The Johnson Museum offers internships in all departments to undergraduates enrolled for the full academic year.

All majors are encouraged to apply. 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. Federal Work Study applicants are strongly preferred but not required.

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 positions pay $14.00 per hour/10 hours per week maximum. The application for 2023–24 academic year positions will be posted in February. Email with any questions.



The Bartels Scholar for Education will learn about the Museum’s collections and work within areas of our Education Department during Summer 2023. A strong interest in education and learning about art from around the world throughout time is required, and prior experience working with elementary-age schoolchildren and diverse audiences is preferred. Please read the position description for complete details.

Rising Cornell undergraduates are invited to email a cover letter, research proposal, and resume to Annmarie Ventura by Friday, January 27, 2023. Please include an accurate phone number and/or email address where you can be reached if you are selected for an interview.
