The E.E. Just Internship at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole provides Dartmouth students with a unique opportunity to work alongside leading scientists at the very institution where E.E. Just made many of his important scientific discoveries. Current undergraduate students can apply to spend any leave term participating in this fully-funded, residential internship. Fall, winter, and spring term internships are generally more available.
The E.E. Just Marine Biological Laboratory Internship provides the opportunity for a number of Dartmouth undergraduates to participate in an exciting program directed by the world-renowned MBL at Woods Hole. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to conduct research with world leaders in molecular and cell biology, neurobiology and behavior, physiology, developmental biology, and evolutionary biology. This is a great opportunity for the budding scientist curious about the life sciences.
Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), located in the picturesque village of Woods Hole Massachusetts, is dedicated to scientific discovery – exploring fundamental biology, understanding biodiversity and the environment. Resident scientists utilize the unique resources at the institution with a strategic focus on new discoveries emerging from the study of novel marine organisms, encompassing research in regenerative biology, neuroscience, sensory physiology, environmental science and comparative evolution and genomics.
In addition, faculty research centers on the study of microbiomes and microbial diversity and ecology in a variety of ocean and terrestrial habitats; cutting-edge imaging and computation, illuminating cellular function and previously unknown biology; and organismal adaptation and resilience in the face of global change and rapidly changing ecosystems.
A partnership between Dartmouth's E.E. Just Program and the MBL allows the MBL to welcome eligible undergraduates to Woods Hole during their 10-week "off-term," to work with resident scientists on a cutting-edge research project.
Dartmouth undergraduates with sufficient background in biology/chemistry and who are committed to the mission of the E.E. Just Program, are eligible to apply.
