The world's largest organization of Earth and space scientists—the American Geophysical Union (AGU)—has several paid Internship Opportunities this summer and fall, beginning on 2 June 2014 at AGU's headquarters in Washington, D.C. AGU publishes 20 scientific journals and runs several scientific meetings; the largest of them, the annual Fall Meeting in San Francisco, draws more than 20,000 participants.

Climate change, natural hazards, and resource scarcity challenges are increasing and becoming more frequent at an unprecedented pace. These challenges have global impact from a societal and economic perspective, and we face tough choices to sustain our natural resources and to adapt to the impacts resulting from climate change and natural hazards. The AGU works to engage scientists, shape policy, and to inform society about the role of the Earth and space sciences in developing solutions for the sustainability of the planet.

Paid internships are available in the following AGU business areas and primarily vary in terms of internship duration and qualifications required:

•           Development/Sponsorship

•           Public Information

•           News Publications

This is an exciting time to be working at the American Geophysical Union (AGU). We are an international scientific association whose core strength is our 62,000 scientist members from over 138 countries. Established in 1919 as a committee within the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, AGU was independently incorporated in 1972. The research conducted by our members encompasses everything from the exploration of natural resources, disasters, and natural hazards to the exploration of the planets, to studies of the structure and chemical composition of the Earth’s deep interior and oceans, and to understanding the Earth’s atmosphere and the causes of climate change. These are not only exciting scientific topics; they are also of great relevance to society, industry, and public policy.

Most of our internships are scheduled to start on 2 June 2014 and range in duration from three to six months. You will coordinate with your manager on the first day to establish a set work schedule. Vacation plans may be accommodated during the internship period.
