Hunter Research offers paid internships for college students interested in an introduction to private-sector cultural resources management. Internships normally are for students enrolled in anthropology, archaeology, history, historic preservation or related programs, and who are planning for, or already committed to, a career in cultural resource management or historic preservation. We are happy to coordinate with faculty to ensure that the internship experience meets requirements for college credit.

Hunter Research has openings for up to two internships concurrently during the fall and spring semesters of each academic school year.  We review applications for the fall in July and applications for spring in December. We carefully review applications to determine if we can offer a purposeful experience that meets a student’s individual needs.

Application is open to anyone over the age of 18 with preference to currently enrolled students who have maintained an overall G.P.A of no less than 3.25 in the previous 12 months. Internships are based at our main office in Trenton, but some training may require travel to archaeological sites or research libraries in the region.  A current driver’s license and access to an automobile may be a requirement for some internship opportunities.

To be considered for an internship, please send a letter of interest to  Include information about your current educational goals and G.P.A., past work experience, availability during weekdays, current driver’s license and access to a vehicle, and the name of your college advisor, enrollment status, and the anticipated dates and duration of the proposed internship (e.g., fall/spring semester).  A resume is helpful.  If possible, indicate your area(s) of interest (e.g., archaeology, historic research, historic architecture, field work, laboratory, etc.). Please be as specific as possible so that we can ensure the fit is right for you.
