The South Street Seaport Museum in New York City is offering two remote collection management and archives internships for the upcoming fall semester of 2022.
Interns participate in the daily work of the Collections Department, shadowing and learning to manage projects related to collection stewardship, inventory and digitization, research, interpretation and digital content creation. In addition to gaining extensive work experience, interns will be offered opportunities for professional development activities and will be provided resources that focus on maritime heritage, New York City history, and the role of museums in society today. Our goal is to provide interns with the most current methods and tools that are relevant to the field, assign projects that are tailored to support their personal and professional growth, and provide space for critical dialogue.
Internships are offered to undergraduate and graduate students, and recent graduates.
Positions are part-time, 3 full days/week, and they are unpaid, but a stipend of $50/day is provided on a bi-weekly basis. Interns also receive free admission to most NYC museums and enjoy employee discounts at the Seaport Museum’s Bowne & Co. Stationers.
The application deadline is Friday, August 5th.
