The Sharklab offers subsidized internships to persons 18 or older who wish to learn field research skills. Our approach is to integrate students with active marine scientists from around the globe. We thus support about ten international interns monthly, for periods up to 12 months. Interns experience a unique opportunity to take part in our intensive field research, learning practical and theoretical skills that will enhance their prospects as future scientists. The volunteers live at the station with two fulltime PhD students and six staff members. The Sharklab depends on the efforts of dedicated volunteers to accomplish our research and the station has hosted over 800 interns from around the globe since its inception.
