Summer 2018 Global Engagement Opportunity

Check out this 3-week practicum/internship experience in sustainable development at the Comprehensive Rural Health Project (CRHP) in Jamked, India!

Students majoring in Global and Public Health, Human Services/Social Work, Anthropology, Sociology, and Women and Gender Studies are encouraged to apply. The course will begin on July 10, 2018 and conclude on July 30, 2018.

The Comprehensive Rural Health Project (CRHP) in Jamkhed, Maharashtra, India, has been working among the rural poor and marginalized for over 40 years. By partnering with village communities and expanding upon local knowledge and resources, CRHP aims to effectively meet the immediate and long-term needs of these groups, especially women. With values of compassion, justice, respect, and trust, CRHP works to empower people, families, and communities regardless of caste, race, or religion through integrated efforts in health and development. CRHP was one of the first programs to utilize Village Health Workers (VHWs), local women trained in basic healthcare and community development, a highly successful public health approach that has been emulated worldwide. The work of CRHP has been recognized by the WHO and UNICEF, and has been introduced to countries across the world.

CRHP provides a field experience designed to orient students to various areas of global public health work (community-based participatory practice, maternal and child health, sanitation, environmental health, communicable and non-communicable diseases, rural development, etc.) through observation and practice. Student learning will be further guided and enhanced through field experiences, readings, as well as discussions/seminars. The goal of this practicum is to provide the student with an overview of public health work in a cross cultural, global setting and an exposure to a wide range of experiences in the field. The practicum serves to integrate course work from the students’ home institution with active learning experiences at CRHP. The fee of $1700 covers all living expenses, transportation, and excursions in India and is due by May 1, 2018.

To apply, please email your resume and contact information for two academic referecnes to info@jamkhed.org, indicating why the practicum at CRHP is of interest to you. Students will be accepted until the course is full.

DEADLINE 2/15-Seabird Research Intern on Maine Coastal Islands

DEADLINE Thursday FEBRUARY 15, 2018

This internship is jointly funded by the Center for Careers and Internships and Environmental Affairs. We have been funding this opportunity for many years.

Location:  Southern and mid-coast Maine at an island field camp

Compensation:  $350/week with food provided.  Shared housing provided when on the mainland; camping is required at Island field sites. 


Position Description:
Audubon’s Seabird Restoration Program operates seven island field stations along the Maine coast as critical seabird nesting sanctuaries. Research Interns will work under the direction of the Island Supervisor, participating in all aspects of seabird research, monitoring, and management that take place at the field station. The majority of research projects focus on studying the nesting success and foods fed to seabird  chicks,most work focuses on terns, but depending of field site, other species studied may include:  guillemots, puffins, and or razorbills. with most work focusing on terns. Work includes, but is not limited to: conducting population censuses, monitoring productivity and chick growth; conducting seabird diet studies; banding and re-sighting birds; removing invasive vegetation; educating island visitors; and assisting with predator management.

Research Interns will live on island (a single island or group of islands) for the duration of the field season. Interns assigned to inshore islands will have occasional trips to the mainland for logistics and resupplying the field camp, returning to the islands to work and sleep. On offshore islands, food, supplies, and mail are delivered approximately every 2 weeks. Research Interns on off shore islands will remain offshore for approximately eleven weeks. In a tern colony, the birds are loud, and in defense of their nests, terns will dive-bomb anyone moving through the colony. Living conditions on the islands are rustic. A cabin or wall tent serves as the base of field operations, and field team members sleep in their own tents (wooden tent platforms provided). Island field stations have limited electricity (solar panels power research needs), propane stoves, composting toilets, and no running water (rainwater is collected for washing; drinking water is brought from the mainland). Communications with the mainland are via cell or VOIP phone, depending on location, with VHF radios available as a back-up mode of communication. There is no internet access. Cooking, cleaning, and camp maintenance duties are shared by all island team members.
