Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Student Experiences Aboard Ships
STEMSEAS aims to provide ship-based, 6-10 day exploratory experiences for undergraduates from diverse backgrounds aboard NSF-funded research vessels. Students will sail with experienced faculty mentors and engage in geoscience and oceanography activities (while also having fun)!
All expenses will be paid by the program- there is no cost to participants.
The tentative 2016 schedule is as follows:
May 10-18: Sail on the Oceanus from San Diego, CA to Honolulu, HI.
UC San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Marine Physical Laboratory
Call for 2016 Summer Interns
Are you contemplating a career in scientific research and development?
The Marine Physical Laboratory, at UC San Diego’s world renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is currently seeking inquisitive, motivated undergraduate students with exceptional aptitude for quantitative science to apply for the 2016 MPL Summer Internship Program.
Spend spring quarter studying in residence at the UW’s marine field station at Friday Harbor Labs.
Explore the marine environment of the Salish Sea where your classroom is a marine preserve, and the boats are just steps away from your dorm.
Courses for all levels from introductory marine biology to advanced research apprenticeships.
Get to know your teachers with class sizes frequently less than 20 students.
Applications due February 22, 2016
Oregon Sea Grant is excited to announce our sixth annual Summer Scholars Program for eligible undergraduates. This ten-week program places high caliber undergraduate students from around the country with public agencies (federal, state, and local) to provide students with hands-on experience under the mentorship of a career professional. In addition to supporting agency programs and initiatives, the goals of the program are to offer students professional skills, agency workplace experience, and real life practice in marine science, policy, management, and outreach.
Science & Engineering Internship Program
The Nautilus Science and Engineering Internship Program aims to train undergraduate and graduate students studying ocean science, engineering and video/film in the at-sea environment. Intern positions entail 2-5 week periods working aboard E/V Nautilus as Data Loggers, ROV Pilots, or Video Engineers. All of our interns spend their time on Nautilus working with a wide array of scientists, engineers, students, and educators.
See the final projects for the undergraduate majors in Aquatic & Fishery Sciences on December 11 in FSH 107.
