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 analyses. Specific experiences depend on the
research projects that are ongoing at the time of the internship. 





Fall 2010 Internship: We will be accepting one
or 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.  Anticipated start
date is Aug 1.




This internship is an unpaid voluntary position, and interns
are responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing
arrangements. Interns are also required to receive college credit for the
internship; enrollment may be with The University of Southern Mississippi or an
academic institution of their choice.
