GeoCorps™ America


Hunting down dinosaur tracks at Denali National Park; guiding visitors through a cave at Craters of the Moon National Monument; mapping springs in the Medicine Bow National Forest—do these sound like your idea of a great summer job? If so, check out the nearly 100 different paid, short-term geoscience positions offered during the summer of 2012 by the Geological Society of America’s “GeoCorps™ America” program.


GeoCorps™ positions take place within America’s amazing public lands, at sites managed by the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management. Positions generally last for 12 weeks (sometimes longer), and occur primarily during the summer, although some take place at other times of the year. Each position offers a $2,750 stipend, free housing (or a housing allowance), and in some cases, a travel allowance. Qualifications vary by position, and all levels of geoscientists, from undergraduates to retired professionals, are encouraged to apply.
