The University of Miami’s Shark Research and Conservation Program in collaboration with Field School will be conducting 3 at sea research expeditions from a 55’ custom live-aboard vessel. We are seeking applications from motivated and aspiring conservation biologists to join our team.
Science & Conservation: The research mission is to assess the ecology of sharks and their ecosystem impacts across the Florida Keys reef tract and whether these processes vary in relation to protected areas, including national parks and no-take marine reserves. Research will provide critical data on the ecological effects of the loss and restoration of sharks on coral reefs.
Unparalleled research opportunities: The project allows students to gain research training and engage in scientific inquiry through participation with University of Miami scientists and staff. Participation involves scientifically sound practices and measurable outcomes in marine conservation biology.
At Sea Live-Aboard Expeditions: All research will occur during week-long at sea expeditions aboard the R/V Garvin, a 55′ custom live-aboard research vessel that serves as an incredibly versatile platform for marine research and education.
