Internship Opportunities/ Post- Baccalaureate Programs

The Southwest Environmental Center- Internships Available

Our internships offer the opportunity to gain important skills in conservation work. You’ll learn firsthand how a biodiversity advocacy organization works to mobilize public support, influence public policy and undertake ecological restoration. We have a small staff, so you’ll be an important part of the SWEC team.

Some of our internships pay a small stipend, others are unpaid depending upon our current staff resources. Either way, you’ll receive great work experience and possibly academic credit. We require a 3-6 month commitment, working at least 12 hours per week on a flexible schedule.

We are looking for interns who have excellent written and verbal communication skills, relevant coursework and/or experience, good interpersonal skills for public outreach, the ability to work independently, and a strong commitment to SWEC’s mission of biodiversity protection.

 

New York City Hunter College Master’s Program in Animal Behavior and Conservation

This 36- credit Master of Arts Program enables students interested in animal behavior and conservation (ABC) to develop and enhance their research skills and understanding of the behavior of animals, and to acquire credentials for employment in fields related to ABC. This free-standing MA Program replaces the previous concentration in ABC within the Psychology MA Program with no changes in requirements.

 

NSF- Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. AN REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
