The second DAN Europe internship programme will be held in July 2016. Applicants interested in the areas of dive medicine, physiology, biomedical engineering and research will be selected for a custom-tailored program with a common training period of 3 weeks followed by a mentored experience-based one. Training will mainly take place at the DAN Europe Continental Office in Roseto degli Abruzzi (Italy) but combined hosting by other DAN Research partner organization may also be possible.
Research interns typically assist in data collection and work on a variety of assignments to develop their practical skills, critical thinking, and technical communication expertise. Interns will be asked to produce a written report of their experience which may be used in full or in part in DAN publications, including Alert Diver magazine, DAN website, research newsletters and press releases. Interns are primarily recruited among undergraduate students at Colleges and Universities as well as early-stage researchers from private organisations, including post-graduate students. Academic credits may be available.
