SEACR MARINE RESEARCH INTERNSHIPS – SUMMER 2008

Enthusiastic individuals with a keen interest in nature and science are
invited to discover the challenges of marine field research along Canada's
coastal rainforest through SEACR's Marine Research Intern Program!

The Society for Ecological and Coastal Research - SEACR - is a non-profit
organization, established in 1998, dedicated to scientific research on the
ecology of nearshore marine systems. SEACR is sponsoring several long term
ongoing research projects on gray whale ecology and resource use of marbled
murrelets in Clayoquot Sound, British Columbia, Canada. The projects are
organized and run by the Whale Research Lab of the University of Victoria,
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (http://www.geog.uvic.ca/whalelab/).

MRIP is a volunteer program where Research Interns live and work at a remote
research field-station in the coastal rainforest of Clayoquot Sound, British
Columbia. Interns assist experienced and dedicated marine ecologists with
ongoing field research and analysis related to coastal and marine ecology.

Internships are offered on a competitive basis, *at cost* and provide
invaluable exposure to boat based field work, marine mammal and bird
research, the Pacific coastal ocean environment, mentoring with established
researchers in marine ecology, and encouragement to work and play hard!

We have a limited number of 3 or 4-week Marine Research Internship available
for the 2008 Summer. There is no deadline to apply. However, approved
applications are reviewed and accepted on a first-come, first serve basis.

If you are interested in applying for a position, please see the details of
our application process on our website

Questions regarding the MRIP application or internships can be directed by
