Learnerships / Student Internships

As in most years, we are inviting two learners or student interns (one working primarily with plants and the other primarily with insects) to join us for the 2021 summer months. Research will focus on the ecology of our semi-agricultural landscape. These positions will be based at Hawthorne Valley Farm in Columbia County, NY.

Our intention is to make this position accessible to applicants from diverse backgrounds, who are excited by this opportunity. We encourage people who are under-resourced, BIPOC, or with a nontraditional background to apply.

Please see the links below for details and application process. We are no longer accepting applications for these positions; those who are interested are welcome to send their applications, but they will only be put on file for potential future consideration. If you have any questions, please contact us by email (or phone, 518 938 1109). Unfortunately, we are only able to consider applicants who are US citizens or permanent residents, or who otherwise have US working papers.
