2022 Internship Conditions

We are looking for two (2) interns, both on the island of New Providence. Successful applicants should expect to learn about conservation in The Bahamas, including organism identification (class time) and hands-on experiences (field work). Opportunities for travel to Family Islands to assist with research MAY be available depending on funding and other factors.

Additionally, due to the ongoing global pandemic of COVID-19, safety regulations including mandatory masking, social distancing, regular sanitization, and use of outdoor spaces will be enforced.

The 2022 Summer Science Internship will run from June 20th to July 29th, 2022. Dates, workload, and number of internship opportunities available are all subject to change, and preference will be given to applicants who have completed at least two years of tertiary education.

Would you be willing and able to travel for this internship if the opportunity presents itself?
