Online Job Announcement
The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) increasingly use mapping to monitor progress and manage watersheds. ADEC identifies Alaska Clean Water Action priority waters and impaired waters to protect water quality and restore polluted waters to healthier conditions, but GIS data is limited on these waters. The intern will receive training on how to update and modernize GIS data for impaired and priority waters in preparation for catchment analysis. The intern will update GIS data on impaired and priority waters using the National Hydrography Dataset and the United States Geological Service (USGS) Hydrography Event Management tool. Results of this work will facilitate the process of USGS and EPA defining catchment basins for those watersheds.
Send a letter of interest and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with “ADEC Internship Application” in the subject line. Students must be enrolled in an Alaskan institute of higher education to qualify. Stipend is $5000. The internship is to take place in Juneau, but may possibly be moved to Anchorage if necessary. Open until filled, but applications received by April 30 will receive first consideration. Any questions about the position please direct to Drew Grant at (907) 465-5304.
