Undergraduate Internship with the Beauchamp Lab (School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences)

The Beauchamp Lab in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences is looking to take on 1-2 interns this fall willing to work either 3 or 6 hours/week (i.e. 1 or 2 internship credits). Interns will be working on a project that aims to understand patterns in early marine growth and survival of juvenile Pacific salmon in Puget Sound. Each intern will be responsible for a variety of lab work, including:

  • Dissecting whole-body fish samples to collect biological data, including DNA, scale, and gut samples
  • Preparing fish scales for examination to determine growth patterns in Puget Sound salmon stocks
  • Examining fish gut contents to quantify prey types eaten by Puget Sound salmon species during their early marine experience in Puget Sound
  • Entering data
  • Other lab duties as needed

If the intern is interested, there is potential to continue into the internship into winter quarter or develop a capstone project in the future. If interested, please complete and sign the internship contract and email it to: mgamble@uw.edu.
