NASA Opens Application Window for Paid CubeSat, PICetSat Internships

01/20/2015

The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) seeks applicants to fill paid CubeSat and PICetSat-related internships for a 10-week Summer 2015 term. These positions may be of interest to Amateur Radio licensees pursuing degrees in electrical or computer engineering and now in their junior or senior years. Applications are being taken on the NASA One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) recruiting website. The openings are CubeSat Simulator Upgrade Plus — advertised previously but now reopened — as well as CubeSat Ground Station Development, and PICetSat Module and PCB Development. Other internship opportunities are available at each of the other 10 NASA field center locations as well, said Pat Kilroy, N8PK, of GSFC. The official application deadline is March 1, but Kilroy is hoping applications will be submitted sooner.

 

“The word to the wise student is to get one's application in ASAP — and certainly within the next 3 weeks,” Kilroy said. Applications from Amateur Radio licensees should include a call sign.

Details on each internship are available through the OSSI page. Contact Pat Kilroy for more information. Applications must be submitted via the OSSI web page.
