About the Internship

IMET Undergraduate Summer Internship

June 6, 2022 - August 5, 2022

Apply by March 14, 2022 for best consideration

Marine and environmental sciences are crucial for the future of human health, food, water and energy. The nine-week internship connects you to a hands-on research project. Interns will receive an orientation to working in a lab, seminars on molecular techniques relevant to fisheries, aquaculture, energy production, and environmental research. Group activities will promote science communication, professional and life skill development.

This program is open to students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in marine and environmental sciences. IMET has over 20 years of experience mentoring a diverse cohort of undergraduate interns in this program. We are proud of our over 200 internship alumni, many of whom have gone on to earn an M.S. or Ph.D.

We plan to have in-person internships at IMET’s laboratories at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland, this summer. If COVID-19 restrictions prevent us from hosting in-person interns in the summer of 2022, we will do our best to adjust and will inform our applicants of any changes.

Internship Benefits: The internship includes a wage of $15 per hour for a 40-hour week. IMET will endeavor to provide summer housing for students from outside the Baltimore metropolitan area. MTA passes will be provided for local travel in the Baltimore area.

Internship Eligibility: The internship is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are enrolled as undergraduates in fields related to biological sciences and have a GPA of 3.0 or above.

Apply by March 14, 2022, for best consideration.
