Department of Botany Interns and Assistants

Since 2008, the Botany Department has hosted interns from various institutions. Individuals participate in unique experiences related to research, education/outreach and assist scientists at The Field Museum with collection management. Their role is vital as they provide much needed service and insight from the perspective of a student. Interns develop both academically and professionally under the supervision of our staff.
