Good morning,


My name is Madison Murphy and I am the Center Lead of the Marshall Space Flight Center node of the NASA DEVELOP Program. I have CC’ed our Communications Fellow, Kathrene Garcia. Our application for the upcoming summer 2019 term of the program recently opened and will remain open until Friday, March 1stThe term will take place June 3 – August 9, 2019. I have attached a flyer with information about our program if you’d like to disseminate it to students and faculty.


To provide some background information, NASA DEVELOP is under the Capacity Building Program within NASA’s Applied Sciences Program. NASA DEVELOP conducts feasibility research projects which use NASA satellite data to answer current environmental questions for our partner organizations, while providing opportunities for professional and personal growth for our participants. Each year we have three "terms" that consist of 10 intense weeks of research and analysis that is conducted by a team of current students (undergraduate or graduate), recent graduates (undergraduate or graduate), and early/transitioning career professionals. Teams partner with professional organizations (Nature conservancy, FEMA, Dauphin Island Sea Lab, National Park Service) offering unique opportunities for networking with these partners as well as with NASA scientists and advisors. Projects fall into one or two of the eight National Application areas, and are team led providing participants the opportunity to grow their leadership, professional, and technical skill sets. Many focuses of study can benefit from the program as they cultivate professional skills while they learn how to use GIS and remote sensing techniques. In the past we have had successful applicants from a number of fields, such asGeography, History, Biology, Computer Science, Earth System Science, and Political Science.


To give you some examples of past projects:


We have multiple projects proposed for the summer, all of which can be found on the apply page, and again we would love to have students from the University of Alaska system apply. This is a paid position and the application will be open until Friday March 1st.


If you have any questions, or have any students who may be interested in this opportunity, please feel free to contact me at or Kathrene at


Thank you for sharing this opportunity with your network!

Summer job opportunity in Denali, Alaska

Camp Denali and North Face Lodge in Denali National Park, Alaska are looking for skilled and experienced Naturalist Guides for the summer of 2019.

Our naturalist guides are teachers of experiential learning, backcountry hiking guides, and competent drivers.  Guides are responsible for: leading lodge guests into the trail-less backcountry of Denali National Park on day hikes; using creative teaching techniques to expand the guests’ knowledge of Alaskan ecosystems and to encourage land stewardship; and safely transporting people over the unpaved, mountainous park road.  The position is usually combined with positions in other departments depending on company needs.

Current WFR and CPR certifications and a solid academic background in the natural sciences or education are required (MS preferred).   Experience in arctic/sub-arctic or alpine regions is desired.  This is a rewarding and challenging position, set in an unparalleled location, among an interesting, committed, and conservation-minded community of staff.  For over 60 years, Camp Denali and North Face Lodge have been family-owned and -operated lodges with a reputation for excellence. We seek to offer the highest quality experience for visitors who venture out with our diverse and qualified staff of naturalists.  This is not your average job in Denali.

Interviews begin in December 2018 and will continue through January as needed until the positions are filled. For more information including a complete job announcement, or to apply, please see the employment page at or contact
