HRC Internship for Plan II Students
Application deadline: April 2, 2007.
Posted: March 6, 2007
The experience gained by interns will benefit them in their own research projects, in possible graduate studies, and even as a career option in such fields as librarianship, museum studies, archival or curatorial work, as well as public affairs, marketing, public programming, and event management.
In addition to providing general support for Ransom Center programs and services, an intern may be asked to work in a variety of different fields including processing collections, preserving collection materials, doing editorial and publicity work, and assisting with guest speakers events.
The internship will be for the whole academic year, fall and spring semester, and will be an opportunity to work on actual exhibitions designed by the center. There will be an orientation period during the last week of August.
The position is not a benefits-eligible one, but there is a stipend of $1500 per semester, for which the intern is expected to put in a ten hour work week. In addition there is the possibility of academic credit if the student registers for a conference course (either TC or English) with an appropriate supervising professor.
An applicant should provide the following:
* a one-page résumé,
* a letter from the student describing his/her interest and qualifications,
* a letter of recommendation from a UT faculty member or someone who knows the candidate's professional qualification pertinent to this internship.
(Both letters should be addressed to Robert Fulton, Curator for Academic Affairs, but should be attached to the résumé and delivered to the Plan II office.)
Deadline for applications is Monday, April 2.
