March 13, 2023
Student Case Study Job

The Southwest Fire and Climate Adaptation Partnership (SWFireCAP) and the Collaborative Conservation and Adaptation Strategy Toolbox (CCAST) are hiring one student intern to write case studies about fire and climate adaptation in the Southwest. This student intern, funded through an agreement between School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) and the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (SW CASC), will focus on writing case studies that will be shared through CCAST’s online library of case studies. This position is open to one undergraduate or graduate student at 20-35 hours per week during the summer 2023, with possibility of extending as a part-time position of 10-20 hours per week during the following academic year. The work involves interacting with a team of senior scientists and the diverse partners CCAST supports to draft and edit case studies for publication on the CCAST website that support the SWFireCAP’s roundtables. The case studies are summary reports of on-the-ground resource management and conservation projects that share lessons-learned with Tribal, state, and federal land managers, researchers undertaking applied science, and private landowners and ranchers. 

The ideal candidate is a self-motivated team player with excellent analytical and writing skills. This position is a great fit for a student who is highly motivated to learn about natural resource management challenges and opportunities, while gaining experience in science communication with the support of experienced mentors. This is a hybrid in-person and virtual position with the option of being fully remote. Find more information about the position and how to apply here, or email Ariel Léger at
