From the Northern Virginia Emergency Response System:
“Seeking part time graduate intern for Northern Virginia Emergency Response System (NVERS)
The Northern Virginia Emergency Response System (NVERS) is seeking to fill a part-time paid graduate intern position. The NVERS team supports emergency preparedness projects that include, but are not limited to: coordinating training, policies, and processes across the Region’s hospitals; pharmaceutical inventory and procurement for medical surge; helping citizens with preparedness; improving regional logistics; updating operational plans, SOPs, and manuals; regional public health planning; Medical Reserve Corps training and coordination; and recovery resource planning. The graduate interns will have a key role in supporting these projects and regional working groups (such as regional fire chiefs, senior operations, and emergency managers).
The ideal candidate is interested in emergency preparedness and regional planning. They will be part of a program management team with support, but it is critical that they are self-starters and comfortable working independently. Our NVERS graduate interns work regularly with fire chiefs, police chiefs, emergency managers, CIOs, and other senior leaders representing the jurisdictions of Northern Virginia. This is an excellent opportunity to apply graduate course work, contribute to a broad spectrum of projects, and partner closely with senior public safety officials in your community. The schedule is fairly flexible to accommodate course work.
Please submit your resume with a cover letter to NVERS Executive Director John White at [email protected]
