A paid internship is currently available in the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Zooplankton Ecology Lab. The position, which has flexible starting and ending dates, offers recently graduated or senior undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in an active field and laboratory study of gelatinous plankton ecology. Activities will include field sample collections aboard a 23’ vessel in the northern Gulf of Mexico along with various technical applications of biological oceanography and zooplankton ecology. Upon returning to the lab, the intern will be requested to assist in processing samples.

There will also be opportunities to learn other ecological field sampling techniques in a variety of marine environments. In addition, interns are encouraged to attend seminars on current topics in marine science hosted at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and at the University of South Alabama. Housing is available either on or off DISL’s campus. The position requires valid driver’s license and clean driving record and the ability to lift light loads and to work on small boats.

Duration of the internship is up to 12 months with a flexible start date during Fall 2009.

We are seeking people who are committed and enthusiastic about marine science and may be considering marine science as a career. This job requires long days of physically demanding field work and long hours sorting samples in the lab. Experience (although not necessary), as well as enthusiasm about marine research, are important aspects of a rewarding internship. This is a great opportunity for hands-on training in the field and laboratory.

This internship is only available to U.S. citizens with a clean driving record.
