The University of Southern Mississippi Psychology Department is offering a Marine Mammal Behavior and Cognition internship to college juniors, seniors and recent graduates. College credits for the internship are awarded by the University of Southern Mississippi .
Interns gain hands-on experience during boat surveys studying the Mississippi Gulf C oast bottlenose dolphin population. Interns assist with observations of wild dolphin behaviors and photo-identification. In addition, interns learn how to gather physical and biological data on board using a variety of scientific tools.
In the research laboratory, at the USM Hattiesburg campus, interns learn about photo-identification, behavioral analysis, and acoustical analysis. Lectures given on topics in Experimental and Comparative Psychology may occur throughout the internship period.
