Like Oysters? Like the Sea? Summer Job in Virginia

 

The Oyster Aquaculture Training Program (OAT) administered by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science Aquaculture Genetics and Breeding Technology Center is seeking another round of applicants for the 2013 season.  This is an opportunity to learn through an intensive, hands-on program, working alongside researchers throughout the 2013 oyster hatchery season - and getting paid while doing it.  This is not your typical VIMS summer job – it’s a unique opportunity not requiring any previous experience or education in biology.  This and more information is available at http://www.vims.edu/research/units/centerspartners/abc/oat/index.php .

Applications are accepted online at W&M (https://jobs.wm.edu)  and must include a cover letter stating interest in oyster aquaculture.  The cover letter is a key criterion for selection that must emphasize level of interest and relevance, not necessarily prior experience or education.  The Oyster Aquaculture Training Program limits the number of participants to 4 in order to provide a one-on-one learning environment.
Applications are due February 15, 2013.
