Internships (Unpaid, Ongoing)

We have a long term internship project to investigate and map the farming history of Lake Placid. If you like agriculture, history and the Adirondacks, this may be a fun project for you. We also have a sister company called Green Goat Maps (www.greengoatmaps.com or @greengoatmaps on social channels). Lots of fun mapping stuff to help with!

At Adirondack Research, we not only use science to inform decisions, we communicate science to support policy. Research areas where we could use help “getting the word out” include projects in the areas of community development, ecological education, and state policy relating to invasive species monitoring. We are looking for an intern to lead our social media campaigns by developing editorial calendars and blog posts.

We convey science. We do it with graphics. We are always creating maps, graphs, reports, and multimedia. We would love help from people versed with Adobe products and web design platforms. If you have a passion for art and want to apply that passion to science in the form of website layout, printed products or animation, we would love to work with you.
