The MATE Center and the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2015 MATE/UNOLS Six-Month Internship through January 5, 2015.
Location: R/V Oceanus at Oregon State University
Full Description: This spring/summer (approximately March 20 – September 25, 2015), the MATE Center and the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) fleet will sponsor one marine technical internship onboard the research vessel R/V Oceanus (http://ceoas.oregonstate.edu/oceanus/). Interns will work with marine technicians on shore and at sea, learning how to operate and maintain a variety of scientific and navigational equipment in support of shipboard scientific research. The internship will begin and end in Corvallis, Oregon. The exact schedule through September will be determined before the acceptance date, but will involve work on the R/V Oceanus and at their on-shore facilities. Internship projects will be dependent on the funded science but previous interns have worked on cruises to support science ranging from chemical oceanography, marine biology, GIS/bathymetric surveys (seafloor mapping), geological studies, work with ROVs and much more! The position will last 6 months, and students will receive a stipend of $500 per week, reimbursement for travel expenses, and on-station housing while ashore.

MATE internships focus on technology and scientific support of marine research rather than the academic research. This internship specifically aims to help recruit and train a new marine technician for the US Academic Research Fleet. The MATE Center encourages a diverse pool of applicants and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, or age.
