NOAA, in partnership with MPOWIR (Mentoring Physical Oceanography Women to Increase Retention), is pleased to
announce a unique internship opportunity for the summer of 2012. Two junior scientists will be chosen for
internships at AOML (Miami, FL), GFDL (Princeton, NJ) or PMEL (Seattle, WA). Interns will be integrated into an ongoing research program for a period of 8 to 10 weeks while working on a project of mutual interest with a NOAA scientist.
To be considered for this opportunity, applicants must be female scientists currently enrolled in a graduate
program at a U.S. institution and self-identify as a physical oceanographer. Funds are available for lodging and travel.
For more information and to apply, please visit http://mpowir.org/get-involved/noaa-internship/. All applications
must be received by April 20, 2012.
Also, we are currently soliciting applications for the NASA Speaker Series. Explore career opportunities at NASA,
tour the Jet Propulsion Laboratory or Goddard Space Flight Center, and present your research to NASA scientists.

Finally, MPOWIR’s annual graduate student survey is open. The survey takes about 10 minutes. Please feel free to
