    Currently I'm in my second year of University at UVic in BC (Canada). And next summer I will be going to the Bamfield Marine Sciences Center. From what I've heard this will look good for applying to Grad schools, but I would like to have some ceph experience before I graduate. Because I'm taking 5 years to complete my degree I have an extra summer for work experience but I'm not sure where I can go to get ceph specific experience. Are there places abroad that might offer something similar to what I'm looking for? Because there isn't much ceph work here.

    Thanks,
    Jesse

    Jesse,

    Check out Roger Hanlon's lab at the Marine Biological Lab in Woods Hole, MA!

    Great internship opportunity here! And plenty of ceph research! I worked in his lab a few years ago and highly suggest it if you like cephs!
