    World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks applicants for a paid Northern Great Plains Science/GIS Internship for summer 2018.

     

    This position is based in Bozeman, MT.

     

    The internship position is an opportunity for a college or post-graduate student to work one-on-one with a GIS specialist and Program officer in World Wildlife Fund’s Northern Great Plains program.

In the position, the intern will assist or lead in science research and spatial analysis and cartographic projects such as, but not limited to, digitizing data from electronic or paper images, developing and organizing spatial data and databases, creating cartographic products and images for reports, publications, and presentations, and contributing to report-writing. The intern will work on WWF’s Sustainable Ranching Initiative along with other analyses and research projects.

     

    The internship will last approximately one college semester (Summer 2018), ideally starting end May/beginning June, with some flexibility in start and end dates. The position can be in Bozeman, MT, Sioux Falls, SD or remote (anywhere within the U.S.) where suitable access to GIS software is available.
