Research Experience for Undergraduate- Marine Science Fellowships 2015 PDF Print E-mail

This program is for undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers or graduate studies in Marine Sciences. Students selected for the program will participate in an intensive 10-week research experience in which they will work in a faculty research group to develop and complete an independent research project. Students will gain basic field and laboratory research skills and develop proficiency in data interpretation and presentation. Participants also will benefit from relevant field excursions, a series of workshops on professional skills development, and lectures by outstanding visiting speakers. DISL will award up to 8 semester hours for this experience with prior approval from the student’s home campus.

Research areas of DISL faculty include: ecology of marine and estuarine invertebrates and fishes; plant-animal interactions in seagrass beds; microbial ecology; nutrient biogeochemistry; benthic ecology; trophic interactions and carbon budgets; life history and biomechanics of marine invertebrates; paleoecology; planktonecology; marine mammal ecology; and others.

 

About the Dauphin Island Sea Lab: DISL is located on a 36-acre campus on the east end of Dauphin Island, 35 miles south of Mobile, Alabama, in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. DISL provides an academic program and research facilities for students and faculty from 22 Alabama colleges and universities, and visitors from throughout the U.S. The campus includes classrooms, research laboratories, dormitories, dining facilities, library, research vessels and a public aquarium. Summer weather on the Alabama coast is excellent for recreation and field research. In addition to undergraduate activities, the summer includes graduate research and classes for 50+ students, research programs of the resident faculty, courses and workshops for teachers, and summer programs for K – 12 students.

Eligibility: Applications are invited from undergraduates in their junior and senior years with interests in biology, chemistry, geology and environmental sciences.

Climate Change Youth Leadership Opportunities PDF Print E-mail

The implications of climate change are challenging and far-reaching, particularly for land managers tasked with protecting the resources of national parks and other protected areas. To meet this challenge, managers need to encourage and make use of the creative and innovative thinking of the next generation of youth scientists and leaders.

 

The George Melendez Wright Initiative for Young Leaders in Climate Change (YLCC) builds a pathway for exemplary students in higher education to apply cutting-edge climate change knowledge to park management. Through a summer-long internship, undergraduate and graduate students will gain valuable work experience, explore career options, and develop leadership skills under the mentorship and guidance of the National Park Service (NPS). Parks and programs will increase their capacity to understand and respond to climate change and its impacts.

 

National parks and NPS programs develop and oversee structured projects in one or more of the following interdisciplinary areas: climate change science and monitoring; resource conservation and adaptation; policy development; sustainable park operations; facilities adaptation; and communication/interpretation/education. During the internship, students apply critical thinking and problem solving skills to climate change challenges and communicate with diverse stakeholders. Interns who successfully complete the YLCC, an approved Direct Hire Authority Internship program, will be eligible to be hired non-competitively into subsequent federal jobs once they complete their degree program. These jobs would be in the Department of Interior (DOI), NPS, or one of the other bureaus within the DOI. An intern must qualify for the job in order to be hired non-competitively.

 

Quick Facts and Deadlines:

• The YLCC is managed cooperatively with the University of Washington

• Internship opportunities and application forms are posted on

http://parksclimateinterns.org/index.php/internships/apply-

• Internships are 12 weeks (40 hours/week) during the summer

• Interns are paid $14/hour plus benefits

• Applications are accepted from early December 2014 until late

January 2015

 

Who was George Melendez Wright?

George Melendez Wright was deeply influential in bringing science to the management of America’s national parks. Working as a naturalist in Yosemite National Park in the 1920s, Wright argued that good science was needed for effective conservation. In 1930, he was appointed Chief of the Wildlife Division for the NPS where he encouraged the agency to embrace science-based approaches to conserving species, habitats, and other natural conditions in the parks. Although he died while he was still a young man, Wright’s legacy lives on in the NPS’s commitment to use the best available science for preserving the resources of our National Parks.
