Subject: Bermuda Zoological Society Graduate Internships Available for
The Bermuda Zoological Society and Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo are
pleased to announce that opportunities are available for graduate
students to take part in the extensive assessment and mapping of
Bermuda's marine habitats, as interns under the Bermuda Biodiversity
Project.  A limited number of scholarships are available to cover costs
of accommodation, food and local public transportation. Internships are
typically for 2 months and will commence in August 2008.
The North Atlantic islands of Bermuda are surrounded by over 750 sq km
of exceptionally healthy coral reefs and associated marine habitats. In
2008 the BREAM team will assess and map the distribution of soft corals
across the Bermuda Platform. We will also study the role that herbivory
and corallivory plays in structuring reef communities  across the
Bermuda Platform. Graduate interns will obtain practical experience in
data analysis and interpretation and GIS mapping. Interns will also work
alongside local environmental scientists in the conservation of
threatened marine species and habitats.
Certified SCUBA divers only may apply. Applicants should have experience
in the identification of Western Atlantic hard and soft corals,
macroalgae, or fish, and in data analysis with basic statistical
packages. Experience using GIS ArcInfo is also an asset but not
essential. Interns will work under the supervision of the Project
Leader, but must demonstrate the ability to work independently.
