The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art

Summer Graduate Internship 2007

Florida State University

Sarasota, Florida

 

We are pleased to announce the Summer Graduate Internships for 2007 at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.  The Ringling Museum, located in Sarasota, Florida, provides a high quality, practical work experience for current graduate students interested in a career in the museum field.  The Ringling Museum is comprised of three museums on a 66-acre estate located on Sarasota Bay and includes an internationally recognized art collection, the Ringling mansion, Cà d’Zan, and Circus Museum.  Beginning in January, 2006, a series of new buildings began opening, which includes the Circus Museum’s Tibbals Learning Center celebrating the Circus, a Visitors Pavilion featuring the reinstalled Historic Asolo Theater, new art galleries, and an education center.  The art library of 65,000 volumes, one of the largest art museum libraries in the southeast, is moving into expansive new quarters in January 2007.

 

The 2007 internships will begin on June 15, 2007 and end on August 9, 2007, with a mandatory orientation on June 14, 2007.  During this eight-week period a total stipend of $3,600 will be paid.  The Museum will assist the interns in obtaining housing, if requested.  The cost of housing and meals will be the responsibility of the intern.  Each intern will be assigned to a specific area of museum operations based on their choice of an internship indicated on their application.  Approximately half of the experience will focus on a pre-determined project that will add not only value to the museum, but also will be an invaluable tool for a future career.  Additionally intern group experiences will be scheduled to provide hands on museum experience that will give an overview of museum operations.  

 

Selected candidates will be notified by mail on February 27, 2007.

Spend a summer in Cooperstown, at the home of baseball!

Photograph Archive Internship Opportunity

The National Baseball Hall of Fame invites graduate students interested in pursuing an archival career and enrolled in an Archival, Library and Information Science, American History, Public History, or American Studies program, to apply for an internship in the photograph archive. The archive houses a variety of materials including: photographs, negatives, slides and a variety of other formats. Interns will have the opportunity to experience an archival environment outside of a traditional academic setting. Interns may gain experience in arrangement and description, basic preservation skills, cataloging, accession procedures, records and database management. This will help prioritize collections for further processing and conservation. Students may be asked to assist with archival reference requests.

The ten-week paid internship program begins in June and ends in August.
