What the Business needs:

Web Developer for Project:

"Web app for tenant adjustment post-deployment" - The intern will experience hands-on web development, but also offer new perspectives, methods and features. As experience has taught us, a fresh set of eyes and ideas offers overarching benefits to the growth of software and client experiences. Their role will be to create internal database tools to allow the Development team to more easily make changes and adjustments to tenants as needed.

Research Assistant for Project:

"Methane mitigation candidates for application in ruminants" - The intern will undertake a review of the technical (& patent) literature, and the analysis of data relating to rumen dynamics and the anti-methanogen activity.

Shiny App Developer:

The intern will write unit/integration/system testing codes, integrate these codes into the app pipeline and GitHub alongside the current development team. This will also include documenting key analysis, communicating with developers on requirements of testing and explaining testing codes as they are developed.
