MCBONES Internship Program
Opportunities for Students, Teachers, and Community Volunteers

The MCBONES Research Center Foundation provides internships and other opportunities for students, teachers, and community volunteers.

Opportunities include both technical (e.g. science, technology, engineering, and math) and business focused internships for students (particularly high school students). These internships provide students with real life science and engineering experience, allowing them to determine their interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, gain school credit (where applicable), and position themselves for future employment.

Student internships are intended to be six-month-long assignments generally beginning near March 1 (just before field dig season begins) and ending near August 31 (just before the school year starts). Applications are suggested to be submitted by February 1 to ensure consideration for the upcoming field season.

Other positions are available for teachers and community volunteers. Most positions are geared toward on-the-job training on research projects being conducted at the Coyote Canyon Mammoth Site, south of Kennewick, Washington. Teachers and other volunteers interested in participating in the Coyote Canyon Mammoth Site research or other MCBONES activities are encouraged to contact the educational director and/or volunteer coordinator.
