The National Marine Mammal Foundation (NMMF) is offering an internship
opportunity to train with our Charleston, South Carolina field team in
conducting bottlenose dolphin studies along the South Carolina and Georgia
coasts. The internship will involve a commitment of 20-30 hours per week on
average extending over a 15-week period. The anticipated start date is
February 4, 2019, but we have some flexibility in the start date.

Duties will include participation as a member of the field team for
boat-based surveys, data entry, and photo-analysis using finFindR and
FinBase software. Some regional travel (within driving distance) may be
required. The internship offers an excellent opportunity for qualified and
motivated individuals to obtain training in photo-ID field and laboratory
methods under the mentorship of experienced dolphin researchers.

NMMF will provide a $3000 stipend for the duration of the internship.  The
intern will be responsible for their own living expenses and transportation
to/from the NMMF office. Any required travel outside of the Charleston area
will be covered by the NMMF.

Ideal applicants will be advanced undergraduates or recent graduates of a
scientifically-oriented university program in marine science, biology, or a
related field.  Preference will be given to applicants with well-developed
computer skills and boat-based field experience.

Once you apply through the NMMF website, please submit a letter of
interest, transcripts of university coursework, and two letters of
recommendation from professors or research supervisors who are familiar
with the applicant’s scholarship, research skills, and work habits relevant
to the internship to hr at nmmf.org. We anticipate filling this internship
position by January, 11, 2019.
