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 2012 Internship: The primary research being conducted at this
time involves field surveys and photo-identification of bottlenose
dolphins in Mississippi Sound. Applications are due June 1st.
Anticipated start date is in mid August and will last until mid
December.

This internship is an unpaid voluntary position, and interns are
responsible for arranging their own transportation and housing.

internship; enrollment may be with The University of Southern
Mississippi or an academic institution of their choice.
