GeoCorps Positions Now Available for Summer 2014!
Interested in doing geoscience in some of America’s most beautiful public lands?
The Geological Society of America (GSA) has posted nearly 100 new GeoCorps America positions for summer 2014 on the GeoCorps website! Applications can be submitted online from now through February 18, 2014 (noon, MST). [Note: This deadline has been extended from what was previously advertised.]
Once again, GeoCorps features paid geoscience projects in some of America’s most amazing public lands, which are managed by our partner agencies—the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Forest Service. This round of projects features some of the nation’s premier public lands, such as Craters of the Moon National Monument (ID), Grand Canyon National Park (AZ), Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (UT), and the Tongass National Forest (AK). It also includes some extremely remote, wild places, like Denali National Park (AK), as well as sites closer to an urban setting, such as Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (PA). GeoCorps project areas cover a broad range of subjects, including geology, hydrology, paleontology, mapping , GIS (Geographic Information Systems), geo-hazards, education, and interpretation. There are even positions relating to astronomy and archaeology this season.
These temporary, paid opportunities provide on-the-ground geoscience experience and include a stipend of $2,750 (or more), free housing (or a housing allowance), and in many cases, a travel allowance.
Geoscientists of all levels are eligible to apply. This includes, but is not limited to, undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, professionals, faculty members, teachers, and retirees. Past GeoCorps participants are eligible to apply for “Guest Scientist” positions and “GeoCorps Diversity Internships.”
The GeoCorps website’s online application system is now open to receive applications, so get started on yours today! The final application deadline is February 18, 2014 (noon, MST). Apply here: www.geosociety.org/geocorps.
