The Chemical Ecology Program uses advanced analytical techniques to investigate all aspects of water quality in lakes, rivers, estuaries and the coastal marine environment. Ongoing projects include evaluation of water quality in relation to harmful algal blooms and evaluation of nutrients in relation to water quality regulations. Interns assist with field collection of samples, data entry and laboratory analysis of water quality parameters. College students with chemistry laboratory coursework and computer experience preferred.


This program accepts internship applications year round.
