UW’s Friday Harbor Labs Marine Science Programs – Spring and Summer

There are still spots open and the applications remain open in UW’s Friday Harbor Labs marine biology spring and summer programs:

Upcoming Spring and Summer Offerings

SPRING QUARTER (priority application deadline Jan 25, applications still being accepted)

Marine Zoology & Botany Quarter (15-16 credits)

This programs includes two courses that survey the groups of marine invertebrates and marine plants represented in the San Juan Archipelago and either a developmental biology course or research apprenticeships that focus on the effects of climate change on individual marine organisms and their communities.

Ocean Acidification Research Apprenticeship (15 credits)

Students will participate in an ocean acidification experiment using mesocosms, experimental enclosures in the harbor. Projects culminate with papers and presentations.

Elwha Dam Removal Impacts Research Apprenticeship (15 credits)

Students examine the impacts on the coastal and marine

ecosystems from removing two dams from the Elwha River, the biggest watershed on the Olympic Peninsula.

Beam Reach Program (18 credits)

Beam reach students study orcas and what it will take to save them. The program uses bioacoustic methods.

SUMMER QUARTER (priority application deadline Feb 1, applications accepted until classes fill)

Marine Biology Courses (9 credits)

Summer courses at FHL are ideal for advanced

undergraduates seeking practical courses on specific topics in marine biology, including marine invertebrates and mammals. All summer courses run for five-weeks.

· Marine Invertebrates (A-Term)

· Marine Mammals and Seabirds (B-term)

Internships (funded research)

FHL offers the Blinks Fellowship targeted at underrepresented populations and Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). Interns live on-site 8-12 weeks and receive a stipend.

September Scientific Diving Class (non-credit)

This 8-day class includes all the components required to achieve current scientific diving status. Prerequisite is 20 logged dives.

*All FHL programs can count for the marine biology minor. Email marbiol for questions about how FHL programs can count for different UW majors and minors.

Let me know if you need help with academic planning!

About GSS

The SEFS Graduate Student Symposium is a day dedicated to graduate students and their research. It is organized by and for graduate students, with the support of the Xi Sigma Pi Forestry Honor Society. At this day long symposium we highlight the work of our graduate students through presentations and a poster session. We also invite outside panelists (often former SEFS alumni) to present on a topic of interest. Ultimately, the symposium provides graduate students with the opportunity to present to their colleagues and professors, and gain valuable experience and feedback. This year’s theme is the Future of Forestry, so we will be asking panelists questions about what the future holds for the field, and we will hear from our future foresters and researchers at SEFS.

Join us on Friday, March 8th to show support for our school and to learn what the future holds for our field! If you are interested in submitting an abstract for a poster or presentation please contact Ellen Weir at ellenf3. There will be an award ceremony recognizing the best presenters and posters at the symposium.

Sincerely,

Miku Lenentine and Maria Sandercock
