Details
$ 14.93/hour
 

The Historic Sites Program Intern will provide support for all aspects of historic sites management, from facility operations and maintenance, to cataloging collections, planning public programs, conducting historic research, and participating in site interpretation. The Historic Sites Program Intern will work closely with the Section Chief and will be cross-trained to work with the visiting public at all sites administered by the main office (Eureka Schoolhouse, Sen. Justin Morrill Site, President Chester Arthur Site, Kent Museum, and Theron Boyd House).

The Historic Sites Program Intern will acquire knowledge and experience in the management of historic landscapes, structures and collections; and will gain a familiarity with the day-to-day operations and maintenance of history museums.

Qualified candidates should be working toward or have a graduate degree in history, public history, historic preservation, museum studies, or a related field. Experience in museum or collections management, and familiarity with PastPerfect museum management software are helpful. 

This is a ten-month internship, averaging 24 hours per week. These hours may be scheduled to best meet the needs of the Program Intern. When the historic sites are open to the public (late May to mid-October), the Program Intern will be required to work one weekend day each week. This position requires significant driving to various historic sites within the state, though a state-owned fleet vehicle or rental car will be available for most travel.
