SPS Career Pathways
In light of the need to increase both the size and diversity of our nation's STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) workforce, the National Science Foundation has awarded the Education and Statistical Research Divisions of the American Institute of Physics a grant to learn and share effective practices for the preparation of physics undergraduates for STEM careers. One aspect of this is to develop a workshop on career preparation for undergraduate physics students. This intern will be an integral part of workshop development (e.g. assembling resume-writing materials, developing mock job interview scenarios, and generating graphic representations of statistical information on the careers of physics undergraduates).
• Completion of at least two years of college physics
• Interest in non-traditional STEM careers
• Ability to multi-task and manage time efficiently
• Strong communication skills
SPS intern positions based in Washington, DC are also available in science research, outreach, writing, and policy. See http://www.spsnational.org/programs/internships/ for details.
