Two positions are open:

1.-This intern will support data tasks related to the automated classification of eucalypt flowering from aerial imagery (satellite images). This will require some previous experience with R programming and an interest in learning working with spatial data and machine learning. (~June 1- TBD)

2.-This intern will support data management and data sharing efforts. This will require some previous experience with R programming, Github, some familiarity with data organization and cleaning processes and a general awareness of data repositories. (<40 hours total)

These are Remote Internship opportunities.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

These are a few learning outcomes, they vary by project and previous experience:

-learn how to effectively clean and organize data for analysis

-learn analytics best practices for reproducible data science

-gain experience working with R and other computational tools & software

-gain experience working with spatial data

-gain experience applying machine learning to biological/ecological datasets

-learn how to publish data

Conpensation: Both internships described here are paid.
