Internships in Microbial Ecology, Aquaculture, Ocean science, and more are offered each summer at UMaine's Darling Marine Center in Walpole, Maine. Nine different types of undergraduate Internships are outlined in detail on our website.

The DMC is closely associated with the University’s School of Marine Sciences (SMS). Fourteen SMS faculty are in residence at the DMC. Focal research themes include aquaculture and marine fisheries; biogeochemistry and microbial ecology; conservation science and policy; invertebrate biology and biodiversity; marine archeology; and remote sensing, phytoplankton ecology, and ocean optics.

Throughout the year, visiting researchers and students from throughout the University of Maine System, the state and the nation use the DMC as a platform for investigating a wide range of terrestrial, coastal marine, and estuarine themes. The DMC is one of the core research sites for the NSF-funded SEANET program, and also contributes to other marine monitoring networks.
