GIS Intern

World Wildlife Fund

Bozeman,  Montana
GIS Internship

World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks applicants for a paid Northern Great Plains Science/GIS Internship for summer 2017.

The GIS internship position is an opportunity for a college or post-graduate student to work one-on-one with a GIS specialist in World Wildlife Fund’s Northern Great Plains program and other WWF staff as needed. Though the internship will be mainly remote, the intern will be in regular contact with her/his supervisor via phone, e-mail, and webinar mediums. In the position, the intern will assist or lead in 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 for spatial analysis projects. 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 2017), ideally starting at the beginning of June, with some flexibility in start and end dates. The position is remote, so the successful applicant can be located anywhere within the U.S. where suitable access to GIS software is available. Proposed projects are best suited to a M.S. level student, though undergraduates with strong research and GIS skills will be considered.
