NASA History Division Internships – Summer Deadline February 4, 2012

NASA History Division Spring and Summer 2012 Internships

The NASA History Division is seeking undergraduate and graduate students for spring and summer 2012 internships. The History Division maintains archival materials to answer research questions from NASA personnel, journalists, scholars, students at all levels and others from around the world. The division also edits and publishes several books and monographs each year. It maintains a large number of websites on NASA history.

Students of all majors are welcome to apply. While detailed prior knowledge of the aeronautics and space fields is not necessary, a keen interest and some basic familiarity with these topics are needed. Strong research, writing and editing skills are essential. Experience with computers, especially HTML formatting, is a plus.

Intern projects are flexible. Typical projects include handling a variety of information requests, editing historical manuscripts, doing research and writing biographical sketches, updating and creating websites, and identifying and captioning photos.

Applications for spring 2012 internships are due Oct. 30, 2011. Summer 2012 internship applications are due Feb. 4, 2012.
