Dallas Zoo

Behavioral Science Internship

The Dallas Zoo’s College Internship Program provides an interesting and rewarding learning opportunity for currently enrolled undergraduate or post-graduate students at an accredited college/university in the United States. Interns become actively involved in the Zoo’s animal care departments, conservation/research efforts, operations, and administrative positions.

The goal of the Behavioral Science internship at the Dallas Zoo is to provide practical opportunities for students interested in pursuing a career in science to learn about animal behavior and appropriate research methods in a zoo setting. Interns have the opportunity to learn skills related to zoological research including study design, and behavioral data collection/analysis methods. Applicants must have completed at least one year of college biology, introductory statistics, and be comfortable using MS Office to qualify. 

Interns work 20-40 hours per week for a minimum of 12 consecutive weeks during one of the sessions listed below. The purpose of the placements is to help the intern gain experience related to their education, and most are unpaid positions. The Dallas Zoo will work with students to document necessary time or projects needed to gain university credit for the internship. Unfortunately, we cannot provide transportation, housing, or a stipend.  Position limited to US nationals.

Candidates selected for internship must pass background check and TB test.

The deadline for returning the 2017 Summer internship packet is March 10, 2017.
