Indian health programs need dedicated health and allied health professionals to fill staffing needs — people like you who envision a career with a purpose and mission, and who are willing to commit to working in Indian communities where they can truly make a difference.

The mission of IHS is to raise the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level. Because of the IHS Scholarship Program, many qualified health professionals are given the opportunity to pursue their careers as well as help their own communities.

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.

For more about the IARC, visit http://iarc.sarweb.org.

Interns will devote their time to working on IARC education and programs, directed research and writing activities, and collections management and registration. 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.
