Lots of Bivalves
Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  gulf of maineSeptember 7, 2018
Through the summer internship I drove into Portland a lot and would take an occasional ferry out to Peaks Island. My professor offered this position to me during an aquaculture class my junior year. The meetings I went too set the bar high for UMaine Research and only expected the best. I was lucky to work on a Atlantic Surf Clam experiment that would determine in what depth of water is the growth better. I also worked on Basket Islands Oyster farm and Japanese Ear Hung Scallops! Really enjoyed seeing the new technologies for the upcoming aquaculture ideas.

Good place to work when you're in college
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Orono, MEApril 27, 2019
Not a bad place to be, honestly. Management is really flexible about scheduling around classes to ensure that you education comes first.

Try to avoid the late night shifts-those are pretty bad.

Interesting
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCHER (Current Employee) –  Orono, MEApril 18, 2019
The job was interesting but often ended up overshadowing more important things, such as my studies, or even my sleep. I intend to finish my term as a researcher but after that, I will likely leave the position permanently.
