The Steneck lab is looking for summer interns (June – August) to assist in a multifaceted study of the American lobster along the coast of Maine. Field work will include scuba diving (for certified scuba divers), small boat operations, underwater video surveys with a tethered ROV and sonar seafloor mapping equipment. Lab work will involve data analyses and working with Maine’s Department of Marine Resources to build our lobster biology database.
Special preference will be given to students who are AAUS certified scuba divers (not required for this internship). Experience with cold water diving, boat operations, and/or data analysis in programs such as Excel, R, or ArcGIS are favorable.
