Science Communication internships 2017

Mar 22, 2017

Applications for this internship are now closed

Are you interested in space, design, or visualisation? We are running a  6-8 week, paid internship programme during July and August 2017 for undergraduate students. We are looking for students to work with the Las Cumbres Observatory education team to create tools for science communication, related to astronomy and robotic telescopes. This ‘tool’ can be a physical object, a website, a game, a book, or something else. We will use these tools in exhibitions, school workshops, teacher training and other science communication events across the world.

You don’t have to have a maths, astronomy or physics background to apply, but ideas and a creative spirit are essential.

Project: Create a tool for use in science communication in astronomy

Who: We welcome applications from artists, designers, computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers, physicists, engineers, anyone who has experience or interest in creating tools for science communication.

Where: Cardiff University, School of Physics & Astronomy, UK

Desirable skills (one or more of these would be perfect): Web design, graphic design, science communication, hardware design, Python, pyGame, Phaser.IO, Blender, Unity. programming.

Deadline for applications: 1 May 2017, 5pm BST
