Undergraduate Research Internship Opportunities

Mook Sea Farm & SEANET

Two ocean acidification-related undergraduate research internship opportunities are avaiable this summer at Mook Sea Farm in Walpole, ME supported by SEANET.  These opportunities are open to undergraduate students from or attending university in Maine.

The Aquaculture in changing waters: Impacts of ocean acidification on juvenile oysters opportunity is directly related to ocean acidification and the aquaculture industry.  The second internship, Environmental influence on larval bivalve settlement success, will consider the effects of several environmental variables, including pCO2, pH, and saturation state, on larval bivalve settlement in a field study.

Applications will be reviewed beginning February 18. 2019. Please direct questions to me, Meredith White, meredith.megan.white@gmail.com.

Ocean Acidification Outreach Internship

NOAA and USCB Marine Science Institute

The Ocean Acidification Outreach Intern will work with scientists and communicators to create regionally specific “Ocean Acidification Outreach In A Box” toolkits tailored for diverse stakeholders who want to learn about the latest OA research. These toolkits will include outreach materials most appropriate for various US regional (Alaska, Pacific Northwest, Southwest, Southeast, Northeast and Pacific Islands) audiences and venues and will include actions that audiences can take to adapt to and mitigate this environmental change. By equipping OA scientists and communicators around the nation with effective, consistent and solution-focused messages that make ocean acidification understandable, stakeholders will better understand OA science and be empowered with stewardship actions.

M.S. Level Position focused on “Identifying Factors that May Exacerbate Coastal Acidification in Pacific Northwest Estuaries”

US EPA

The position is through Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) and is with the U.S. Environmental Protection, National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory located in Newport, Oregon on the campus of the Hatfield Marine Science Center. 

This individual selected for this position will work on a research project focused on identifying the causes of coastal acidification in Pacific Northwest estuaries and the coastal ocean.  Specifically, we are tracking the watershed and oceanic inputs of nitrogen and carbon to Tillamook Estuary through field sampling of nutrients, stable isotopes of nitrogen and carbon (of nitrate, ammonia, dissolved inorganic and organic carbon, and particulate organic carbon) with the goal of identifying local factors which are influencing carbonate chemistry and oxygen dynamics within the estuary.

ACCRETE Internship Opportunity

NOAA/AOML and University of Miami's Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (CIMAS)

ACCRETE (Acidification, Climate, and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team) at NOAA/AOML and theUniversity of Miami’s Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric
Sciences (CIMAS) is accepting applications for a one-year internship position, to be offered annually to a highly motivated recent college graduate interested in gaining experience in the fields of coral reef ecology and ocean acidification research.

ACCRETE is actively researching how climate change and ocean acidification will be, and already are affecting the construction (coral growth, calcification) and breakdown (bioerosion, dissolution) of coral reef ecosystems, as well as the associated ramifications these processes have for ecosystem function. The successful applicant will work with a diverse team of scientists, postdocs, and students at NOAA and UM laboratories in Miami, Florida.

During the year, the intern will gain extensive hands-on experience with laboratory and field research including, but not limited to, experiments
conducted in the CIMAS Experimental Reef Labanalysis of carbonate chemistry for ocean acidification research, scuba diving and fieldwork in the Florida Keys, involvement in the National Coral Reef Monitoring PlanCT scanning of coral and reef frameworks, as well as 3D scanning and printing for scientific instrument development.

The position will be supervised by Dr. Ian Enochs and at the conclusion of the year-long internship, the successful applicant will be expected to present a talk on their work. Current AAUS authorization is required for participation in scuba diving operations. The position will be paid hourly, totaling roughly $30k over the year.

Please send a CV and letter of interest to ian.enochs@noaa.gov, with “ACCRETE internship application” in the subject line. Applications must be received by June 9th.

Marine Scientist Position with focus on Ocean Acidification

State of Washington Department of Ecology

The Environmental Assessment Program (EAP) program within the Department of Ecology is looking to fill a Marine Scientist (Natural Resource Scientist 2) position. Applications are due April 24, 2018.

This position is located at our Headquarters Building in Lacey, WA but conducts work statewide. This position is responsible for conducting marine water quality monitoring, with a focus on ocean acidification. Responsibilities include implementing the addition of ocean acidification-relevant parameters to Ecology's marine waters monitoring program in Puget Sound. This position is also responsible for oceanographic sampling gear preparation and use, instrument calibration (CTD and other electronic sensors), laboratory sample analyses, data analysis, and report writing. The data collected is used to determine the status and trends of marine water quality in context to ocean acidification in Washington state.
