Spend a quarter studying in residence at the UW’s marine field station at Friday Harbor Labs. Students at all levels from any major are encouraged to explore the 2016 course offerings ranging from introductory marine biology to advanced research apprenticeships.
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.Read more
Applications are now being accepted for paid marine science research internships at the University of Delaware for Summer 2016!
Interns will work with faculty and research scientists in a graduate student atmosphere on a research topic in chemical, physical, or biological oceanography, marine biology or marine geology. In addition to hands-on research experience, student support includes a $5,600 stipend, campus housing, and travel assistance.
Welcome to those of you who are new and welcome back to our returning students! The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) helps students in all fields to enrich their academic experience by engaging in exciting hands-on research with UW faculty. URP offers courses, workshops, advising, and resources to help students find year-round and summer research opportunities, get academic credit, present their work, and obtain funding.
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
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.Read more
