Manatee Photo-identification Internships: The manatee photo-identification program is based in St. Petersburg, Florida at the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI). FWRI is the research arm of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), a state agency. FWRIís manatee photo-identification research focuses on long-term monitoring of Florida manatees in southwest Florida. The programís primary goal is to document individual manatees, which allows us to estimate annual adult survival and reproductive rates and to model population dynamics for state and federal assessments of Florida manatee status and recovery. Photo-identification data also provide insight regarding manatee movements, site fidelity, habitat use and behavior. Interns will primarily assist staff members with photographing manatees and collecting behavioral and environmental data at sites around Tampa Bay. Interns will also be responsible for a number of lab-based photo-identification tasks, such as downloading images, entering information into databases, scanning data sheets and matching images to known animals. Interns often collect data independently in the field, thus responsible, detail oriented applicants are encouraged to apply. Most field work is land-based; however, during the winter session opportunities are available to assist with boat-based manatee photo-identification. Other responsibilities may include but are not limited to data entry, assisting with manatee genetics research, special projects and outreach activities. This internship provides a great opportunity to gain valuable field and lab experience at a government agency. Two positions are available each year: one in winter (November to March) and one in summer (May to September). Start and end dates are flexible; however, a minimum commitment of four weekdays per week is required. Work hours are typically 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is no compensation for these internship positions and successful applicants will be responsible for their own housing and transportation to and from the institute. Positions are open until filled, and priority will be given to candidates who can commit for longer periods.

Biology teaching jobs for recent biology graduates: Southern Teachers Agency provides biology and life science vacancy listings from schools around the south. These jobs range from elementary-grade science through AP Biology. STA is the oldest teacher-placement service in America. We receive job listings from hundreds of PK-12 private schools around the South. Schools come to STA because they recognize the value of STAís help in recruiting & screening talented candidates. Certification is not required by private schools for many science teaching positions. Requirements: For most middle- and high-school biology or life-science positions, a bachelorís degree with a major in biology (or closely related field) is essential, but teacher certification is not. Of course, a degree in science education is highly desirable, as is a masterís degree in biology. Candidates should have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Some of these positions require prior teaching experience. Application process: Interested candidates should apply to Southern Teachers Agency by submitting a completed STA application (available online), along with a resume and cover letter to teachers@southernteachers.com.

Marine Field Research Opportunity with CMERA: The Coastal Marine Education and Research Academy (CMERA) is offering weekly sessions of natural science fieldresearch in the beautiful Clearwater, Florida area. Most other research or internship opportunities available to you this summer will require long hours of lab work with little to no field work. We are offering a 100% field research opportunity. Come spend as many weeks as you would like with CMERA during the summer and everyday will be spent on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico. While we conduct research on sharks and rays we will be catching and handling wild animals (sharks, stingrays, other fishes, crabs, and many other marine organisms) while learning about their anatomy and ecology. You will also attend lectures on our local ecosystems (sea grass beds, mangrove forests, coral reefs, artificial reefs, sand flats, and estuaries) and the animals that live in each habitat so that you will better recognize each aspect and animal as you experience it!! You will also learn about and gain experience in the difficulties of designing and conducting field research, which is especially useful for those of you pursuing a career in research or continuing on to graduate school. The hands-on experience you will gain during this program is applicable to all scientific careers! There are other opportunities available to you if you want to work in a lab this summer, but we are the only organization that offers 100% field experience!! While lab work is very important in science, we believe that in the natural science disciplines filed work is equally as important. We believe that to truly learn about an organism or an ecosystem you must spend time with it in its natural habitat. This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in any discipline of the natural sciences! We will provide email addresses, by request, of previous participants, if you would like to speak to a previous student. Go to www.coastalmera.com for more information and to apply for this amazing opportunity!! Space is limited! Come for 3 weeks and receive the 4th week free!
