Internship Opportunity at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI)

The Larval Fish Ecology lab at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is looking for 2-3 interns to help with our research on larvae of river herring, coral reef fish, and sand lance. Responsibilities of these interns would be to pull fish larvae from plankton samples, measure larvae through a microscope, and possibly help out with fieldwork, which will include 1-day oceanographic cruises in the region.

There is some training involved, so we would prefer individuals who would be able to commit to at least 20 hrs per week for several weeks.

The opportunities are available immediately.

These would be unpaid internships, and prospective individuals need to be at least 18 years old, since samples are preserved in ethanol.

Interested individuals should send an email to Joel Llopiz ( expressing interest, as well as a brief summary of their educational background and career interests and goals. This is a great opportunity for college students (and soon-to-be college students) to be able to gain research experience, and would look great on a resume/CV.
