Seasonal Assistantships

Learn about freshwater fish conservation and recirculation systems for conservation aquaculture in this paid assistantship with freshwater biologists from the Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute. In addition to providing daily care for endangered species that we rear for reintroduction projects, interns help us with freshwater conservation projects in both the field and the lab.  The internship starts in late May, and interns will work at least 10 weeks, including some weekends.  Applications are due by February 28, 2015 with interviews to follow.  >> Download your application here
