If you have an interest in the ecology of big rivers, the workings of watersheds that feed them or the ties to the river communities that use them then the available internships with the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center may be of interest to you. The NGRREC is currently looking for qualified candidates to fill several 10-week, paid, summer internships.

NGRREC staff member Ted Kratschmer started his career as an intern and says they have several opportunities for you if you meet certain criteria.

Kratschmer says each internship is managed by a faculty member who provides instruction, supervision and design of the internship. Students receive a $4,000 stipend for the 10-week program, which includes traveling to a specific site to conduct research and concludes with a two-day symposium.
