Internship Opportunities

We have a variety of projects well suited to qualified interns. Below are some of our current offerings. We do not require a background in biology or ecology, however we do value good writers and people with unique skillsets. Please inquire if you think we may be a good fit for you.

Internship Projects:

1. Citizen Science and Land Conservation

We are currently working with the Lake Placid Land Conservancy to develop citizen science protocols so that landowners can monitor wildlife on their properties. This project involves an understanding of climate change, private land stewardship, and basic biological and ecological proinciples. We value interns with attentive writing skills, visual graphics skills, and social engagement interests.

2. Social Media and Project Outreach

At Adirondack Research, we not only use science to inform decisions, we communicate science to affect 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 road salt use. We are looking for an intern to lead our social media campaigns by developing editorial calendars and blog posts.

3. Invasive Species Research

We currently have a contract with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) to assess non-native animal species that may pose a threat to New York State ecosystems. We are looking for an intern to assist our team in performing “book” research on these species. Tasks include researching primary literature, web-based databases and species information clearinghouses. Your research on these species will help inform the NYSDEC in enforcing laws that help regulate the sale and transport of invasive animal species.

4. Graphic Design and Websites

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.


We are not currently offering positions, but we encourage you to contact us with your resume and interests.
