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.
