Austen Riggs - Research Internship


The Austen Riggs Center is offering an opportunity for undergraduate students to take part in our Internship Program. The purpose of the Program is to engage directly in clinical research as a team member and gain insight into life and operations at a world-class psychiatric hospital. Internships are available throughout the year on a rolling basis; start/end dates and overall time commitment are negotiable per the applicant’s availability and scholastic schedule. Undergraduates focused on pre-medical, psychology, neuroscience, or related areas are encouraged to apply, though students from other academic disciplines will be considered. Interns will be paid (hourly stipend). No other benefits, accommodation, transportation or housing are provided.

Internship Assignment: Under supervision of Alison Lotto, MLIS, ARC Librarian & Archivist, process a collection of archival clinical and personal papers. You will research the project, arrange and describe materials, manage quality control of finding aid metadata, and create an online finding aid in ArchivesSpace archival management software. There may also be an opportunity to participate in other projects including accessioning, appraisal and digitization.
