    Hi Folks,

    Many of you are aware that the Noble Research Institute, including the Agricultural Division, provides significant support to youth through scholarships, assisting with livestock shows, the Junior Beef Excellence Program, AgVenture, and many other activities. We also hire interns each summer to assist with various projects. Each intern is assigned a project that involves collecting, analyzing and presenting data in the forms of a written report and an oral presentation. Other duties may include assisting with a producer or institutional surveys, helping with programs and field days, and working with other Noble Research Institute staff.  #agricultural

    Intern job openings are normally advertised in January or February with announcements sent to various universities and listings on the Noble Research Institute Web site at http://www.noble.org/noble-scholar/. The positions are open to college students with junior, senior or graduate classifications with majors in the appropriate agricultural discipline. Employment begins in May and ends in August. Salary and other information is provided in each job announcement. Thoughts @George Miller?

    Hi Team,

    Figured I share a testimonial: "This experience has been extremely valuable to me personally and professionally. I was glad that I was kept busy with all of the projects, mini-trainings, researching, and coordinating assignments I was given, and I was also happy to work with multiple parts of the Structural Pest section (licensing, ASPCRO, compliance, etc.). Because I worked with every single person in the office with their certain specialty, I was able to gain a holistic view of the duties and responsibilities of this office. I also think the field outings were pertinent to my full understanding and appreciation of everything that the Structural Pest section does. Overall, I appreciated the opportunity to work at the Department of Agriculture very much, and look forward to working with the department in my future endeavors."

    To add!

    "Serving my time here as an intern has been a terrific experience. Coming in with an open mind and positive attitude, I've learned a lot about the Department of Agriculture and how it serves us and have also met plenty of good people as well; everyone within the department acts like family. Working in the microbiology food safety labs, the analyst took me under their wings and had no problem showing me everything they could about the labs and how things work. I've not only had the opportunity to perform different analysis in the labs, but also perform work outside of the lab partaking in an environmental swabbing of a facility which was very interesting. Everything I've had the chance to come in to contact with has been enlightening and engaging. My experience even catapulted me to an opportunity for full time employment with the Department. I now serve to protect the consuming public as a Food Safety Lab Analyst. It was because of my internship that this opportunity presented itself. The internship program is beneficial to anyone looking to capture the experience of their preferred career goal. I encourage it, you could learn a plethora of things along the way, and who knows what door will open for you next."

    Figured I'd attach a great white paper as well!

    Hi Melanie,

    Phosphorus (P) pollution of surface waters contributes to hazardous algal blooms, posing a significant public health risk from contact with toxins released by the algae. Replenishing P depleted from agricultural soils poses additional public health risks from pollution associated with fertilizer production and the exhaustion of limited domestic P deposits. Environmental health professional responsibilities can impact sources of P pollution, such as onsite wastewater treatment systems, land use planning, watershed and drinking water protection, and stormwater control. The watershed planning process provides an opportunity for environmental health professionals to become involved in protecting public health by assuring the most cost-effective strategies for P control and recovery.

    This special report reviews the properties of P that provide both opportunities and challenges for P control and recovery presents progress being made in P recovery from surface waters and highlights the most promising technologies for the near future. These technologies have significant implications for public health, the environment, and the economy. Environmental health practitioners can play a role in developing and implementing these technologies and in educating the public about the benefits of P recovery. #PublicHealthProfessionals​​​
