This is Jenna Wiley, a Research Associate I at Divers Alert Network. She's pictured here working on DAN's Project Dive Exploration doing field research at Innerspace 2012 (Grand Cayman). Once upon a time she was a DAN Research Intern.
Strong candidates for this competitive program will have excellent communication and organizational skills, meaningful personal accomplishments, an established commitment to diving and goals that would benefit from participation in the program. Whilst diving is not a required skill for this internship, candidates should be certified scuba divers.
The program runs primarily from late May through August, and interns are recruited largely from undergraduate students at colleges and universities across the United States (post-graduate students, students from other countries and periods other than summer will be considered, if appropriate). Following an initial week of training at DAN headquarters, research interns are placed with host facilities, including DAN, where they will participate in projects matched to their interests and ability. The range may include field, laboratory and/or epidemiological studies. Most research interns work closely with mentor experts to maximize their learning opportunities.
