AGU’s Public Affairs department is looking for a summer intern. This is an opportunity for undergraduates, graduate students, and recent grads to learn more about the intersection of public policy and Earth and space science. Tell a friend, tell a student, or apply yourself!

The American Geophysical Union (AGU)Public Affairs department maintains a continuous flow of information between AGU scientists and Capitol Hill. The department advocates on behalf of Earth and space science as related policy evolves in Congress. The Public Affairs intern will work closely with Public Affairs and Outreach staff. This internship provides an opportunity to learn about the public policy process first-hand and to gain knowledge about Earth and space science policy issues, including climate change and natural hazards.

The intern will attend congressional hearings and briefings that relate to Earth and space science policy and write summaries for the AGU website and other publications. The intern will also assist with AGU members’ congressional visits and with organizing congressional briefings and receptions. The internship also includes social media outreach, authoring articles for AGU’s weekly membership newsletter Eos, and administrative tasks, as assigned. This is a paid internship.

Good research and organizational skills are a must. Coursework related to Earth or space science, political science, and communications are a plus.
