Job Type: Internships

Location: Varies (Seattle, WA)

Salary: $17.26 – $24.63 Hourly

SUMMARY: The King County Water and Land Resources Division of the Department of Natural Resources and Parks seeks several full-time interns for this summer. Assignments will be to one of the following areas, providing experience in the practical application of coursework in a large-scale, public sector organization.

WHO MAY APPLY: Positions are open to college level students currently enrolled and continuing in the fall 2019 in full or part-time status at an accredited university/college with coursework in the described areas. Proof of full or part-time enrollment status is required. Most positions require a valid driver’s license.

Descriptions of Internship Opportunities

1.Agriculture/Snoqualmie Valley Agricultural Land Strategic Plan Intern

In 2017, the Fish, Farm, Flood watershed planning effort identified a suite of recommended actions and three task forces that would advance the efforts focused on salmon recovery; agriculture production and preservation; and flood risk reduction within the Snoqualmie River Valley. The recommended actions included an assessment of land-based assets on farmlands in the Snoqualmie Agricultural Production District; creation of a plan for needed improvements to farmland assets; and determination of a minimum number of acres of agricultural resource lands required to preserve a viable agriculture sector. The Agriculture Intern will collect, compile and analyze existing land use data; survey farmers to collect new data; and support the project leader with meeting logistics.

2.Communications Intern

The successful candidate will work with the Communications Manager of the Water and Land Resources Division to learn communications tactics and planning functions. In addition, the intern will be exposed to and carry out inclusive communications with a goal of equitable outcomes for all residents and enhancing that aspect of our work. Prepare written articles for publication; pursue story development; coordinate photos, videos and graphics; support the development and implementation of strategic communications plans; manage social media channels; and coordinate newsletter and web page content.

3.Forestry/King County Forest Plan Intern

In response to the 2015 Strategic Climate Action Plan, King County is embarking on an effort to develop a 30-year plan to “re-tree King County.” This effort will bring together partners to “develop a sustainable 30-year plan to maintain and enhance tree cover countywide that identifies specific approaches, including public and private partnerships, geographic focus areas, and number of trees.” The Forestry Intern will focus on the first step in this process, which includes an assessment and compilation of existing information on tree cover in King County, including current tree cover, forest ownership patterns, and trends in tree cover in rural and urban areas of the county, as well as other information relevant to this planning effort and support the project leader with meeting logistics. The information will form the basis of the first chapter of the 30-Year Plan.

4.Environmental Summer Internships/Rivers and Floodplain Management

The Rivers and Floodplain Management Section of WLRD is hiring two summer interns. The position duration is approximately three months.

The internship will provide hands-on experience with many aspects of managing a flood risk reduction project. This internship will include a mix of field work and office work. The intern will assist engineers and planners with site observation and documentation on a construction site and compile data. The intern may also assist staff with project management duties such as updating project web pages, preparing graphics, and digitizing information. You must be able to commit to working 30-40 hours per week during the entire period to be eligible.

5.Microbiology/Aquatic Toxicology Intern

Students will learn existing analytical testing methods for common environmental pathogens (microbiology and algal toxins) found in current King county monitoring programs. In the microbiology laboratory the student will learn core microbiology techniques to isolate and identify bacteria from environmental matrices. The student will learn how to make culture media used to separate and identify the target organisms of interest. In the aquatic toxicology laboratory the student will learn freshwater algae identification skills with a focus on toxin producing types. The student will be trained in the operation of FlowCAM® digital imaging system and image recognition software for the automated classification of freshwater algae in lake water samples. The student will learn how to perform quality control for the test methods commonly used in these monitoring programs. The student will also perform some side by side tests with experienced analysts to check their laboratory techniques.

Create better medical devices. Solve real problems.

Join us for the 3rd session of DeviceConnect.

Hello ,

Going from prototype to a viable product requires an ongoing commitment to human-centered design. This means more than just design validation, too. Truly good design is a process (not just a check mark) where the end product is based on solutions to people’s real problems, goals, and needs.

Join us and Product Creation Studio on May 8 for our 3rd session of DeviceConnect titled, “Changing Healthcare Delivery through Human-Centered Design.”

Our panel of experts will explore:

  • How to close the healthcare gap by sharing our devices with stakeholders early and often
  • Implications of ignoring Human-Centered Design (HCD) in the development process
  • Making the business case for HCD (it’s not just an FDA requirement)

All our best,
– Life Science Washington Team.

North Idaho wildlife center needs help

In the immortal words of the Beatles:

HELP

We need somebody.

HELP

Not just anybody.

HELP – please

That’s right, we need some help and fast! As you are all aware, each year we contact local universities and post the spring/summer internship position seeking someone to provide wild animal care for the nongame mammals, birds and reptiles in need. We chose a candidate but sadly, due to a “devastating family situation”, this person will not be arriving in three weeks as was arranged.

If you have ever thought it would be rewarding to help local wildlife in need. Call us.

If you enjoy time in nature, and talking about the wildlife you see, we need you.

If you travel to Sandpoint several times each week, we need you.

I am currently scheduling the orientation and training sessions. Sign up! Seeking volunteers (yes fuel reimbursement may be available) to help with wild animal care, nature path guide, animal taxi, education and outreach.

American Heritage Wildlife Foundation is 100% community supported, this means we operate exclusively with volunteers and donated funds. Last year over 4,000 hours were recorded and around 100 animals were given aid.

Without someone here to respond to the telephone calls, feed the nestling birds, make sure the milk replacer formula is fresh, clean the enclosures, do the laundry, put away the dishes, attend the public outreach events, offer educational programs, and more… we cannot continue.

We expect the volunteers to be mature, dedicated, trustworthy, and committed. We take the responsibility to this community and the wildlife we serve very seriously and expect the same from the volunteers. If you are this person, I want to meet you.

Phone calls for wild animals in need have already begun.

Poster, Program Description and Itinerary attached.

Comparative Urban Studies–US and Quebec/Canada: A Study Abroad Course

Instructors: Fritz Wagner and Regent Cabana

Credits: 3-6

Maximum Number of students: 15

When: Summer A Term, Larch 495A and URBDP 498C/598C

Audience: Students in the UW College of Built Environments (CBE), Canadian Studies, other departments in the university and departments at UW Tacoma and UW Bothell.

Course Description: Comparative research in urban studies has been a major development in the last decade but little has been done to provide US students with a comprehensive knowledge of Québec cities and how they compare with US cities.

The aim of the course is to introduce students to theoretical and methodological aspects of comparative urban research by providing on-site case studies of Québec cities.

The estimated cost of the trip for each student, including airfare, meals, lodging and ground transportation is $1,500. The course is open to Juniors and Seniors, as well as Graduate students, for three to six hours credits.

We will visit three Quebec cities – Montréal, Québec City and Ottawa, where a number of professors, government officials and other urban experts will give lectures and tours. The course will examine similarities and differences between U.S. and Québec cities. We will look more particularly at current urban issues confronting communities in Québec. We will study the physical layout of cities, urban design and urban growth, problems related to the environment, governmental institutions, as well as historical, social and cultural factors specific to Quebec cities.

Students will write a paper on a topic related to urban issues encountered in Québec. The course introduces the logic of comparative research in the social sciences and applies its theory and methodology to the study of Québec cities, as compared to US cities. Its multidisciplinary and comparative character develops the ability to interpret and understand urban changes, changing demographics and to analyze appropriate and sustainable strategies and policies to address urban problems in Québec and the US. Students will gain a better understanding of economic, political, social, and cultural differences between Québec and the US. The course will also help them better understand the diversity of the contemporary urban world in Québec and the US and the importance of the social-cultural factors specific to each region and city, in finding solutions to common urban problems. By the end of the course, students are expected to be conversant in cross-border urban issues in Québec and the US.

Requirements: Students are expected to keep a daily journal on the things they have seen and learned. In addition, a term paper is required that focuses on some aspect of comparison with a subject with the United States. The 6 credit term paper would be a longer version of the 3 credit paper. The topic should be discussed with the instructors.
