The Science Exchange Internship Positions
Application Deadline: until filled
Internship Dates: 6 to 8 weeks in the field, dates flexible from June – Sept 2018
Locations: Coastal sites in Mexico and Costa Rica
Our non-profit organization is currently interviewing potential interns to work on field research projects related to sea turtle conservation. Each intern will be trained on their individual research topic, for example: marine pollution surveys, climate change impacts on nesting beaches, nearshore water quality testing, underwater species richness surveys, among others. Interns are required to complete a scientific paper and present their results locally. We mentor students through international conference presentations and publications. As an optional add-on the internship qualifies for at least 3 units of transferable biology credit at San Diego State University.
The internships are a great introduction to a career in international field work and a major resume booster.
• A minimum of 18 years of age. Undergraduate and graduate students in any major (or gap year students) who are mature, flexible, responsible, and adventurous are encouraged to apply.

• Conversational English required. Conversational Spanish highly encouraged.
• Ability to work independently, handle tropical weather (heat, humidity, rain), a love for insects and other wild animals, and willingness to work with their hands.
• Travel is paid by the intern, partial scholarships are available through The Science Exchange
