Bishop Museum Department of Anthropology Summer Internship Program
The Anthropology Department’s Summer Internship Program is offering internships over the summer academic session (May 21-August 7, 2012) for undergraduate and graduate students wanting to prepare for careers in archaeology, anthropology, museums, or other related fields. At least two days per week of project work is requested. Interns will work on projects relating to the collections held by the department, which are focused on Hawaiian and Polynesian archaeology. Projects will include inventorying and scanning archaeological maps and documents, inventorying and digitizing artifacts, rehousing artifacts, and sorting midden samples. Other work may be included, as well, based on the current needs of curatorial staff within the Anthropology Department. Each intern will receive hands-on training and instruction relating to the projects on which they are working. The internships are unpaid, but it may be possible to receive academic credit, subject to the requirements of individual university degree programs.
The number of applicants selected for each internship program varies according to staff needs and availability. Those interested in applying should fill out a Summer Internship Application Form. Please attach a resume and include the name of an academic advisor or professor who can be contacted to provide a reference. A brief summary (one page or less) of your major areas of academic and professional interest, as well as an explanation of how you hope to benefit from the internship should also be included.
Please email the application and attachments to:
Summer Moore, Archaeology Collections Manager
Application deadline is April 15, 2012.
