The 2016 PIFSC Young Scientist Opportunity (PYSO) program website has been updated with the four new projects available this summer.
- 2016 Pacific Islands Deep Sea Coral Exploration Story Map
- Growth Rate, Residency Times, and Foraging Ecology of Juvenile Green Turtles in the Oceanic and Nearshore Waters of the Hawaiian Archipelago
- Synthesis of Blue Marlin (Makaira nigricans) Recreational Fishery and Biological Information from Hawaii
- Scientific Communications and Outreach for Coral Reefs in the Main Hawaiian Islands
Since 2009, PIFSC has hosted between one and four summer interns as part of the PYSO program. These interns have worked on projects ranging from the economic uncertainties of the Honolulu fish auction, to calcium carbonate deposition rates on coral reefs. During the summer internship, the interns will be mentored by a staff scientist and have the opportunity to interact with other NOAA interns that are being hosted at the IRC on Ford Island.
Please share the link with any eligible undergraduate students, or institutions, that you think may be interested.
We are accepting applications from prospective interns during the month of February.
