Description

STRI is dedicated to understanding tropical nature through research. Research is a fundamental enterprise that is rooted in simple human curiosity. By observing patterns in nature, by imagining the possible processes that could explain their origin and persistence, by doing experiments or making more observations that cast doubt on some of these possibilities and affirm others, we arrive at an ever changing and ever better understanding of how and why nature is as we see it. This spirit of discovery and the quest to understand unite STRI researchers, whether they are senior permanent staff or short-term student visitors just beginning their careers. 

Interns will be selected based on merit and potential for achievement. However, placement depends upon the availability of a match between the applicant's interest and a new or ongoing project supervised by a STRI staff scientist. Applicants are encouraged to directly contact potential supervisors. Staff research profiles and contact information can be found here.

Eligibility

Internships are intended for undergraduates, recent graduates (post-bachelor’s) and beginning graduate students interested in advancing their professional goals and intellectual skills under the guidance of a scientist working at STRI.
