Description:
The Fisheries Ecology lab is seeking interns to work under the faculty direction of Dr. Sean Powers at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab on a wide variety of projects in waters adjacent to Dauphin Island, a gulf barrier island in the northern Gulf of Mexico fringing the Mobile Bay estuary. Paid internships are available throughout the field season. Preference is given to those who can participate for a minimum of six months.

Internships in the Fisheries Ecology Lab involve hands-on participation in ongoing research. Qualified applicants will have the opportunity to assist with groundbreaking studies in Fisheries Ecology in the northern Gulf of Mexico that involve a variety of fish (bony fishes, sharks and rays) and shellfish from both offshore and inshore locales. Interns will gain experience with various sampling techniques used in fisheries research, as well as the associated laboratory sample processing.

Potential candidates will work closely with a variety of lab personnel, including principal investigators, post docs, current graduate students and lab technicians. Preference will be given to applicants considering marine science and/or fisheries as a career.
