Internship Opportunities/ Post- Baccalaureate Programs
October 4-7, 2018.
As part of efforts to increase the diversity and accessibility of graduate studies in ecology and evolutionary biology, Princeton EEB encourages students to apply to the 2018 EEB Scholars Program, in which talented students (EEB Scholars) will be selected from a national applicant pool and invited to Princeton University for a weekend program designed to give them the tools to confidently apply to graduate schools, as well as familiarize them with Princeton’s own department. The program will focus on the graduate application process, connecting with EEB faculty and students, and highlighting Scholars’ academic achievements. Students with backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM are particularly encouraged to apply to this scholastic program.
Application deadline is July 15, 2018.
Our internships offer the opportunity to gain important skills in conservation work. You’ll learn firsthand how a biodiversity advocacy organization works to mobilize public support, influence public policy and undertake ecological restoration. We have a small staff, so you’ll be an important part of the SWEC team.
Some of our internships pay a small stipend, others are unpaid depending upon our current staff resources. Either way, you’ll receive great work experience and possibly academic credit. We require a 3-6 month commitment, working at least 12 hours per week on a flexible schedule.
We are looking for interns who have excellent written and verbal communication skills, relevant coursework and/or experience, good interpersonal skills for public outreach, the ability to work independently, and a strong commitment to SWEC’s mission of biodiversity protection.
NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. AN REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
