The School for Advanced Research, Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) offers two nine-month internships to Native individuals who are recent college graduates, current graduate students, or junior museum professionals interested in furthering their professional museum experience and enhancing their intellectual capacity for contributing to the expanding field and discourse of museum studies. The internships, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, include a $2200 monthly stipend, housing, book allowance, travel to one professional conference, and reimbursable travel to and from SAR. The deadline to apply is March 30, 2011.
Established in 1978, the IARC houses a collection of over 12,000 items of Native art of the Southwest. The goal of IARC is to bridge the divide between art/creativity and research/scholarship by supporting initiatives and projects that illuminate the intersections of the social sciences, humanities, and arts.

In addition to daily duties, specific requirements include presenting a research paper at the SAR Colloquium Series; attending a national conference; providing tours of the IARC collection; and working on outreach initiatives to Native communities.
