Looking for a “Coral” Internship?

Posted on Nov 16, 2015 by in The OFI Blog |


The National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) is offering a minimum two month internship working with DNA of marine invertebrates.

Interns will assist in surveys of the marine biodiversity (marine invertebrates) across the pH gradient by DNA barcoding the organisms (DNA isolation, amplification and sequencing) and by analyzing and scoring photographs collected during previous field trips at the CO2 seeps.

Most of the work would be done in the molecular laboratory and the computer room at the Natural History building located on the Mall is Washington DC, but some experiments will be done at the Museum Support Center in Suitland, MD.
