If you are a science and conservation leader who believes in making a contribution to the world and sparking curiosity in young people, the Scientist-in-Residence Program may be for you.
The Scientist-in-Residence Program connects established science and conservation leaders with inquisitive young minds. Our students work with the Scientist-in-Residence on authentic science activities at either our new Living Lab facility in San Diego or our field research station in Baja, Mexico.
Interactions between the Scientist-in-Residence and the community will help to dispel negative scientific stereotypes, create a more science-informed society, and instill a belief that discovery is possible for everyone.
The Scientist-in-Residence is a competitive program open to science and conservation leaders from all professional fields who have an interest in mentoring underserved youth.
“The importance of mentoring is to remember that you’re not just mentoring students, but you’re mentoring your future colleagues.”
-Dr. Drew Talley, University of San Diego, Ocean Discovery Institute volunteer Science Director
