We offer advanced internships for students, professionals in extended vocational training or for a sabbatical. In cooperation with your supervisor, we will elaborate a realistic internship schedule and support you in the search for external funding. The minimal duration for an internship is six weeks and consists of a theoretical part, practical data collection in the field and a final report. Depending on the duration of the internship and the regulations of your university, you can earn up to 30 credit points for such an internship. Our staff speaks English, French and German.

The Mériscope Marine Research Station operates from mid-June to the end of October in any given year. If you are interested in an advanced internship, please contact us by email and including your CV before the end of February of the respective year.

Our approved rigid-hulled inflatable boats are the only scientific excursion boats in the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park.
