Research Experience for Undergraduates: Gulf of Maine Research Institute

Applications due February 15th

The GMRI REU Site will pair students with researchers based at GMRI, engaged in a broad range of fishery ecosystem and climate adaptation studies. In consultation with their mentor, students will design and conduct a 10-week intensive, independent research project. This may involve field sampling, laboratory experiments, analysis of existing data sets, computational simulations, or some mix of these. At the end of the summer, students will present their findings at an in-house symposium drawing on analysis and communications skills honed throughout the summer.

This internship opportunity includes a stipend ($500/week for 10 weeks), support for housing costs, and meal allowance.  

Who Should apply:   Undergraduate students from a broad range of institutions and backgrounds including two- and four-year colleges and underserved communities (e.g., minorities, students with disabilities, first-generation college students, veterans).

Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP)

Applications due February 13th

The Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP) is a multi-institutional program between the 6 Woods Hole scientific institutions and the academic partner, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. It is a 10-week program designed primarily for college juniors and seniors from underrepresented groups in marine and ocean sciences who want to spend a summer gaining practical experience in marine and environmental science. The program consists of a four-week course and a ten-week research project – all in Woods Hole.

Who should apply:   PEP recruits from all backgrounds, but especially from minority groups that are under-represented in marine and environmental sciences. African American, Hispanic American, Native American, Asian Pacific Island, and Alaska Native students are particularly encouraged to apply.  Priority is given to entering juniors and seniors majoring in the natural sciences or engineering, mathematics, or social sciences. Applicants must also have completed some course work in either oceanography, biology, or marine and/or environmental science

Scientists, scallop industry team up to study ocean acidification impacts

Scientists, scallop industry team up to study ocean acidification impacts

NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

Guided by input from fishers, a team of scientists will bring together computer modeling and experiments to inform management policies for Northeast scallop fisheries facing the threat of ocean acidification.

Researchers from the University of Connecticut, NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC), Commercial Fisheries Research Foundation (CFRF), and Rutgers University will work together to study this economically and culturally significant resource for coastal communities in New England, with support from NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Program. Worth more than $500 million per year, scallops are the second most valuable fishery in the Northeast and are particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification.

Assessing Vulnerability to a Changing Ocean: Investigating impact and option for adaptation

Assessing Vulnerability to a Changing Ocean: Investigating impact and option for adaptation

NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

In certain areas of the US, marine resources and the communities that depend on them are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of ocean and coastal acidification along with other ocean changes. The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program recently awarded funding for three regional vulnerability assessment projects in the Chesapeake Bay, Northeast US and US West Coast. The projects bring together oceanographic, fisheries and aquaculture data and social science to assess vulnerability of dependent communities and industries, anticipate challenges they may face, and explore adaptations options.
