Internship Opportunities in Climate Change Adaptation

The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and the USDA Northern Forests Climate Hub are
offering undergraduate internships for summer 2018. Ideal candidates will be pursuing a bachelor’s
degree in environmental studies, natural resources, biology, geography, or a closely related field and
have a passion for science communication. Projects will be determined based on the intern’s skills and
interests, but could include: writing content for Web pages, social media, briefings, and newsletters;
conducting literature reviews; assisting with workshops and trainings; developing graphics that
summarize key scientific information; and creating maps using GIS. Interns will gain valuable skills in
science communication, climate change adaptation, and science synthesis while interacting with a wide
variety of scientists and science communication professionals at the US Forest Service and partner
institutions. The position will be based in either Houghton, MI, or St. Paul, MN. This position is unpaid,
but students are encouraged to seek funding support from their home institution. More information on
