Natural Resources Internship Programme

The Mountain Studies Institute, as part of the San Juan Collaboratory, announces its fourth year of the Natural Resources Internship Programme.

This is a paid 10-week opportunity to live and work in the beautiful San Juan Mountain Region of Southwest Colorado. The internship is open to students and recent graduates, and is an excellent career-building experience for those interested in research and management of natural resources. There are multiple positions, ranging from the field of hydrology to community energy efficiency to water quality monitoring. Many previous interns have continued on to graduate school or have been hired through connections made at their internship. Internship dates are June 6 - August 12, and the application deadline is March 30. More information and the application form can be found at:

Potential interns should be college juniors, seniors, or recent graduates with a background or strong interest in environmental science, natural resource management, ecology, hydrology, water resources, or related field. Most positions require a willingness to work in a field setting, with a potential for difficult hiking, challenging weather conditions or high-elevations. Interns should be able to work both independently and as part of a team, have good communication skills, and a positive attitude. For more information please see the attached pdf.
