The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), located in Austin, Texas, provides experimental and computational expertise for solving water resource problems worldwide. Our research and development addresses water resource challenges in groundwater, watersheds, rivers, reservoirs, lakes, estuaries, harbors, coastal inlets and wetlands. Research programs range from design guidance to numerical models.
The intern will participate in the design, development, and evaluation of numerical models designed to simulate subsurface and free-surface flows. The participant will gain experience with hydrologic and hydrodynamic models developed in the Coastal Hydraulics Laboratory and contribute to open-source projects.
This ORISE appointment is for a 12 month period. Appointments may be extended depending on funding availability, project assignment, program rules, and availability of the participant.
Desired Start Date: 9/30/19
Participants will receive a stipend to be determined by ERDC-ITL. Stipends are typically based on the participant’s academic standing, discipline, experience, and research facility location. Other benefits may include the following:
- Health Insurance Supplement. Participants are eligible to purchase health insurance through ORISE.
- Relocation Allowance
- Training and Travel Allowance
