NOAA Fisheries 2012 Summer Internships for Undergraduate Students at The Northeast Fisheries Science Center

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) is offering summer employment /internship positions in 2012 through its Bradford E. Brown Student Internship Program. Named for a retired NOAA Fisheries scientist who was a leader in introducing young people to fisheries science, the program offers a limited number of paid summer positions during May to September distributed across NEFSC programs and laboratories.

Research topics include population biology and dynamics, resource assessment and environmental surveys, taxonomy, physical and biological oceanography, social sciences, data management, larval fish/plankton ecology, large marine ecosystems, aquaculture, biotechnology, remote sensing, protected species and apex predators. Further information about the Northeast Fisheries Science Center and its research facilities is available online at: http://www.nefsc.noaa.gov/aboutus.html

Pending available funding, summer positions are offered throughout the Center’s six laboratories, which are located in Woods Hole, Mass.; Narragansett, R.I.; Milford, Conn.; Highlands, N.J., Washington, D.C. and Orono, Maine.  Summer positions are filled by matching an applicant’s skills and interest with an appropriate area of research within these laboratories. The 2012 list of summer job/internship opportunities and all related information and requirements can be found online at http://www.nefsc.noaa.gov/sstudent/.

To participate in the internship program, applicants must be an active full-time student or half-time undergraduate/graduate student at a college or university for the upcoming 2012 school year at the time of application, or be accepted as a full-time or half-time student in an academic program for the 2012 school year by the time the summer position begins. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen. All completed application materials must be postmarked by April 15, 2012.
