Application Deadline: March 18, 2016

The University of Florida’s Nature Coast Biological Station, located in Cedar Key, FL is seeking several motivated undergraduate interns to fill 6-week, full-time (or 12-week, half-time) internship positions. Interns will be hosted by one of NCBS’s state, federal, or UF partners to work on widely varying projects in the Nature Coast region. Applicants should carefully read through the project descriptions (on the NCBS website), as each project is slightly different in the skills and duties required. These internships offer excellent opportunities for students to gain experience in academic research, extension, or state/federal agency settings.

2017 Nature Coast Biological Station Summer Internship Program

This internship program is intended to give undergraduate students at UF an opportunity for real-world experience in research and/or extension activities.  Selected students will work alongside practicing researchers and natural resource managers.  These internships are six weeks, from approximately June 1 to July 15 (depending on host needs), and interns are paid $9.00 per hour for 40 hours a week.  The hosts include UF/IFAS faculty as well as state and federal agency partners.   Interns will participate in an orientation meeting with NCBS staff and hosts, as well as a summer wrap up workshop where interns will summarize their experiences.  This is a great opportunity for students to enhance their skill sets and explore career options in natural resource fields.  Application materials and host information for the 2017 program are found below. These internships are open to current undergraduates and recent graduates (within the past year) from the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, University of Florida.

Applications are due by April 3rd, 2017.
