The Marine Mammal
Behavior and Cognition Lab at the University of Southern Mississippi offers
an internship to college juniors, seniors and recent graduates. We are currently seeking applicants for the Spring 2011 Internship. 



We anticipate 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 sometime mid to
late January. A typical internship generally lasts 3-4
months.


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 vary, depending on the
research projects that are ongoing at the time of the internship. 


This internship is an unpaid voluntary position, and interns
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 academic institution of their choice.    


Students interested in applying for the internship are
required to send:
