2017 NCBO Summer Internships Announced

The NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office will again offer students opportunities to explore career paths and gain experience in Chesapeake Bay-related sciences through summer internships in 2017.

These paid internships will each run roughly 12 weeks, from mid-May through mid-August. Undergraduates may apply for all three internships; graduate students are also welcome to apply for the hydrology/GIS internship. Internships are a great way to contribute to the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office’s work toward protecting and restoring the Bay.

Two of the internships are based in the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office’s Annapolis, Maryland, office:

  • Field technician intern, including supporting the Office’s habitat assessment and fisheries work; preparing for and assisting with a project sampling fish utilization of oyster reefs
  • Spatial ecology technician intern, using basic GIS tools to assess habitat at fish sampling sites related to oyster reefs; includes some field work

NCBO will also offer an internship in partnership with the NOAA Mid-Atlantic River Forecast Center based in State College, Pennsylvania:

These internships are offered in partnership with the Chesapeake Research Consortium.

Applications require a cover letter, resume, and two references, and are due by February 20, 2017. Get more information and apply today! With questions, contact  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
