The Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council is looking for interested applicants for a paid summer internship opportunity.

The internship is related to transportation planning and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as well as related technologies (mapping, GPS, databases, etc.). This position may also have substantial field work and transportation data collection tasks such as vehicular traffic counts, pedestrian counts, or review and documentation of existing transportation or land use conditions.

Skills, training, or classroom instruction in GIS are highly desirable. Experience with Adobe Creative Suite is helpful. Other qualifications include: strong interpersonal, communication and organizational skills, and the ability to work as part of a team. Working knowledge of Microsoft Excel and Access desired.

This internship pays approximately $15/hour (DOQ) for a maximum of 40 hours a week. Applicants should be aware that some data collection will take place in the early morning (6:00-9:00 a.m.) and late afternoon (4:00-6:00 p.m.) and interns will be expected to have a reasonable amount of flexibility with scheduling. Opportunities to complete the required work within a “compressed” work week (i.e. 4 days per week) may exist.

The SMTC is flexible in terms of start and end date of the internship depending on the chosen candidate’s needs.
