Promote safety programs across tribal lands as the Communication Specialist & Geospatial Analyst Intern. As part of Sealaska’s Managed Business Solutions (MBS) team, you will learn key components of a federal dam safety program and develop your communications skills while working on hands-on projects. Active and accurate communications are critical to this program. The intern would learn about the dam safety systems in place and coordinate with MBS and tribal staff across the country to update communications directories, post accurate information on websites, or assist with database management. In addition, if conditions allow, the intern would visit one or more reservations with a dam in the BIA dam safety program to meet local staff and see how the monitoring equipment is implemented in the field. If the intern has an engineering background, more technical projects will be available. Project specifics can be tailored to the interests of the intern within the constraints of the program.
This internship can take place remotely via telecommute, with the option to travel to project locations.
