The Ohio EPA internship postings for 2015 are now available at: http://agency.governmentjobs.com/ohio/default.cfm?clearSearch=1. Students will be able to apply for the positions from now until February 13th. Please forward this information to students that you think may be interested in the positions.
Each year Ohio EPA hires nearly 70 college interns for summer work, with over 55 receiving positions within the Division of Surface Water. Students receiving internships are able to apply classroom knowledge in a real world setting and develop skills suitable for careers in natural resources, environmental stewardship, academia, biology, chemistry, ecology, water resources, fisheries, wildlife, botany, zoology, and engineering. Specific activities that interns may be involved include water quality sampling, wetland research, electrofishing surveys, macroinvertebrate sampling, stormwater inspections and water quality modeling.
