Cascadia Research Collective is looking for interns for Winter and 
Spring 2015!

We are seeking interns to help with our research! Interns with Cascadia 
most often are assisting staff on our long-term photo-ID studies of 
humpback, blue, and gray whales off the US West Coast and the inside 
waters of Washington state, or a variety of odontocetes species 
(rough-tooth dolphins, melon-headed whales) from our work in Hawai'i. In 
this capacity, interns will be expected to spend a large portion of 
their time comparing photographs to our existing catalogs, and may 
additionally be involved in digital image processing, data entry, and 
tasks related to historical catalog maintenance. The positions are 
largely office-based (in Olympia, WA), although there may be some 
opportunities to assist staff in field data collection. In addition, 
interns will assist staff in stranding response in Washington state as 
they come up. This includes participation in beach surveys, data and 
specimen collection, data entry, and assisting in necropsies of both 
pinnipeds and cetaceans. Responses may involve hiking into remote areas 
and carrying heavy loads, and participants should be comfortable with 
the sight of blood, and strong, unpleasant odors.

Cascadia gives priority to those seeking internships for 
college/university credit as well as to those who can commit full time 
(40 hours a week). We prefer those students who are considered a junior 
or senior in college with some science classes in their background or 
those seeking to go to or are in graduate school in a marine science 
field. These positions are unpaid and at this time we are not able to 
house anyone. The internships are generally three months in length and 
Cascadia is currently filling positions for winter and spring of 2015 
(Jan-March and mid-March through mid-June). International applicants 
will be considered, but is the responsibility of the applicant to 
acquire necessary visas and documentation.

If you are interested, please check out our web site and send a resume 
to our intern coordinator (Kiirsten Flynn) and a letter of interest that 
describes why you are applying for the position and how the experience 
will help you be successful in meeting long-term goals.
