Student Research Internships Working with the CVP

The Cornell Vegetable Program is looking to hire two student research interns this summer to assist in scouting fresh market vegetables in western New York. This internship will start in May, working alongside Darcy Telenko, as part of the iPiPE CAP (Integrated Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education, Cooperative Agricultural Project) internship program. iPiPE is committed to investing in the coaching and development of future agricultural scientists/extension educators through a limited term internship experience in an applied environment. The purpose of the program is to learn how to scout for pests in the field and contribute observations to the iPiPE platform. These positions are 5-month appointments (39 hours/week) and will be located in the CCE Erie County Office (East Aurora, New York).

Applicants must apply online. View the full job description, qualifications, and application instructions.
