Students in the School of Life Sciences looking toward careers in wildlife biology or management take note of a new opportunity: Paid summer internships with the Arizona Game and Fish (AGF) department in 2016.
AGF manages Arizona’s fish and wildlife resources, and promotes safe and responsible use of watercraft and off-highway vehicles.
Interns can expect to gain hands-on practical work experience working alongside a diverse group of AGF professionals. In the past, interns have:
- Helped with radio tracking and collecting pronghorn antelope field data,
- Conducted habitat assessments at squirrel use sites as part of a habitat selection study, and
- Learned skills in electro fishing and gill netting.
Applications are due January 22, and eligible students can apply online; however, interested students from the School of Life Sciences must first meet with Mike Demlong, the AGF department liaison to the school.
Demlong will host two special career-counseling sessions to help students meet the school's application requirement before deadline submission:
- Thursday, Jan. 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in LSC 278
- Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in LSC 278
