Wyoming Dinosaur Center Internship Opportunities

For more than 20 years, the Wyoming Dinosaur Center has hosted a summer Internship Program for students and other interested persons.  In the process we have introduced more than 150 different individuals to a first-hand experience working at our world-class museum.

This program was designed to offer college students and recent graduates an opportunity to gain real world experience educating and interacting with the public while working in the field of paleontology, in a museum, prep lab, and at active dinosaur quarries.  However, being a student or recent graduate is not a requirement of this position.

All applicants must:

  • be at least 21-years-old
  • possess a valid driver’s license for a minimum of 2 years
  • have the ability to lift a minimum of 30lbs repeatedly
  • have a strong interest in dinosaurs

Here at the Wyoming Dinosaur Center we believe in learning through teaching.  Interns will be responsible for running and maintaining dig sites, hosting daily digging programs with the public, leading museum and dig site tours.  We will make sure that all interns are taught everything they need to know to interact with the public while solidifying their knowledge and expanding said knowledge through educating others.

We will have 12-week+, 8-week, and 6-week flexible sessions available for those interns selected.  With a maximum of 24 individuals chosen to fill all positions.

A stipend is paid twice a month to interns, and housing/utilities are provided for the duration of your stay.

Internships will begin on May 16th and continue through September 14th

Flexible scheduling is available based on the length of student’s availability.

Please see below for additional information, questionnaire and application. Handwritten questionnaires and applications can be submitted to our Education Director Angela Reddick at areddick@wyomingdinosaurcenter.org.

When submitting your application please include an up-to-date resume or CV if you have one available (suggested but not required).

2022 applications and questionnaires due by February 28th.

Interviews via Zoom will be scheduled for the first two weeks of March and final decisions will be announced by March 31st.
