Summer research internship offers 100% field work with marine organisms in Myrtle Beach.

Come spend as many weeks as you would like with CMERA this summer and everyday will be spent on a boat in local estuaries catching and handling wild animals (sharks, stingrays, other fishes, crabs, and many other marine organisms) while learning about their anatomy and ecology.

Here is an internship from the Coastal Marine Education and Research Association (CMERA) in Myrtle Beach, SC. Looks like a lot of fun! Money disclosure: $700/week, but there are scholarships available to lighten the load. Go for as many weeks as you want. Here is some official info:


Want to hold sharks, stingrays, and other sea life this summer while advancing your interest in natural science, padding your resume, receiving credit hours (see below), and having tons of fun?  Here is your opportunity!!!

The Coastal Marine Education and Research Association (CMERA) is offering weekly sessions of natural science field research in the beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area.  Most other research or internship opportunities available to you this summer will require long hours of lab work with little to no field work.  We are offering a 100% field research opportunity.  Come spend as many weeks as you would like with CMERA this summer and everyday will be spent on a boat in local estuaries catching and handling wild animals (sharks, stingrays, other fishes, crabs, and many other marine organisms) while learning about their anatomy and ecology.  You will also learn about and gain experience in the difficulties of designing and conducting field research, which is especially useful for those of you pursuing a career in research or continuing on to graduate school.  The hands-on experience you will gain during this program is applicable to all scientific careers!

There are other opportunities available to you if you want to work in a lab this summer, but we are the only organization that offers 100% field experience!!  While lab work is very important in science, we believe that in the natural science disciplines filed work is equally as important.  We believe that to truly learn about an organism or an ecosystem you must spend time with it in its natural habitat.  This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in any discipline of the natural sciences!

Go to www.coastalmera.com for more information and to apply for this amazing opportunity!!  Space is limited! If you would like to bring a group, please inquire about week availability.  Some weeks only have 1 or 2 spaces available.

Come for 3 weeks and receive the 4th week free!

We are currently offering NEEDS-BASED scholarships.  The scholarship application is attached to this email.
