Center for Coastal Margin Observation & Prediction Summer Internship Program
CMOP interns engage in leading-edge research to understand and predict biological, chemical and physical processes of the river-to-ocean ecosystem, contributing data and analysis that provide guidance for sustainable ecosystem management. Interns work closely with senior scientists, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students on interdisciplinary projects ranging from physical and biogeochemical oceanography, molecular biology, analytical chemistry, marine genomics, ocean engineering, and computer science. Students participate in a range of activities including oceanographic cruises, field trips, and a range of seminars on scientific themes, career opportunities and scientific ethics.
