2018 Summer Interns at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House Museum

Free parking is provided. Internships may be used for course credit with approval from the intern’s academic institution.

Orientation for 2019 summer internships will be held on Monday, June 3, 2019.

*NEW* Audience Research and Evaluation Intern

Audience research and evaluation plays a critical role in helping the Jewish Museum of Maryland (JMM) learn about our audiences, who they are and how they choose to interact with the Museum in order to improve and expand our engagement with them.

The JMM seeks a motivated, detail-oriented intern with strong communication skills with an interest in museums and cultural organizations. Under the supervision of the School Program Coordinator as a part of the Education and Programs team, the intern will gain an understanding in current evaluation best practices in Museums, learn how to conduct evaluation and audience research, and apply their learning in a project. The intern will assist in creating and conducting evaluations related to guests, exhibits, and programs at the JMM. This includes gathering guest feedback through surveys and questionnaires, conducting interviews, and observation. Interested students can be working toward a degree in museum studies, arts administration, marketing, anthropology, social and behavioral sciences, although other areas of study will be considered.

This internship is full time for ten weeks and includes a modest stipend; it does not include housing. Please send cover letter, resume, availability, and list of three references (two of which must be professional or academy) to Rachel Kassman, internship coordinator, Jewish Museum of Maryland, 15 Lloyd Street, Baltimore MD 21202 or rkassman@jewishmuseummd.org (email preferred). Please include “Audience Research and Evaluation Intern” in your subject line. Application deadline is April 8, 2019.


Additional Internship Opportunity:

B’Nai Israel Congregation seeks a qualified intern to assist with their Descendants’ Day Initiative. Descendants’ Day is simultaneously an extensive genealogical and history project, and a unique community building initiative, connecting people to their heritage and drawing fresh attention and energy to the historic Jewish community of Jonestown.

Interested students should be comfortable working with a team and conducting historical research. This internship includes a small stipend but does not cover housing or transportation. This is a 10 week internship with hours negotiated with the selected intern(s). This internship is supervised by B’Nai Israel’s Director of Special Projects, but will participate in the JMM internship orientation on June 3rd as well as professional development and field trip experiences provided by the Museum.

More information here. To apply, please send a resume and references by April 17th, 2019 to office@jewishdowntown.org.
