The 2013 DataONE Summer Internship Program is now open for applications. The Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is a virtual organization dedicated to providing open, persistent, robust, and secure access to biodiversity and environmental data, supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation. UCSB is a DataONE partner.
DataONE summer research internships are available for undergraduates, graduate students and recent postgraduates. Up to eight interns will be accepted in 2013, each paired with one primary mentor and, in some cases, secondary and tertiary mentors. Mentors include, but are not limited to, experts from NCEAS. Interns need not necessarily be at the same location or institution as their mentor(s). Interns and mentors are expected to have a face-to-face meeting at the beginning of the summer, and interns are encouraged to attend the DataONE All-Hands Meeting in the fall to present the results of their work. DataONE will pay all necessary travel expenses.
Application deadline is March 17
