The
University of Southern Mississippi Psychology Department is offering a
Marine Mammal Behavior and Cognition internship to college juniors,
seniors and recent graduates for the spring of 2010. College credits
for the internship are awarded by the University of Southern
Mississippi. 
  
Interns
will work with faculty and graduate student researchers and will have
an opportunity to help in the analysis of data from USM’s Mississippi
Wild Dolphin Project, a boat-based research project surveying the
Mississippi Gulf Coast bottlenose dolphin population. Interns may
assist in the analysis of environmental, behavioral, and acoustic data,
as well as photo-ID. 

 
In
the research laboratory, interns will gain experience in different
areas, such as behavioral analysis using video and ethogram data and
acoustic analyses of a variety of cetacean species, including killer
whales, sperm whales, beaked whales, and bottlenose and rough-tooth
dolphins. Interns may also have the opportunity to assist graduate
students in the collection of behavioral data of captive rough-tooth
dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. Interns are also encouraged to
complete a small personal research project on a topic relevant to their
research interests.
  
The
internship is a full time voluntary position, and students are
responsible for their own transportation and housing arrangements. Students interested in the Marine Mammal Behavior and Cognition internship are required to send:
