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 is 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 most of the year with veterinary residents, researchers, and student externs. This Intern position is scheduled to start approx. August 1, 2019 and is for a one-year term, with the possibility of a second year.

The Marine Mammal Center Veterinary Science department includes multiple full time veterinarians and veterinary technicians, a pathologist, and research and rescue staff. This position reports to the Staff Veterinarian and also works closely with the entire Veterinary Science team. The Veterinary Intern’s responsibilities include providing medical management and care 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 project and paper or case report is expected to be completed during the internship.

If qualified, applicants should submit the following materials:

• A cover letter/statement outlining the applicant's goals and interests in the area of aquatic animal medicine.
