Summer research opportunities.
The National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, hosts a world-class research staff and unparalleled scientific research collections. Natural History Research Experience (NHRE) summer internships pair undergraduates with members of the Natural History research and collections staff, providing a hands-on introduction to scientific research. Here is an opportunity for students to engage in an original research project with a scientific mentor from one or more of the scholarly disciplines at the National Museum of Natural History: Anthropology, Botany, Entomology, Invertebrate Zoology, Mineral Science, Paleobiology, Vertebrate Zoology, and Museum Education. Additional activities include behind-the-scenes tours and lectures at the museum.
