Paid On-Campus Internship - Redd Center

​​​​​​​Redd Center Internship

The Charles Redd Center for Western Studies offers a paid 1 semester (Fall, Winter, or Spring+Summer) internship that will give students the opportunity to hone their research and writing skills while engaging in public history and publishing. Interns will work with Professor Brenden Rensink, the Redd Center Assistant Director, to research regional Intermountain West histories which they will then publish (with the student's name attached as author!) on the Intermountain Histories digital public history website (http://www.intermountainhistories.org) and mobile app (available for iOS and Android).

Learning how to translate academic historical research skills to writing for the general public will benefit students in any career path they chose to follow. The internship pays standard history department student wage rates. Students will work on a schedule (roughly 10 hours a week), but will be able to establish the times that work for them. Preference will be given to Junior and Senior history majors. There may be post-internship job opportunities as a Redd Center research assistant. ​

Summer 2017 Internships at the Church History Library!

 

All majors are welcome to apply for one of our internship spots with the Joseph Smith Papers Project or the Historic Sites Division.

 

TO APPLY

Send your resume and cover letter to Maren Kirwan at hist_intern@byu.edu by April 20, 2017. Please use this sample resume for guidance on formatting and the information to include. Please include details of your work experience, skills, and competencies, especially as they relate to the job description of this internship. 


IMPORTANT: This internship requires a time commitment of 7-10 hours per week over the course of Spring/Summer semester. It is preferred that students devote one full day to the internship (for example working from 8-5 pm every Tuesday) since it does require that you commute to Salt Lake City. If you apply, it is expected that you will have room in your schedule to accommodate these hours. Please indicate in your cover letter what day you plan on working. You will be expected to register for 3.0 credits of History 199R.  DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT ACCOMMODATE THIS SCHEDULE.
