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.
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
About the Dauphin
Island Sea Lab: DISL is located on a 36-acre campus on the east end
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
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.
Students cannot have graduated at the time of the fellowship. Students who have
participated in an NSF OCEfunded REU program
are not eligible for a second internship. Participants must be U.S. citizens or
permanent residents of the U.S. and its possessions. Minorities are encouraged
$5,000 will be provided for the 10-week full-time program. Students will be

Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory
Rutgers NJ Agricultural Experiment Station
6959 Miller Avenue
Port Norris, NJ 08349
SPRING TECHNICIAN - During the spring and fall, the responsibilities of this position will be varied and will include duties in the hatchery, field, and laboratory as needed. During the summer research period, along with the laboratory Field Manager, is responsible for the care and maintenance of over 300 bushels of experimental oysters confined to bags on our tidal flats. These oysters are progeny groups generated by our long-standing and continuing program in oyster genetics and breeding. Much of the work week is spent on the tidal flats in front of the laboratory. Duties include tray and bag maintenance, collection of biological data on progeny groups, and maintenance of our 75,000 gallon land-based nursery and holding systems.
CULTURE TECHNICIAN – These positions will be located at the New Jersey Aquaculture Innovation Center located in North Cape May, NJ. Duties associated with these positions include microalgal culture, assisting in spawning of bivalve molluscs, rearing of larvae and post-set juveniles, maintenance of hatchery larval and downweller tanks and nursery upweller raceway tanks and equipment.
TECHNICIAN - Assist the laboratory Field Manager in the care and maintenance of shellfish brood stock located in our quarantine, nursery, and field grow out systems. Position responsibilities require working outside in all weather conditions, ATV operation, and some lifting.
HATCHERY TECHNICIAN - Duties associated with these positions include assisting in spawning of bivalve molluscs, rearing of larvae and post-set juveniles, daily record keeping, maintenance of hatchery and nursery grow-out system tanks and equipment, and micro-algal culture. Attention to detail is critical in these positions.
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.
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
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.
Facts and Deadlines:
The YLCC is managed cooperatively with the University of Washington
Internship opportunities and application forms are posted on
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
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.
