Do you like science and love to write?
We are currently accepting applications for our summer 2008 internship. The intern
will work as a member of the Geotimes staff: writing for the News Notes section
and other parts of the magazine, writing weekly Web Extras for Geotimes online, attending press briefings and science seminars in Washington, D.C.,
and helping to edit and produce the magazine for print and Web.
Based at the American Geological Institute in Alexandria, Va., the internship
is 12 weeks long and includes a $3,500 stipend. Starting time is flexible. All
applications should be received by March 31, 2008. A background in the
geosciences is a plus. Send a résumé, letter describing what you
