Paid internship opportunity with Boeing with the Environmental Remediation team in Puget Sound

We have a paid summer intern position in the Seattle, Washington area. This internship is with the Environmental Remediation group at Boeing. The position is best suited for a graduate student or senior intending to go on to graduate school, but we will also consider other students who are at least a junior as well. The start and duration of the internship is flexible, however we like to keep them for as long as possible to give them the most possible exposure. The intern will have the opportunity to work in the field and office, as well as attend meetings with the regulatory agencies, contractors and consultants. More information is available in the description on the Boeing web site

The position requisition number is 14-1000721. It is listed as Intern – Environmental Remediation in the Interns and grads section of the Boeing website. . Interested students can post their resume through this website. The closing date for this is 2/5/2014. Their resume should include previous work experience, especially if related to environmental remediation. They should also include coursework related to environmental remediation such as hydrogeology, hydrology, environmental policy and regulations, and field work involving soil or water sampling.

I anticipate we will interview select candidates in Mid March.
