Marine Technician MATE/UNOLS Internship

Monday, December 05, 2016

Announcement from Dr. Nandita Sarkar:

The Marine Advanced Technology Education Center (MATE) and UNOLS are excited to announce that applications for the 2017 MATE/UNOLS long-term Marine Technician (MT) internship are now being accepted!  Unlike the short-term MATE MT internships that are designed to expose students to the field of Marine Technology, this longer internship is designed for soon to graduate or recently graduated students who are very interested in pursuing a career as a Marine Technician.  The intensive 6-month program combines at-sea and shoreside components to help the intern gain more experience with shipboard science support instrumentation and equipment while helping him/her develop key skill sets necessary for technical work. 

The exact internship details are still being worked on, but it is expected that the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) and Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) will serve as joint hosts for the 2017 internship. The selected applicant will start the internship at BIOS in early April and spend approximately three months at each location, helping on ship and shore-side as necessary. During the internship, the intern will be paid a stipend of $500/week and will have have all travel and accommodation expenses covered. 

For more information about the program and to apply, please read the instructions and fill out the application form on our website at:
Applications, along with all supporting documents, are due by January 6th, 2017, 3pm PST.
