The Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center (MCERC) is seeking
individuals interested in fluke and fin matching for the Puerto Rico and
Turks and Caicos Humpback Whale Research projects. This project is a good
fit for an internship or research assistant position in Spring Hill,
Florida (Gulf Coast, north of Tampa).  NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED.
We will train all volunteers.

We have many photos that need to be matched and entered into our catalogs
as well as matching fins from other catalogs from the North Atlantic. This
is a volunteer position, valuable in gaining experience for marine mammal
research, and will take place in Spring Hill, Florida. The number of hours
must be at least 8 per week in 4 hour blocks. The days can vary throughout
the summer. It is possible to have more than one person work on this
project, as well as other data analysis related to marine mammal research.

Please note that positions with MCERC are used as a means to identify
undergrads who are interested in becoming field associated for winter
research positions collecting data and teaching interns upon completion of
a Bachelor of Science degree.

Interested? Please email a letter of interest and your CV/resume (as a
single pdf) to Nicole at Marine-Eco.org. Be sure to include your 1 year and 5
year goals related to marine mammal (or related) science.
