Internships at the Oklahoma Biological Survey

The internships are part of the university's independent study program. Students will gain skills and try out possible career options, while receiving academic credit.  The Oklahoma Biological Survey is both an OU research unit and a state agency, with the mission to gather, analyze, and disseminate information regarding animal and plant species and ecological communities within the state and associated geographical areas. 

Depending on their schedule, faculty and research staff are able to mentor interns throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters. 

If interested in an internship, visit our personnel page to find a mentor and contact them directly.
