Internships and Work Experience
Our internship program is highly competitive, attracting over 150 applicants annually from top universities worldwide. But it is well worth it. Students become an integral part of the team and gain hand-on experience. Work is challenging but fair. Previous interns placed in high profile space jobs and PhD programs. Work while learning about the next generation in space operations and making it happen from the ground up.
There are three internship rounds per year, with five seats per round.
Applicants should have relevant skill for the position they are applying. You must be willing to enter the unknown, take initiative, experiment, and create. A passion for space is essential, because that's what we're all about.
RSOC – Sydney
Space Software Engineer: *solid* C++, mySQL. Satellite systems, orbital mechanics, mission analysis, and ground station hardware desired. Experience in satellite telemetry analysis and/or space operations desired (but not required).
Space Scientist: Knowledge in Space Environment phenomenon such as solar radiation and magnetic field models are essential. Successful candidates will apply space physics to real world problems so an understanding of algorithms is important.
Space Operations: Orbital Mechanics, space systems, machine learning, Octave/MATLAB. Experience with SATCOM is a plus.
RSOC – Denver
Operationally Responsive Subsystems (ORS)
ORS investigates a new generation of spacecraft avionics which can self-diagnose and autonomously correct for various problems which can occur in space. C++, Octave, space systems, space weather.
Space Scientist: Knowledge in Space Environment phenomenon such as solar radiation and magnetic field models are essential. This is an entry-level research internship. Successful candidates will apply space physics models in the program so an understanding of algorithms is important.
Systems Engineer: Knowledge in satellite subsystems and design components is important. Successful candidates will be experimenting satellite data, benchmarking performance for use in systems modeling.
