Growing the Next Generation of Ecologists
IAE offers spring and summer internships. Interns typically work in crews of 3-4 under the guidance of crew leaders and IAE staff. Depending on their focus, interns may work in Oregon or in the Southwest. Our interns gain on the ground experience in the fundamentals of ecological data collection, the logistics of field research projects, and native seed collection strategies. They also have the opportunity to meet a diversity of natural resource professionals, and report back on their experiences at IAE’s Summer Intern Forum Event.
Intern positions are announced in January of each year on our Jobs page, with hiring completed in February and early March. Work typically begins in April and May, and continues through July or August.
