Totally Radical Internship Opportunity at Oregon State U's Marine Lab

Check this out- I did an internship at Oregon State U's marine lab when I was in college and it was AWESOME. Majestic rugged coastline, badass boats and sea creatures, all the science you can handle, and the Rogue Brewery is right across the street:

Are you a Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Computer Science major? Take advantage of the opportunity to gain research experience while exploring the exciting interdisciplinary field of marine and estuarine science research!

Oregon State University is offering summer marine science internships to 20 college students through its Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport and College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences in Corvallis. The 10-week program matches qualified students with faculty mentors representing a wide range of ocean science research interests, including: Cetacean/Fisheries Conservation Genetics; Marine Aquaculture; Physical, Chemical and Biological Oceanography; Marine Geology; Coastal Ecology; Marine Renewable Energy; Marine Biological Invasions; Satellite Remote Sensing and many others.

The Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) is a 49-acre research and education campus on Oregon's central coast, with modern laboratory facilities, a world-class marine science library, and six state and federal agencies co-located on site with easy access to the "living laboratory" of Oregon's coastal estuaries and the ocean. Scientists representing the U.S. Fish & Wildlife, USDA, USGS, EPA, NOAA Fisheries, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife serve with OSU faculty as mentors in the REU program. Situated on the south shore of Newport’s picturesque Yaquina Bay, the HMSC provides easy access to the ocean and estuary for field research and recreational activities alike. On the OSU main campus in Corvallis, the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences trains the next generation of Biological, Chemical, Geological and Physical Oceanographers and Earth System Scientists, offering opportunities or interdisciplinary research in world-class labs and facilities.
