Description

The MSGC Balloon Outreach, Research, Exploration And Landscape Imaging System (BOREALIS) Internship is available to full-time undergraduate students enrolled at an affiliated Montana Space Grant Consortium campus. You must be a U.S. citizen to be eligible for this internship. As an intern, you will work in a mission-like team environment where you will be encouraged and mentored to design, develop and deploy experiments to the edge of space (100,000 feet). You will receive training and hands-on experience in using upper level wind forecasts for flight track predictions, balloon inflation and launch, and the use of tracking systems for recovery of the experimental payloads. Additional opportunities include training in computer programming and modeling of wind forecasts and simulations. In addition to standard internships, the BOREALIS program also offers peer-leader internship positions. Peer-leader interns have all the responsibilities and opportunities of a standard internship, plus additional duties related to peer mentoring, project management and research support. Peer-leader positions offer a higher pay rate to compensate for additional responsibilities. This internship is located in Montana during the summer.
