The Perry Institute for Marine Science/Caribbean Marine Research Center (PIMS/CMRC) offers several internships at its field station on Lee Stocking Island (LSI) in the Bahamas. Highly motivated individuals seeking educational opportunities in marine science are invited to apply.

Interns will split their time between direct involvement in support of scientific research and operational support of science. Responsibilities will depend largely on the current projects being conducted during each period. Interns may be required to assist in procuring funds or grants to support their internship.

Interns will be selected for periods of at least 6 weeks for each semester (Spring, Summer, Fall). Summer session internships are from June to mid-July and mid-July to August. Successful applicants must present proof of DAN (Divers Alert Network) insurance or similar, a copy of a current medical exam, meet CMRC diving requirements, and present certification of basic open water SCUBA training and first aid.

Internships are non-salaried positions, however, interns will receive a fully or partially subsidized room (shared accommodation) and board. Transportation to Exuma International Airport (Georgetown, Bahamas) will be the responsibility of the chosen intern. Transportation from Georgetown to Lee Stocking Island will be provided by CMRC.
