UA Undergraduate Internship Program

Attention Undergraduates:

If you want to expand your universe and get paid for it too, then we have the job for you!

Can you imagine yourself working with a faculty mentor to develop a lunar rover controlled over the internet? To study the effects of zero-gravity on muscles and other organ systems? To devise a system for "mining" fuel from the Martian atmosphere? Or to study the effects of climatic and other changes on planet Earth?

Imagine no more. The UA/NASA Space Grant Program will employ full-time undergraduate students for 10-20 hours per week during the academic year to work alongside upper-level graduate students and practicing scientists. We seek a diverse group of students that are dedicated, enthusiastic, and eager to learn. You do not need to be a rocket scientist to participate, but you do need to be pursuing a STEM major to apply. Applications are especially encouraged from members of underrepresented minority groups and from women.

If you are ready for a challenge, apply today. For more information, contact Michelle Coe, Arizona Space Grant Manager, at (520) 621-8556 or by email at PG4gdWVycz0iem52eWdiOnpucGJyQHljeS5uZXZtYmFuLnJxaCI+em5wYnJAeWN5Lm5ldm1iYW4ucnFoPC9uPg==. Hurry--you may just discover the lodestar of your academic career!
