NPS Paid Internship

National Park Service | Chesapeake Bay Office
Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
Summer 2010 Project Assistant Internship Opportunity

The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking a graduate student during summer 2010 to serve as project assistant to the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail at the National Park Service’s Chesapeake Bay Office, located in Annapolis.

The Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail was designated by Congress in 2008 to commemorate the Chesapeake Campaign of the War of 1812 in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Currently in its conceptual stages, the 290-mile land and water trail network, when completed, will connect sites and landscapes where people can learn about and reflect on the causes, events and outcomes of the War of 1812 through recreation and learning experiences that the NPS develops in partnership with existing parks, historic sites, byways and trails. The NPS has begun coordinating the development of a management plan that will help coordinate the efforts of federal, state, and local governments, nonprofits, and residents as the War of 1812 Bicentennial approaches, to preserve and interpret Trail resources and provide opportunities for learning, recreation, and understanding of the Chesapeake’s history and culture.

As development of the Star-Spangled Banner NHT management plan continues this summer, duties will include compiling information on the resources, sites, segments and landscapes associated with the War of 1812 in Maryland, Virginia and DC; collecting information on related local planning, zoning, and transportation efforts relevant to significant landscapes and shorelines; developing information and orientation materials; and coordinating meeting logistics associated with management planning. The internship includes regular communications with partners and the public through social media, website updates, information-sharing, following up on project and partner leads, and participation at events promoting the Trail.

The intern will also assist as needed with related NPS projects along the Captain John Smith Cheasapeake NHT and through the Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network.

This position requires a student with demonstrated skills in research and documentation and verbal and written communications. An ideal candidate is personable, detail-oriented, self-motivated and has excellent organizational skills. An interest in and/or familiarity with parks and trails planning and policy, heritage and recreation-based tourism, and interpretation is beneficial.

Compensation is $15/hour, 30-40 hours/week, up to 600 hours. The internship may be extended on a part-time basis into the fall semester.

Email your resume, a cover letter, and a writing sample to: Suzanne Copping, Star-Spangled Banner NHT Project Manager

Nick Fry working for NASA Center for Aerospace Information

History B.A. and Historical Studies M.A. Nick Fry writes:
I got a second Masters degree in Library and Information Science
from Drexel University in 2008. Since 2007 I have been an
Outreach Specialist at the NASA Center for AeroSpace Information
(CASI) in Hanover, MD. My job involves research, technical
assistance, marketing and communications skills as I help NASA
researchers, contractors, grantees and the general public find
the scientific and technical publications they are seeking. I'm
also our liaison with the NASA History Office at NASA
Headquarters in Washington, DC. It's one of the best jobs for
anyone who appreciates history to have. I'm right next to our
archive and as part of my regular duties I have to go to the
NASA centers for outreach and training activities related to our
database. This has allowed me to go in one of the buildings
that housed Von Braun's rocket team at Marshall Space Flight
Center, stand at the Flight Director's console at Apollo Era
Mission Control at Johnson Space Center, and see artifacts from
America's early age of aeronautics research at Langley Research
Center. The research, analysis and communication skills I
learned as an undergraduate and graduate student in history at
UMBC have helped me get to this point. It's been quite a ride.
