The Marine Mammal Behavior and Cognition Lab at the University of
Southern Mississippi plans to offer an internship to college juniors,
seniors and recent graduates for the Fall semester of 2013.

Interns work on on-going research projects, and will gain experience
in both behavioral and acoustic data analyses. Specific experiences
depend on the research projects that are ongoing at the time of the
internship.

We plan to accept 1 to 2 interns for the Fall 2013 internship session,
which will extend from late August to mid-December. Interns will
assist with video analyses of dolphin social behavior and humpback
whale behavior as well as analyses of dolphin acoustic behavior.

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

Students interested in applying for the internship are required to send:
Completed application
Resume/Curriculum Vitae
Personal statement describing your career goals, reason(s) for wanting
the internship, and what you expect to contribute to and gain from the
internship
Unofficial or official copy of your transcripts
At least two letters of recommendation (preferably from those who can
attest to your academic and scientific abilities)

      **International applicants have a more intensive application
process and are required to obtain a J-1 visa if selected.
