The Marine Mammal Behavior and Cognition
Lab<http://www.usm.edu/psy-kuczaj/>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.
