      Location: Washington, DC



      Description

      Oceana is working to convince the U.S. Congress, federal agencies, regional fishery councils, state governments, and international entities to take proactive measures to restore and sustain marine mammal and sea turtle populations.



      We are seeking motivated individuals to be science interns in our Washington, D.C. office. Oceana science interns will work closely with professional staff and assist the science team with their substantive work in support of these advocacy efforts. The successful applicant(s) will spend a considerable portion of their time undertaking research and writing projects related to protected species issues. There will be opportunities to accompany staff to Congressional and Administration meetings, attend hearings, and network with other ocean advocates.

      The ideal candidates should possess:



      ► Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in biology or marine science

      ► A good understanding of US marine fisheries management through education and/or experience

      ► Knowledge of the Marine Mammal Protection Act and Endangered Species Act

      ► Excellent research, writing, and communication skills

      ► Ability to work effectively in a team effort

      ► Energy, enthusiasm, and a strong desire to learn

      ► Ability to work independently on discrete projects

      ► A strong interest in environmental issues

      ► GIS proficiency is a plus



      Oceana prefers that science interns be available to work 30 hours a week for 3-6 months. Stipends are available. Oceana accepts science interns who receive academic credit for their internship. Both recent graduates and graduate students are encouraged to apply.
