Internship Opportunities

The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum is looking for interns for the Spring & Summer of 2014. We are a small, house museum in northwestern Massachusetts.  The Museum has a small but dedicated staff of employees and volunteers. We are seeking three to five motivated individuals willing to help in a variety of multidisciplinary projects.

Listed below are the relevant academic fields for our program. Each is linked to a list of projects that would fall within that discipline. There is overlap between related disciplines, so creative combinations of these projects is encouraged. Successful candidates should be willing to choose several foci from the lists and help integrate them into a single program.

In order to get the full Museum experience, some public relations, business and day to day operations of running a museum will be integral to the position.  Interns are expected to assist staff with providing tours, working in the gift shop, and interacting with volunteers.

In Brief:

  • Applicants are expected to be self motivated and willing to work creatively within budget and technology restraints.

  • Course credit can be provided if arrangements can be made through the intern’s college or university. A small stipend and housing may be available.

  • The deadline for application is March 22, 2014.  Interviews and selection will be completed by April 5, 2014.
