Kirby Summer Internship

The second annual Kirby Summer Internship for graduate students in education, psychology, sociology, public health, epidemiology or a related field with a focus or interest in sexual and reproductive health is available in summer 2015. The internship is named after the late Dr. Douglas Kirby, a senior research scientist at ETR who dedicated his career to promoting sexual and reproductive health among young people through writing, teaching and research.

The internship provides mentored work in research syntheses, prevention programs, implementation science, online learning or research methodology (e.g., measurement and analysis) at ETR’s corporate office in Scotts Valley, California, or ETR’s Oakland office.  The Kirby intern:
