Interns in the At-Sea Technical Internship Program work as marine technicians aboard sea-going research vessels that are part of the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS), the United States Coast Guard, and the Ocean Exploration Trust.

The MATE Center and the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) are accepting applications for the 2014 MATE/UNOLS six-month internship through December 2, 2013.

Applicants must be ready to enter the job market in the field of marine technology with academic studies complete or near complete. This is an incredible opportunity to work onboard two different vessels in different parts of the country and be exposed to a wide range of technology and equipment.

Early January – June 2014, the MATE Center and the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) fleet will sponsor one marine technical internship onboard two research vessels: R/V Thompson and R/V Kilo Moana.

Internship projects will be dependent on the funded science but previous interns have worked on projects 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.
