Currently, we are seeking an alumni of the program to serve as the next Alumni Mentor for the program. This alumnus, a student advanced in a PhD program, will provide general support and assist instructionally during the orientation week. Throughout the following summer and fall the Alumni Mentor will monitor intern blogs and our Facebook group to offer technical suggestions to individual research and also pose thoughtful and challenging questions that help ensure interns continue to make progress with their research through the summer.
The Alumni Mentor will receive a stipend of $2000/year, full travel support to attend the internship orientation as well as partial funding to attend the annual Fall AGU meeting.
If you are interested in learning more about the alumni mentor position, please contact Rob Porritt (rob at seismo.berkeley.edu) or Michael Hubenthal (hubenth @ iris.edu) for more information or to express your interest in the position.
