Archival Intern Program: Research Associate, Defense Forensic Science Center

The Defense Forensic Science Center (DFSC) is seeking candidates for an archival intern and would like to inform you of the opportunity for interested students. I am a solo librarian at DFSC and am in dire need of the right undergraduate to get the ball rolling on historical artifacts here at our facility at Fort Gillem in Forest Park, Georgia. Ideally, I’d like to see a local student or at least in-state student in the position before we advertise otherwise. The attached flyer will help with some details on DFSC and the position.

We would like to have archival interns present throughout the school year and with no particular start or stop date. Because we are able to continuously accept students into the program, we do not have a hard deadline for applications. Students are able to work part time so that they can take advantage of the internship opportunities while still taking classes or devote full time to the work. The salary range is $2000-3000 for full time (40 hr/week) interns, depending on the number of completed credit hours, GPA, and whether the applicant has previous research experience. This amount will be prorated for the students that do not work full time.

Please call if there are any questions. Applications are sent to the program coordinator but I’ll be glad to address any issues. The email address accepting resumes is on the attached flyer.
Thank you for your time,

Jane Killian / Chief Librarian / Office of Quality, Initiatives and Training / Defense Forensic Science Center / 4930 N. 31st St, Bldg 925 / Forest Park, GA 30297 / 404-469-5992 office / 404-625-3158 cell
