Occupational Health paid summer internship apps due Feb 15–10 cities!

This will be the sixteenth year of our very successful summer program that
is designed as a field-based learning experience in occupational safety and
health. Teams of two students are placed with labor unions or
community-based organizations to work on projects that investigate
job-related health and safety issues among workers, often of new immigrant
groups, employed in an under-served or a high hazard job. Supervision and
mentorship are provided by senior occupational health researchers and
interns’ host organizations.

This year, students can apply to work in any of the following cities:
Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, Hartford (CT),
Cincinnati (OH), Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco Bay Area and Los
Angeles.

*The deadline to apply is February 15, 2019.*

The program is open both to undergraduates (3rd and 4th year) and graduate
students with an interest in occupational health or related fields. (All
disciplines are encouraged to apply… interns come from many backgrounds.)
A stipend is provided for the 9-week experience ($4,000 for undergraduates,
$5,200 for graduates) to help cover housing costs since housing is not
provided.

More information about the program, and how to apply, can be obtained at
the OHIP website: www.OHIPintern.org
