Undergraduate Internships - Dauphin Island Sea Lab in the Marine Ecology Lab (Dauphin Island, AL)

*Undergraduate Internships at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab in the Marine Ecology Lab *

***Application Deadline*: **
Summer Applications - March 9, 2015, 11:59pm CST Fall Applications -  June 15, 2015, 11:59pm CST

***Position description***
The Marine Ecology Lab is looking for interns to help conduct research on several on-going projects in various nearshore benthic habitats along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Research will be based out of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab located on Dauphin Island, Alabama at the mouth of Mobile Bay.
Interns will work closely with Dr. Ken Heck, his lab technicians and graduate students.

We are looking for interns for both summer and fall seasons. The duration of the internship is between 3 and 6 months. The internship will have a flexible start date with summer interns arriving in May/June and fall interns arriving in August/September. You may apply for both seasons if you wish.

Interns will be required to participate heavily in field-based activities which are sometimes characterized by long hours and potentially arduous conditions. We are seeking people who are committed and enthusiastic about marine science and may be considering marine ecology as a career.
Experience (although not necessary), as well as enthusiasm about marine research, are important aspects of a rewarding internship. This is a great opportunity for hands-on training in the field and laboratory.

Undergraduate juniors and seniors (at time of application) enrolled in marine programs or with marine experience are preferred. Recent graduates
