Internships at CCMI

Internships at the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) provide an exciting opportunity for early career scientists to gain real life experiences in marine science education, communications, research, and field station operations. We maintain active field research and education programmes in the Cayman Islands supported by a team of scientists, educators, outreach and communications coordinators.

Internships are available to applicants 18 years of age or older, and are typically available throughout the year, quarterly for 3-6 months at our Little Cayman Research Centre. If you are interested in learning more about our internship programmes, please email our Education Team:

“I am very grateful to have done this internship and meet the CCMI Staff, who were all lovely. I learnt valuable workplace lessons and got to enjoy all the aspects of marine biology, which I love. Thank you for this opportunity!”

“An unforgettable experience with great people and good food.” ~Jasmine L.W. OSS Marine Education Intern 2022


“I think this internship was incredibly insightful into the working environment in the marine science field before heading off to university. Having the opportunity to be around educators and researchers in the same place was really fantastic because CCMI has both education and research together. The independence CCMI provide me outside of work life was really incredible and having the opportunity to live on a small island and explore it by bike was magical!” ~ Georgie H. OSS Marine Education Intern 2023


“Absolutely incredible, so beneficial to anyone who feels they need more experience in education and marine science.”
