Interns

Internship Program

The Invertebrate Paleontology collections of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles (LACMIP) maintains an active internship program for local university and college students with diverse interests related to science and museums. Our interns participate in a variety of collections-related activities, including specimen curation, digitization, outreach, and research.

How to become an intern?

The goal of the LACMIP internship program is to help students and recent graduates with interest in science and museum careers gain hands-on experience. While prior experience is not necessary to be successful, we expect interns to be eager and willing to learn, able to work respectfully in a busy office environment, and maintain clear communication with LACMIP staff. Interns must have their own transportation to/from our facility in Carson, CA.

If you would like to apply to become a LACMIP intern, please fill out the volunteer application form. You may also submit a letter of interest, resume/CV, and professional references (including the contact information for your academic advisor) via email. Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee placement in the program.
