Audubon Texas will be hiring a GIS intern that will be working out of our Texas City office. If you know of a recent graduate or student still in school, please pass along! This intern will have the opportunity to learn some very high-level, advanced GIS techniques and will be working with LiDAR Data and spatial modeling. The position runs from mid-January to mid-October 2015. As it is part time we can be flexible and work around schedules of students currently taking classes.
I’d like to find an applicant with previous GIS experience, but it’s more important to find a responsible individual that can work well with minimal supervision, has a good attitude and a willingness to learn.
The position is part time (up to 27 hours per week) and is paid. The GIS Intern will be hired to work on a spatial modeling project involving the Texas Coast. The intern will provide Geographical Information System (GIS) assistance to the Coastal Program Manager, assist with the collection of field data and ground-truthing spatial models and create final maps and GIS products. Major job responsibility will be working on Audubon Texas’ spatial modeling project for assessing rookery island erosion risk along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) in Texas. Majority of time will be spent in an office but some field work on rookery islands will be included.
