MBARI Summer Internship Program

Not necessarily directly ceph related but a great place to get a start.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute's summer internship program provides an opportunity for talented college students (undergraduate and graduate) and educators to come to MBARI for a period of 10 weeks to work on a specific project under MBARI staff supervision.

With state-of-the-art facilities and equipment that includes research vessels, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to explore the deep ocean, MBARI's Summer Internship Program offers teachers and students unique opportunities to be involved in advanced research and development projects.
The focus of the MBARI internship is on the intern's professional development—learning research techniques and improving communication and collaboration skills. Each intern will have an MBARI mentor who will supervise a specific project. Interns will also serve as peer-mentors to other interns.
Summer interns are selected following a rigorous application procedure and merit review. They are from around the world and represent a variety of different backgrounds, experience, and education. They all share a common desire to learn more about the marine environment and to work with the scientists and engineers at MBARI.
The application period for the 2015 internship program is now open - potential projects for 2015 are posted - these will be updated as new projects are added so check back if you don't see one you are interested. Applications must include a cover letter (stating your specific research interests, complete contact information, relevant coursework and grades received, and the project that you are interested in applying for), curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation. In addition, you must complete the online supplemental information form.
The 2015 MBARI internship program will be from June 8th, 2015 - August 14th, 2015.
