Interns work throughout the Museum on a wide variety of projects and tasks including everything from science education to behind-the-scenes work. An internship at the Museum of Science is an excellent way to gain a hands-on, work-learn experience in a specific area of interest or field of study. Our internship program offers internships for one of three trimesters: fall, winter/spring, and summer.

How to Apply

Please visit our internship application site to view our open opportunities and to complete the application process.

Staff, interns, and volunteers will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment. The Museum will consider an exemption from the vaccine requirement if they are unable to get vaccinated due to a qualifying medical disability or a sincerely held religious objection. The Museum is not required to provide an accommodation or exemption from the vaccine requirement if doing so would pose a direct threat to others in the workplace or would create an undue hardship for the Museum.

The Museum will provide reasonable accommodation to individuals with disabilities who need an accommodation to fully participate in the application process. If you would like to request an accommodation, please contact the Internship Office via email
