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:
- Improving and extending MetPy or Siphon — Unidata's open-source Python toolkits for meteorology and data access
- Enhancing Unidata-supported scientific analysis and visualization software products, including the IDV and AWIPS.
- Investigating the impact of data localization, enabled by cloud technologies, using the THREDDS Data Server (TDS) with Siphon and MetPy via Unidata's JupyterHub instance
- Using Unidata tools to generate products for use by the larger Unidata community, for example by developing and documenting a library of IDV bundles.
- Developing your own new ideas to benefit the Unidata community.
The internship will run from 22 May to 4 August 2017. You must currently be enrolled as a 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.
