ACCRETE (Acidification, Climate, and Coral Reef Ecosystems TEam -
https://www.coral.noaa.gov/research/accrete.html), part of NOAA/AOML's
Ocean Chemisty and Ecosystems Division (OCED -
https://www.aoml.noaa.gov/ocd/ocdweb/index.html) and the University of
Miami’s Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (CIMAS),
is accepting applications for a one-year internship position, offered
annually to a highly motivated recent college graduate interested in
gaining experience in the fields of coral reef ecology and ocean
acidification research.

ACCRETE is actively researching how climate change and ocean acidification
will be, and already are affecting the construction (coral growth,
calcification) and breakdown (bioerosion, dissolution) of coral reef
ecosystems, as well as the associated ramifications these processes have
for ecosystem function. The successful applicant will work with a diverse
team of scientists, postdocs, and students at NOAA and UM laboratories in
Miami, Florida.

During the year, the intern will gain extensive hands-on experience with
laboratory and field research including, but not limited to, experiments
conducted in the CIMAS/AOML Experimental Reef Lab (ERL -
), analysis of carbonate chemistry for ocean acidification research, scuba
diving and fieldwork in the Florida Keys (
<https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/co2/story/Cheeca+Rocks>, involvement in the
National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan (NCRMP -
https://www.coris.noaa.gov/monitoring/), CT scanning of coral (
http://www.icenochs.com/interests-1/#/new-page/) and reef frameworks (
<http://www.icenochs.com/interests-1/#/new-page-1/>, as well as 3D scanning
and printing for scientific instrument development (

The position will be supervised by Dr. Ian Enochs and at the conclusion of
the year-long internship, the successful applicant will be expected to
present a talk on their work. Current AAUS authorization is required for
participation in scuba diving operations. The position will be paid hourly,
totaling roughly $30k over the year.

Please send a CV and letter of interest to graham.kolodziej at noaa.gov, with “
ACCRETE internship application” in the subject line. Applications must be
received by June 21st, 2019.

Thank you for your time and interest.
