Graduate student internships
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is pleased to offer
conservation graduate student internships for 2007-2008:

Summer 2007: one full-time summer internship, eight to ten weeks in

Fall 2007 through summer 2008: one full or partial third year
internship, three to twelve months in duration.

The Natural History Museum boasts extensive, distinguished
collections in the fields of anthropology, botany, history,
paleontology, mineralogy, as well as most of the zoological
disciplines. Located in Exposition Park, just south of the
University of Southern California, the Natural History Museum is
close to a number of other museums and cultural attractions.

The internship will focus on preventive conservation for special
groups of artifacts and specimens within the museum's archaeology,
ethnography, history, mineralogy, and zoological collections.
Internship projects will include rehousing and treating artifacts
and specimens for their safe storage or future display. Collections
move preparations may also comprise part of the internship. Aspects
of the internship may be tailored to fit with the intern's
particular interests. All work will be carried out under the direct
supervision of the conservator.

Salary and limited domestic travel expenses will be provided for the
intern pending confirmation of funding. Note that full funding was
secured for the previous three summer internships. Both first and
second year graduate students are invited to apply. Applicants must
be U.S. citizens or have U.S. residency.
