New Mexico Weeds Webpage

Understanding and managing weeds in agriculture and rangelands is key to healthy, functioning ecosystems. New Mexico Cooperative Extension manages a searchable weeds database to support farmers, ranchers, homeowners, and municipal workers in identifying and responding to weeds. New Mexico State University seeks an intern to assist in updating, testing, and promoting this webpage during Summer 2017.

– The intern will work on updating a database-driven searchable webpage, – as well as on other webpages about native and horticultural plants in New Mexico.

– Skills needed: writing, meticulous data organization, and teamwork. The intern would be actively supervised and supported by editorial and web design staff.

– As part of an integrated team of professionals, the intern will participate in design discussions, user-testing and quality assurance on the website.

– Learning about social media marketing of educational outreach products could also be a focus of this internship, if desired.

– This internship would be based in the Learning Games Lab at New Mexico State University, a studio of instructional designers, artists/animators, programmers, and web designers creating multimedia tools for agricultural, consumer, and environmental sciences education.

– Las Cruces, NM is an affordable small city within easy reach of spectacular hiking, climbing, mountain biking, and cultural sites.
