Internship: Larval lobster survival in changing ocean waters
We are seeking an undergraduate or recent graduate to assist in marine science research projects this summer at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center (DMC). The internship is supported by NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Program, the Northeast Sea Grant Consortium and UMaine student research funds. This collaboration among scientists at UMaine, Bigelow Laboratory and the University of Prince Edward Island focuses on understanding how ocean warming and acidification influence the coastal ecology and economy of the Gulf of Maine, with particular emphasis on the growth and development of the American lobster. The intern will primarily be involved in laboratory-based research projects exploring changes in larval lobster survival, physiology and behavior in response to elevated temperature and CO2. The intern will be based in the Wahle lab and have the opportunity to participate in concurrent field- and lab-based projects led by graduate students in and will interact with collaborating researchers at Bigelow Laboratory.
