Update: the application deadline for the 2019 Unidata Summer Internship program has been extended until January 25, 2019.
Do you use Unidata software packages? Do you love to write code? The Unidata Summer Internship program is looking for you!
The Unidata Summer Internship offers undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to work with Unidata software engineers and scientists on projects drawn from a wide variety of areas in the atmospheric and computational sciences. Unidata's mission is to support the Earth Science research and education community with data and tools for data access, analysis, and visualization. As a Unidata intern, you'll pursue the goal of adding innovative enhancements to data access, analysis, and visualization tools developed within Unidata.
Unidata is a great place to work. Our relaxed environment and small program size give you the opportunity to benefit from individual mentoring and to build a close working relationship with the technical staff.
Some of the projects you might work on include:
- Enhancements for Unidata's various Python projects, e.g. MetPy, Siphon, or the Jupyter Notebook Gallery
- Work to enhance Unidata supported scientific analysis and visualization software products, e.g., IDV and AWIPS
- Work to enhance Unidata scientific data access and distribution software products, e.g., THREDDS Data Server (TDS) and netCDF
- Investigate the use of scientific data access, analysis, and visualization tools in Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or other cloud environments
- Use Unidata tools to generate products for use by the Unidata community, e.g., develop and document a library of IDV bundles
- Developing your own new ideas to benefit the Unidata community.
The internship will run from 20 May to 2 August 2019. You must currently be enrolled as a sophomore, junior, or senior or in a graduate level program at a United States university to apply. For additional details, possible projects, and information on how to apply, visit the Summer Internships page.
