2016 Lunar and Planetary Institute’s Exploration Science Summer Intern Program

2016 Lunar and Planetary Institute’s Exploration Science Summer Intern Program

The Lunar and Planetary Institute is hosting a special Exploration Science Summer Intern Program in 2016. The program is a unique opportunity to integrate scientific input with exploration activities in a way that mission architects and spacecraft engineers can use. Activities may involve assessments and traverse plans for a particular destination (e.g., on the far side of the moon) or a more general assessment of a class of possible exploration targets (e.g., small near-Earth asteroids).
The program is open to graduate students in geology, planetary science, planetary astronomy and related programs. The 10-week program runs from May 23, 2016, through July 29, 2016. Selected interns will receive stipends and travel expense reimbursement.

The deadline to submit an application is Jan. 15, 2016.
