Dartmouth-McGill Arctic Research

About the Internship

Are you interested in Arctic science but unsure which field you find the most interesting? Here is your chance to learn more about the range of topics that Arctic scientists explore while contributing to an Arctic science study. Researchers at Dartmouth College and McGill University in Canada have teamed up to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of literature to identify key areas and topics of Arctic research in North America. We are looking for a remote intern who will work with us to systematically screen the literature and extract key information following a standardized process.  By the end of the internship you will have experience conducting scientific literature reviews. You will also be offered the opportunity to co-author an article for publication in a peer reviewed international journal. Remote internship will be with Professor Gordon Hickey and Dr. Ashlee-Ann Pigford of the Sustainable Futures Laboratory at McGill in collaboration with Dr. Melody Brown Burkins of Dartmouth.
