Interns and students
Internships and studentships must be one month's minimum duration to allow you time to get to grips with the local environment and subject material.
Both Students and Interns are involved in specific research projects, with the expectation that they will produce a short report on their project at the end of their stay. Interns have a higher volunteer component.
Interns may be working with visiting scientists, or they may be working by themselves under the supervision of the Director. The research projects may be new, or they may be projects on which previous interns or researchers have been working. Once again, project possibilities are very wide ranging, but the realities of the local environment and demands at the station may present certain limitations. We will work with you on identifying feasible projects and research designs at the time that you contact us with a proposal. Flexibility is key, and conditions can change in less than a moments notice here in the tropics. It does help if you had an idea of a research area!
It is difficult to determine specifics of research projects in advance - weather and the Director's workload, so it is better if your project relates to something we are doing at the time.
