Bird & Mammal Internship (unpaid)

Organization: Seattle Aquarium (AZA Member)
Location: Seattle, Washington, United States
Job or Internship: Internship

The Seattle Aquarium internship program is designed to provide individuals with practical learning experience while gaining valuable knowledge related to his/her career goals. Our internship is an in-depth program requiring a minimum commitment of 400 hours in at least 10 weeks but no more than 13 weeks (32-40 hours per week). Interns must be flexible with their schedule, and will be expected to work weekdays, weekends and holidays. This is an unpaid position and while we may be able to help you in your housing search, there is no housing provided. We will do everything possible to accommodate school requirements for those who can earn class credit for internships.

Requests for internship positions are evaluated based on experience (professional and/or volunteer), academic achievement, interview success, willingness and ability to make a commitment to the program and positions available. By successfully completing this internship, students demonstrate responsibility, reliability, and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. Life science internships will be heavily concentrated in animal husbandry and will have an exhibit interpretation component.

We are now accepting applications for our Fall 2014 Life Sciences Internships. Applications are due June 20, 2014.
