Field Museum Women in Science Internships

We are thrilled to be hosting Women in Science interns during the Summer. 

The internship applicants should be prepared to be in person, not online. Interns are expected to work full-time, Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm (unless otherwise arranged with the supervisor). To be considered, applicants need to:

  • Be a high school or undergraduate student at the time of application
  • Be a talented and motivated individual interested in the sciences
  • Have an Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, or Michigan address to be considered. 

Examples of 2024 Women in Science Internships:

  • Georeferencing and Integrating Prairie Insects into the Field Museum Collection
  • Digitizing the FMNH mite collection
  • Winds of Change: Chicago's Urban Impact on Mammalian Evolution
  • COLORoptera: Training AI to Classify Beetle Color Patterns from Preserved Specimens

Applications for the Women In Science Internships are now closed for 2024. Please check our Careers webpage next February or March to apply for the 2025 internships.
