Summer Preservation Intern

Indiana Landmarks, the country’s largest statewide historic preservation non-profit organization, offers one full-time summer internship opportunity. One position will conduct an assessment of historic properties within the organization’s covenant and easement program. The internship will last a period of 12-16 weeks beginning in May 2017. The positions will be based in Indianapolis, Indiana.

QUALIFICATIONS
Applicants should have a working knowledge of 19th and 20th century architectural styles, with an emphasis on vernacular building types. The interns must have a reliable vehicle and be familiar with digital photography. Previous photography experience is helpful. Graduate students studying historic preservation or a related field preferred, although students pursuing a degree in law may also find the internship of particular interest.

PAY
The survey project begins officially in May 2017 and is expected to end in August. Dates are somewhat flexible, but the intern is expected to complete the project before returning to school or another job. The hourly rate of pay is $10-12 per hour, and reimbursement for mileage is $.50 cents per mile. Pay will be commensurate with experience. Digital camera and computer are supplied.

JOB DESCRIPTION
Indiana Landmarks has one of the most extensive easement and covenant programs for historic structures of any similar not-for-profit organization in the country.

After an initial training period, work will begin in the field. An easement or covenant monitoring form will need to be completed for each protected property. An intern may need to interact with property owners, and will coordinate their efforts with the regional offices of Indiana Landmarks. Additional duties for both interns may be assigned by the intern’s supervisor.
