Field Museum Semester: Research in Natural History
United States - Sponsored by ACM
Advisor: Israel Del Toro
ACM's Field Museum Semester: Research in Natural History is an intensive off-campus program that combines internship, research, and coursework. It is for upper-level students interested in natural history research with a background in evolutionary biology, anthropology, geology, and/or a related discipline. The internship component consists of 25-30 hours per week working at the Field Museum, for which students receive a stipend. The program is rounded out by participation in a course taught by the Visiting Faculty Director, which cuts across different disciplines and takes advantage of the Field Museum's unique collections, and a seminar led by Field Museum professional staff, which covers topics related to scientific communication, career development, and career preparation.
Open to upper-level students interested in natural history research with a background in evolutionary biology, anthropology, geology, and/or a related field.
