Ralph Appelbaum Associates, the world’s largest museum planning and interpretive design firm, is offering paid internships to qualified undergraduate students for Spring 2023. Recent graduates, graduate students, and emerging professionals are also welcome to apply. RAA internships can be completed remotely, in our New York studio space, or a combination thereof. All applicants are encouraged to apply regardless of location within the US.
Internships are open to interested persons looking to further their academic and/or career goals in museums and cultural institutions and/or related areas. Interns will gain valuable work experience and professional development in a dynamic, collaborative, and creative environment.
The 3D Design Intern will work under the guidance of the Project Manager and Senior 3D Designers to help produce architectural exhibit elements. At the heart of RAA’s design philosophy is the desire to seamlessly integrate the visitor experience and the architectural environment. For most projects, RAA works closely with architectural partners to maximize the potential of the building to support the visitor experience and facilitate operations. The 3D Design staff also works directly with the 2D designers, Content staff, consultants (lighting, audio/visual, media, etc.), and clients to determine exhibition design and layout. Candidates should have strong conceptual ability and a range of skills.
