Gain hands-on experience in a dynamic environment with guidance from a mentor who is a member of our Research staff.
Our Research team conducts research in many aspects of marine animal health, husbandry, and ecology. This is accomplished through detailed analysis of behavior, specimens, data records and a combination of field, in-house, and laboratory-based research projects that focus on animal behavior, ecology, infectious disease, neuro-immunology, and physiology.
The internship program reflects our mission, "to inspire people to care for and protect our ocean planet through education, research and exploration."  Internships are available for the fall, spring and summer.
Interns have the opportunity to attend weekly educational seminars, receive feedback from supervisors, and work on independent projects to enhance their knowledge and resumes.

Application deadlines are as follows:
Spring internships (Jan-May): September 30
Summer internships (May-Aug): January 31
Fall internships (Sept-Dec): May 31

Please see the Mystic Aquarium website for more information on the internship program and instructions on completing an application.

Requested Requirements
The applicant must be enrolled in or recently graduated from college in order to participate. Internships are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Students can receive academic credit from their school for the internship, but it is the student's responsibility to arrange for the credit.
All internships are unpaid. Research and Water Quality Lab internships vary in number of days per week and the number of hours per week. They may be as much as 40 hours and five days per week or they may be less. A minimum of 16 hours per week is required. The time commitment involved can be discussed during the interview process and will be consistent most weeks.
Most internships follow the college year (Spring, Summer and Fall semesters). Dates of the program may be adjusted to fit other school calendars or programs.
