The duration of the internships is 10 weeks (20 hours/week), and a stipend of RM200 per week will be available for the successful applicants.
We welcome applications from students in all disciplines (both undergraduate and postgraduate) who have strong programming skills. Experience in open source GIS software development is desirable but not necessary as training will be given. This project requires candidates to be innovative in developing new techniques and applications, and to be able to work independently to tight deadlines. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential. Very mathematical and analytical skills are also essential as is the ability to work in a team.
Interested applicants should email their CV and a cover letter to Dr. Tuong Thuy Vu (email@example.com) in the School of Geography. Application deadline is March 21st, 2012.
