One of the foremost challenges of our times is to understand the impacts of climate change on our coupled natural and human systems. This includes documenting and monitoring change, as well as predicting and mitigating future impacts of climate change on ecosystems and the communities that depend on them around the world. Very few places are witnessing the effects of climate change more intensely than the Gulf of Maine, which has been warming faster than 99.9% of the global ocean. As such, GMRI is strategically positioned to conduct cutting-edge research on this issue, and we welcome this opportunity to invite undergraduate students to take part in our work.

The GMRI REU Site will pair student interns with researchers based at GMRI, engaged in a broad range of ecosystem, oceanographic and economic studies. In consultation with their mentor, students will design and conduct a 10-week intensive, independent research project. This may involve field sampling, laboratory experiments, analysis of existing data sets, computational simulations, or some mix of these. At the end of the summer, students will present their findings at an in-house symposium drawing on analysis and communications skills honed throughout the summer.

This internship opportunity includes a stipend ($500/week for 10 weeks), support for housing costs, and a meal allowance.
