Interns - Past & Present

Local college students are recruited for internships and Federal Work Study positions, providing them with valuable work experience in the scientific field. Responsibilities typically include sample analysis and data management. We try to match the skills and interest of our students to the job assignments, for example lab analysis, GIS, or statistics.
