National Center for Preservation Technology & Training (NCPTT) Summer Internships
The National Center for Preservation Technology & Training (NCPTT) is an office of the U.S. National Park Service. NCPTT advances the application of science and technology to historic preservation. Working in the fields of archeology, architecture, landscape architecture and materials conservation, the Center accomplishes its mission through training, education, research, technology transfer and partnerships.

Summer internships at NCPTT provide students and recent graduates an opportunity to undertake laboratory or field research in archeology, architecture, engineering, collections management, historic landscapes, and materials science.


What do interns do?
Interns work in one of our four program areas:
  • Archeology & Collections
  • Architecture & Engineering
  • Historic Landscapes
  • Materials Conservation
Projects vary from year to year but may include historic resource documentation, hands-on research, data collection, materials and product testing, or testing new technologies.

How long are the internships?
Our summer internships last ten weeks. Positions will begin on or about June 2, 2014 and end August 8, 2014.

Will I get paid?
Yes! Our interns are short-term employees of Northwestern State University. Compensation is based on experience, including academic experience. Depending on your personal spending habits, the compensation provided is typically more than sufficient to cover living expenses during your stay in Natchitoches.

Who’s eligible?
Applicants should demonstrate skills and knowledge in preservation technology. This may include but not be limited to documentation, condition assessments, literature reviews, laboratory or field research, materials testing, hands-on preservation treatments, or other related skills. Undergraduate applicants must be accepted to or currently enrolled in a four-year accredited university or college program. Graduate applicants must be accepted to or currently enrolled in a master’s or doctoral degree program in a discipline such as architecture, anthropology, conservation, chemistry, engineering, geology, geography, preservation, etc. Applications from recent graduates will also be considered.

How to Apply
To apply, send a letter of interest that includes the dates that the candidate will be available for work at NCPTT (between June 2, 2014 and August 8, 2014), resume with three reference contacts, and a current official or unofficial transcript to: Ed FitzGerald, National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, 645 University Parkway, Natchitoches, LA 71457, or via email at edward_fitzgerald@contractor.nps.gov, or phone at (318) 356-7444.
