Opportunity Description: The Heck Lab at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab is looking for an intern to help conduct submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) research along the Northern Gulf of Mexico. We are looking to fill this position quickly with the intern starting on or before September 15th, 2018. The duration of the internship is 6 months, with a possible extension and/or advancement depending on performance and funding.
Interns will be required to participate in field-based activities primarily associated with an NSF-sponsored collaborative research project exploring the broader effects of marine grazing and tropicalization on Western Atlantic seagrass beds. Field research will be primarily in St. Joseph Bay, Florida which will require bi-weekly overnight trips with some trips characterized by long days of physically demanding field work and potentially arduous conditions.
Required Experience: Recent graduates (<1 year post undergraduate degree) are preferred. This internship is available to U.S. citizens and residents only.
