Dear FISH-SCI List,

We are seeking 2 motivated and enthusiastic interns in Dr. Ron Baker’s lab based at the 
Dauphin Island Sea Lab ( The positions will be full-time 6-month internships 
with possible extensions based on performance. Preferred start date is April 1, 2022 but is 
flexible through May 2022. Salary is $12.50/hr and low-cost housing is available on the 
DISL campus outside the months of May-July.

Interns will be involved in sample collection and processing, and will be trained in living 
shoreline monitoring techniques. Monitoring will include sampling for fisheries species, 
marsh vegetation and sediment composition, benthic flora and fauna, oyster reef 
monitoring, and topographic/bathymetric mapping. There may also be opportunities to learn 
other ecological sampling and processing techniques, including maintaining acoustic receiver 
arrays which track fine-scale fish habitat usage, multistressor mesocosm tank experiments, 
and other fisheries sampling techniques and subsequent lab processing such as drop 
sampling, acoustic tagging fish, and underwater video. Field research will be mostly along 
the Alabama coast with some field days characterized by long days of physically demanding 
fieldwork and potentially arduous conditions. In addition, interns will be encouraged to 
attend seminars on current topics in marine science hosted at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab 
and at the University of South Alabama.

Recent graduates (<2 years post-undergraduate science degree) are preferred.  These 
internships are available to U.S. citizens and residents only. Interested applicants should 
email materials to Dr. Baker by February 15th, 2022. Please use the email subject “LS 
intern” and include:
1) a cover letter with a description of your research interests as they relate to this project,
2) your 2-page CV including contact details for 3 references, and
3) unofficial academic transcripts.

Please title all documents using the format “LastName_DocumentName”, for example 
“Rodriguez_CoverLetter”. Please direct questions regarding eligibility or the application 
process to Dr. Baker.

Please circulate within your networks and to all who may be interested.
