The Marine Mammal Center, an equal opportunity, non-profit employer, is
seeking a Veterinary Intern to join our team. The Marine Mammal Center’s
mission is to expand knowledge about marine mammals—their health and that
of their ocean environment—and to inspire their global conservation. Our
core work is the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured marine
mammals, supported by state-of-the-art animal care and research facilities,
a corps of dedicated volunteers, and an engaged community.

The Marine Mammal Center, in collaboration with the University of
California at Davis, has an exciting opportunity for a Veterinary Intern
based in Sausalito, California at The Marine Mammal Center. *This position
requires a DVM degree or equivalent and previous marine mammal or wildlife
experience is desirable. *Preference will be given to individuals that
possess at least one year of clinical veterinary experience. The position
is paid ($30,000/year) and includes health insurance and other benefits
through UC Davis. Housing is available at no cost to the intern in a unit
located within the Marin Headlands, and the house is shared during the busy
season with veterinary residents, researchers, and externs. *This Intern
position is scheduled to start August 1, 2015 and is for a one-year term. *

The Marine Mammal Center veterinary staff includes full and part time
veterinarians, three veterinary technicians, a medical technologist and
research staff. This position reports to the Director of Veterinary Science
with day-to-day supervision by the Staff Veterinarian and also works
closely with the Veterinary Science team. The Veterinary Intern’s
responsibilities include assisting the veterinary medical staff in
providing medical management of a large number of stranded marine mammals
(mostly pinnipeds); performing post mortem examinations, sample collection
for various research projects, and record keeping. A research paper or case
