Paid Research Opportunity with NASA DEVELOP

Posted on: June 13th, 2022 in: National NASA

The University of Wyoming will be hosting a NASA DEVELOP pop-up node this fall semester and applications are being accepted from students and early career professionals from across the country.  

This is a 10-week paid research opportunity with the NASA DEVELOP National Program. NASA DEVELOP projects focus on helping local, national, and international communities address their environmental concerns while utilizing NASA’s Earth observing fleet of satellites. This is a great opportunity for participants who are interested in practical applications of remote sensing and GIS, specifically in the field of Earth Science. Participants will work with NASA scientists, partner organizations, and science advisors to learn about the use of NASA Earth science data for use in water resources, disaster management, ecological forecasting, and other applications to address environmental community concerns.

Responsibilities will include: literature review, data processing and analysis, and producing deliverables, such as a technical report, presentation, and video. Previous GIS or remote sensing knowledge, while beneficial, is not required for acceptance. This is a multi-disciplinary opportunity for all those interested in Earth science and we encourage those in the social sciences, general science, engineering, computer science, etc. to apply.

Applicants must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to work in a fast-paced, highly collaborative environment. Days of the week are flexible, but applicants should be able to commit to 20 – 29 hours per week during the term. The position is paid on an hourly basis that is determined by education level.

The Fall 2022 term will run from Sep 12 – Nov 18. Applications are being accepted through June 24th.
