Work with Us

Looking to gain experience in museums, girls and women’s studies, or digital media?

Want to work with like-minded activists who love art, history, and culture?

Need to earn academic credit or build your portfolio?

Join the Girl Museum team as an intern or volunteer.

Individuals of all backgrounds, gender orientations, and academic majors are welcome. Girl Museum is an Equal Opportunity Employer and committed to providing a safe, creative environment for all of our team members.

Volunteering with Girl Museum has been such a fantastic experience, and I have learnt so much in the year that I’ve been part of such an amazing team. The internship has helped me to build my confidence, develop research and writing skills further, and be part of a growing museum. It has also given me the opportunity to do something I love, whilst gaining valuable museum-related experience.

Am I an Intern or Volunteer?

An intern has a minimum of 5 hour per week/3 month commitment. Interns have weekly tasks alongside long term projects. This is for people with time, passion, and dedication.

A volunteer is someone who loves our mission, but has limited time to committ. Volunteers will typically have a project that is either short and discrete, or long term and fluid. Some volunteers choose to work on many projects over time, or to be recurring guest bloggers.

Resident Scholars

We invite scholars (who hold a PhD in their field of study) to contact us about serving as a volunteer Resident Scholar or on our Advisory Board. These positions are limited per year. Fill out the application form (link below) if you have (1) a PhD in a relevant field to our work, (2) want to expand both your research as well as contribute to our mission, and (3) are interested in serving in an advisory capacity on relevant projects.

Have questions? Please email us.

Requirements

We are currently accepting applications for the following positions. All work is done online. Internships require a minimum 5 hours per week commitment for at least 3 months. When you work each week is determined by you. Volunteers have no minimum requirements.

Spring 2023 - Start February 1, 2023

The following positions are available for the Spring 2023 term. All positions are unpaid and virtual, and will start in January or February 2023. 

Liberation Curatorial Interns – working with our curators, you will undertake historical and artifact research for an upcoming exhibition on girl survivors of Nazi concentration camps. This may include encountering and researching highly sensitive and graphic information about girls’ lives during and after the camps. Applicants should be currently studying at the undergraduate or graduate level in history, with an interest and willingness to engage with the difficult histories of the Holocaust. 

Sites of Girlhood Interns – working on our Sites of Girlhood project, you will research and write entries on historical sites, monuments, and markers related to girls around the world. (See an example entry here.) These entries are much like short biographies, with links to related resources; however, all entries focus on the girlhood of the girl(s) related to the site, i.e., the period of their lives before age 21. Interns should be able to work independently and according to set writing standards, exhibit a strong background in historical research (including primary and secondary sources), and have at least 1-2 writing samples.

Social Media Intern – using our extensive exhibits and virtual resources, you will develop social media posts for our Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter channels. We allow a lot of creative flexibility, so ideas on focal points or hashtag-based trends, or even something entirely new are welcome. Interns will utilize content on our website in order to direct people from our social media to the website, with goal of promoting visitation and engagement with Girl Museum. We utilize ContentStudio as our social media management platform.
