data analysis and statistical approaches.  The intern will also acquire skills in public outreach and education in environmental science through the citizen science aspects of project and also by preparing a short, general interest video about a subject of her choice.  The intern will give an oral presentation summary of her research results at the end of the period (in a virtual format) as well as a written report on the data.

Please send resume and letter of interest to Dr. Patrick Neale at nealep@si.edu
Deadline for submissions is July 29th.

Fall Internship Opportunity for SERC

MARINE INVASIONS RESEARCH LABORATORY

Fall 2021 FOULING PROJECT INTERN

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Our research encompasses a wide range of projects, exploring the ecology and management of coastal marine ecosystems.  We focus primarily on invasion dynamics but also examine species interactions of both native and non-native species. Overall, we study the patterns of marine invasions across space, time, and taxonomic groups and evaluate non-native management strategies. We seek to understand what drives those patterns, how to predict the future spread and impacts of non-native species, and how they affect species interactions, including predator-prey and host-parasite relationships.

INTERNSHIP PROJECT
For the Fouling Survey project, we conduct standardized surveys of the fouling community to document both native and introduced species in bays and estuaries. We study the diversity of fouling communities, how it changes over time, and how new species change community structure, composition and abundance. This fall internship with the Fouling Project will be focused on data entry and specimen curation. Interns will have the opportunity to study patterns in non-native species diversity, the methods non-native species use to disperse themselves globally, and what makes them successful locally. We anticipate that the intern will spend 25% of their time working on an independent project that is part of the larger fouling community study, 25% assisting with miscellaneous lab projects, and 50% aiding in various aspects of the fouling project. Some of this internship could also be virtual, but most will be on site at our lab facilities.

DETAILS
This internship will be located at our facility in Edgewater, Maryland though a portion could be virtual. The internship dates span early Sept through late December for a total of 16 weeks with some flexibility.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, local residents may be favored if conditions relating to travel or housing change.

HOUSING
Currently dorm availability on campus is closed, though is expected to reopen this Fall. 

COMPENSATION
The intern will receive a stipend of $600 per week.

TO APPLY
Please submit a cover letter stating why you are applying to the internship, a CV or resume, academic transcript (unofficial is acceptable), and contact information for 2 references to falsonel@si.edu.

DEADLINE
For full consideration, please submit your application no later than July 29, 2021
