MBARI Starts Summer Internship Program


MBARI’s summer internship program began earlier this month, with 18 students arriving from across the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, and Germany.

In front of MBARI’s research vessel Rachel Carson, this year’s interns are (from top left, clockwise) Jennifer Durden, Nathan Reed, William Symons, Corinna Breusing, Cordelia Sanborn-Marsh, Ben Yair Raanan, Laughlin Barker, Jon Steck, Kate Thomas, Lisa Ziccarelli, Ashley Maitland, Katherine Willis, Zena Jensvold, William Truong, Ben Burford, Vanessa Izquierdo Pena, and Jesse Lafian.

The summer internship is an opportunity for college students to work alongside MBARI staff on a project for ten weeks. The interns are working on various topics, including ocean acidification, submarine canyon processes, chemical sensors, and bioluminescence and jellies.

Ben Burford, a student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, is returning to the internship program this year as intern logistical coordinator. He commented, “The MBARI summer internship program has proven to be a truly life-changing experience. The opportunity to learn from and work with the brilliant scientists and engineers of this wonderful institution has provided me with invaluable skills, experience, and connections. I am thrilled to be here and am looking forward to enjoying this summer with an exceptional group of talented young people!”
