Canadian Associates of BIOS (CABIOS) Internship (closes 3/15/2019)

Canadian Associates of BIOS (CABIOS) Internship

Through the generosity of the Canadian Associates of BIOS (CABIOS), we will be awarding three x 12-week research internships in 2019.

CABIOS internships at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences provide Canadian students with the opportunity to design and conduct an independent research project, working directly with BIOS faculty mentors. Interns have the opportunity to participate in laboratory work, research cruises and/or other field work, depending on the research area.

CABIOS has sponsored many interns from Canadian institutions including Dalhousie University, University of Victoria, University of Guelph, Trent University, Carleton University, the University of Western Ontario and the University of Toronto.

Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at Canadian universities or Canadian students enrolled at universities abroad who intend to return to Canada upon completion of their degree are eligible to apply.

Internships are for 12 consecutive weeks. Start dates are flexible depending on mentor/intern schedules and nature of the project – you have the opportunity to advise your preferred start date on the application form.

Interns are required to give three presentations that outline their research topic, methods, and results, including a final presentation to BIOS faculty, staff and fellow interns. A final report must also be submitted following completion of the internship.

Application deadline is March 15, 2019.

CABIOS intern scholarships cover the cost of on-campus accommodation at BIOS and meals, as well as a small stipend plus a contribution towards research expenses. Travel expenses and medical/travel insurance are not covered and are the responsibility of the student.

Interns will also have the opportunity to participate in optional field and boat excursions to learn about Bermuda's natural history.
