The Johnson Museum offers internships in all departments to rising Cornell sophomores, juniors, and seniors enrolled for the full academic year.

Prior museum experience is not required; coursework in art history is useful and preferred for curatorial and education positions. Students who anticipate having heavy course loads should not apply since interns are expected to keep regular hours (10 hours per week maximum). Federal Work Study applicants are strongly preferred. The positions pay $12.50 per hour.

These positions are located in Ithaca, New York. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Cornell University’s need to limit the number of on-campus employees, the successful applicant may be asked to perform their role remotely.

The Johnson Museum of Art values the power of different perspectives to expand and deepen our understanding of art and society. The Museum is an inclusive space and we seek candidates who will contribute to an environment that supports students, faculty, and staff of all identities and backgrounds.

 

The application period for the 2021–22 academic year has closed. Applicants selected for interviews will be contacted individually.
