Applications are invited for 10-week paid undergraduate research internships at Berkeley SETI Research Center for summer 2018. BSRC is a
world-leader in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence – the quest for a scientific answer to one of humanity’s oldest questions: Are we
alone in the Universe? Housed in the Astronomy Department at the University of California, Berkeley, the team at BSRC leads the science
program for the $100-million Breakthrough Listen project. Our scientists and engineers are pioneers in the development of software,
instrumentation, and science strategy for the search for intelligent life on other worlds. We have access to substantial amounts of time on
the planet’s largest telescopes, connections to leading players in industry, and we’re based in one of the world’s premiere astronomy
research institutions. We’re also psyched that we get to wake up each day and hunt for aliens.

Current sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduates (including non-US citizens) studying at a degree-granting institution in the US are eligible to
apply. Around 5 - 7 positions will be available. A stipend of $20 / hr (up to a maximum of $8000) will be provided. Details and links to the application form are at

Perhaps one day you could run an internship for mature engineers (over 50) who would just love to be involved for a few weeks and would not want any renumeration. In fact I would probably pay you !!!! Keep up the good work, both my PCs are actively hunting ET for you, hopefully it won't be too much longer.

Is the program only for people from Earth, or can extraterrestrials with the same or higher skills as humans participate in it, if they are currently on Earth?
