Student Registration Intern with The Wolfsonian–FIU

The Wolfsonian–FIU is hiring a paid Registration Intern for Fall 2024 as part of its Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)-supported initiative to open pathways to museum careers.

Working with the museum’s Registration department—the core team entrusted with safeguarding the institution’s collection, which ranges from paintings and sculpture to furniture and works on paper—the Intern will assist staff with projects related to collections care and records for new acquisitions. Tasks include object inventory, cataloging, tracking, housing, handling, and packing, with additional emphasis on environmental monitoring and integrated pest management. Learning the policies and procedures related to the care, preservation, and documentation of the museum’s diverse object collection, the Intern will gain an overall understanding of the day-to-day responsibilities of a museum registrar.

The Registration Intern will:

  • Gain an overall understanding of the day-to-day responsibilities of a museum collections team.
  • Become familiar with a wide range of historic material and care considerations.
  • Receive hands-on experience with assessing, moving, photographing, and housing a variety of collection items.
  • Have access to Wolfsonian student enrichment activities such as career roundtables, a resume/cover letter writing workshop, and beyond.

This internship is held in person at 1001 Washington Ave, Miami Beach 33139.

The largest of FIU’s three museums, The Wolfsonian is an art and design research center in South Beach with a collection of more than 200,000 items from the modern age (1850–1950).
