The Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) Marine Mammal Research Program seeks a
motivated undergraduate or post BS-level intern to assist in data
collection and sample processing related to ongoing marine mammal research
projects. Successful applicants will assist graduate students and staff
with various aspects of field and lab research on dolphin and manatee
habitat use in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Field work will primarily
include assisting with bottlenose dolphin photo-ID surveys, with potential
for cetacean and manatee stranding response with the Alabama Marine Mammal
Stranding Network (ALMMSN).  Field work will involve long hours on a boat
in various weather conditions including heat, humidity, and rain. Lab
responsibilities will include sample processing, data entry, and assisting
with DISL’s Manatee Sighting Network (DISL/MSN) operations, including
processing sighting reports, distribution of education and outreach
materials, and participation in outreach events.  DISL/MSN is a
citizen-science based network to collect data on manatees in Alabama and
nearby waters.  You can learn more about DISL’s Marine Mammal Research

extend the internship depending on applicant fit and funding. Applicants
