We are partnering with the Rural Alaska Honors Institute (https://www.uaf.edu/rahi/) to get rural high school students into university-level education. This is a great opportunity - we are looking to hire two students to work all summer studying plant population and community recovery after fires. You'll gain experience working with scientists in the field - not just plants, but also permafrost scientists, computer modelers, and soil scientists working on bacterial populations. There's room to design your own project to take back to your village as well.
The position will run from late May to August, 2018. Positions for 2019 will be made available next year.
If you're interested, contact Brian Buma (firstname.lastname@example.org). However, many will be familiar with Denise Wartes, who recruits for RAHI - she's going to be contacting high schools from Kake to Akiak.
