THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST. WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2024. WE HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD SUMMER WHEREVER YOU SPEND IT.
Learnerships and internships form a cornerstone of our educational outreach at the Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program. Through our learnerships and internships, we hope to provide participants with experiences, knowledge, and skills that will enrich their lives and help them to explore potential career paths. Learners and interns are involved directly in our ongoing projects and our public outreach. We train them in research methods and encourage them to explore our region’s landscape through various lenses which, this year, are primarily relating to entomology and agroecology. We are especially interested in mentoring people whose interests align closely with the themes of our research, but who have not previously had opportunities to pursue those interests in a professional setting. We also believe that diverse voices enrich our profession and can help our program to maximize the impact of our work. To that end, we welcome and encourage applications from people who are Black, Indigenous, or people of color, who identify as LGBTQIA+, who are socioeconomically disadvantaged, or who belong to other historically marginalized communities. Please note, however, that we are only able to consider those applicants who are US citizens or permanent residents or who have US working papers.
For 2024, we plan to hire two learners/interns, both working primarily with insects. Further information about this opportunity, including instructions on how to apply, is provided at the link below. Applications are now closed.
If you have any questions about our learnerships/internships, please contact Conrad Vispo (for entomology positions) by email or by phone at (518) 672-7994.
