Job Description:

Calling all budding social scientists!

This position is ideal for those with an interest in research and evaluation, museum studies, sociology, psychology, anthropology, education and learning sciences as well as for those who want to gain practical applied social science research skills.

The Institute for Learning Innovation seeks an individual interested in a future career in free-choice learning research. This year's summer internship project will work in environmental sociology and learning. This internship is an excellent opportunity to experience various aspects of learning and visitor research. Paired with a Senior Researcher, the intern will be involved in instrument design, data collection, data analysis and interpretation, and report writing. The focus of the project is learning and urban national parks.

About You: You are curious and excited about a potential career in social sciences, equity, and free-choice learning. You want to work with the best firm in the field to learn more about yourself, research methods and research-to-practice. The Institute for Learning Innovation team works remotely and would connect with you via video chats at least three times a week. Thus, we need someone who is a self-starter and reliable team player. If you can manage your time and deliver projects with integrity, please send us a note.

Requirements: You are considering a career in free-choice learning. You have access to the necessary tools (hardware and Microsoft Office) to do this work. If travel is necessary and funded, you could travel to a project site for data collection or a meeting. Ideally you live in the DC-metro area. You have 20 hours a week available to complete work assignments, and can agree to a set schedule.

This internship is paid.
