The Sandin Lab at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography is a marine ecology lab with a focus on tropical coral reef ecosystems. We are currently looking for motivated undergraduate students to assist with the 100 Island Challenge Project. More information about the project can be found on 100islandchallenge.org.
Primary duties include assisting with data processing by helping to annotate large scale imagery of benthic communities on coral reefs. Volunteers can expect to learn coral taxonomy, as well as the use of photo analysis software. We are offering positions starting over the summer or next year, with the potential for mentorship in research for credit, e.g. 199, for qualified students.
To apply, please fill out the attached application below along with a copy of your resume or CV to Nicole Pedersen.
