As planning and construction of offshore wind energy facilities increases along the eastern coast of the U.S. there is a need to identify and convey the most pressing research questions associated with the potential impacts of the construction, operation, and demobilization of these facilities on the ecology of the marine and estuarine systems in which they are located. The student will assist a research team in the development of a manuscript for peer-reviewed publication. This will include review of primary and grey literature sources, interactions with leading researchers in the field, synthesis of accumulated research, and initial drafts of pertinent summaries. An in-person student will also participate in weekly meetings of the Sandy Hook Internship Program (SHIP) wherein interns and mentors discuss and share topics relevant to students and early career scientists (e.g., applying to / life in graduate school, finding research topics, grants, networking, presentations, careers, etc.).
