Cooperative Education & Internship Program – USDA STEC CAP Internship Program
New Mexico State University Career Services in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture is assisting with providing information on the Minority Serving Institution (MSI) Internship Program for the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture STEC CAP grant. This grant supports understanding and controlling “Shiga-toxigenic Escherichia coli” (STEC) throughout the beef and veal system The long-term goal of the STEC CAP is to reduce the occurrence and public health risks due to STEC in beef and veal using a quantitative microbial risk assessment platform.
MSI-based undergraduate and graduate students can apply for summer or fall 2015 research internships at any of the 12 core STEC CAP institutions, or to work with the principal investigators at the two MSI schools funded under the current request for proposal. These internships provide students great experiential learning related to food safety and the beef/veal system, and our experts (approximately 50 associated researchers) will mentor each intern in the intricacies associated with sound scientific research to prepare each student for future graduate program responsibilities and/or industry-based employment.
This is a great opportunity for students who are majoring in Biology. For additional program information and the internship application please visit: http://www.stecbeefsafety.org/msi-program

Undergraduate Research in Evolution and Systematics at AMNH (American Museum of National History)
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, offers paid summer internships for qualified undergraduate students to conduct research projects with AMNH scientists in evolutionary biology and systematics, linked to specific individual research projects. Included in the program are a general orientation to the Museum and a series of weekly meetings at which students discuss their research, present informal progress reports, and participate in discussions and seminars as well as graduate and research career opportunities. At the conclusion of the internships, students deliver oral presentations of their work and prepare publication quality research papers. Successful applicants will receive a stipend and dormitory housing on a nearby university campus, or an equivalent housing stipend, will be provided together with a subsistence allowance. Based on need, travel costs to and from New York City are also covered.
The Conservation and Land Management Internship Program is now accepting applications for 2015
