Dr. Brian Waldron
Director, Center for Partnerships in GIS (CPGIS)
Wilder Tower Suite 900
678-3283 or email@example.com
Project Description: CPGIS performs a number of services to local, state and federal
government as well as NPO’s on mapping spatial features and conducting spatial analyses
using geographic information systems, or GIS. GIS is a very powerful tool for building,
identifying and analyzing spatial connectivity between features whether it be identifying
the shortest ambulatory route from the hospital to a home, mapping habitat impairments
along a stream, finding trends in health for epidemiology, or creating a network of
man-made infrastructure. Hence, GIS is used in geography, engineering, business,
medical, biology, archeology, computer science, city planning, law, and many more
fields. CPGIS hires students from nearly 12 different departments to work in interdisciplinary
teams on projects both in the field and in the lab. Knowing GIS is not a requirement
as we will teach you the software – you will learn some of the most advanced functions
of GIS making you quite marketable upon graduation. All workers are paid well with
raises given based on productivity and added responsibility.
Requirements: Provide a resume to Dr. Waldron. Students must be able to work at
least 10 hours a week. Employment is continued during the summer.
Starting date: Hiring occurs throughout the year based on project demands.
Method of compensation: Hourly wages. You do NOT need to be a full-time student to
work at CPGIS.
