Devereux Slough Internship

Field researcher needed

Two internships are available as part of a long-term monitoring and ecological study of the Devereux Slough ecosystem. Devereux slough, located at the University managed Coal Oil Point Reserve, is a seasonally flooded coastal wetland. The internship will consist of weekly monitoring of water quality, fish surveys, data entry, data analysis, and updating educational postings. Most of the work will be conducted in the field and give participant ample opportunity to gain experience in numerous field sampling techniques.

The intern must be a UCSB student, able to commitment to a regular schedule of 3-4 hours/week, reliable, independent, and willing to learn. The project is funded by the Coastal Fund, and the intern will receive a $300 stipend upon successful completion of the Fall internship requirements.
