The Marine Mammal
Behavior and Cognition Lab at the University of Southern Mississippi offers
an internship to college juniors, seniors and recent graduates. There are three
available internship periods each year: Spring, Summer, and Fall. 

Interns work on research projects being conducted by faculty
members and graduate students, and will gain experience in both behavioral and
acoustic data collection and analysis. Specific experiences depend on the
research projects that are ongoing at the time of the internship.

accepting two interns for this internship period.The primary research being conducted at this
time involves field abundance surveys and photo-identification of bottlenose
dolphins in Mississippi Sound. Applications due March 15th. Anticipated start date is May 1st.

are responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing. Interns are also required to receive college credit for the
internship; enrollment may be with The University of Southern Mississippi or an
