*Spring Internships with the Ocean Acidification Program at Mote Marine
Laboratory’s Elizabeth Moore International Center for Coral Reef Research
and Restoration*

The Ocean Acidification (OA) Program is seeking 3-4 interns for
winter/spring quarter (preferred start date of March 1, 2019) to join
research teams led by Dr. Emily Hall and Dr. Heather Page in Summerland
Key, FL. Dr. Hall’s intern(s) will be assisting with experiments
investigating the response of restoration corals to ocean acidification and
warming.  Dr. Page’s intern(s) will be studying the response of macroalgae
(seaweeds) photo-physiology and young Caribbean spiny lobster chemosensory
abilities to ocean acidification. Interns in both programs may be involved
with field studies characterizing water quality of coastal marine

They also will gain experience in husbandry of marine invertebrates and
algae, maintenance of an ocean acidification experimental system, and
laboratory techniques required to collect, preserve, and process water

We are seeking applicants who: 1) are currently enrolled in OR a recent
graduate from an undergraduate program, 2) demonstrate a general
understanding of marine chemistry, marine biology, and ecology, 3) have the
ability to work independently and part of a team, and 4) preferentially
have lab experience but those with a willingness and motivation to learn
are also encouraged to apply.

Internships typically last 12 weeks but there may be opportunities for a
longer duration. Hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm with occasional long
hours, evenings, and weekends.

If interested, please ignore the deadline for winter internship (which have
start dates of Feb-April) and submit an application at:
