Internships
MAP is always looking for talented candidates to bring a new and different perspective at work.

MAP’s internship programmes provide the opportunity to learn about the operations of a nonprofit art institution, and offer experiences in working with rare and diverse artworks.

The museum is always looking for talented candidates to bring a new and different perspective at work, and MAP’s internships are open to applicants of all nationalities. There are currently three kinds of internship opportunities at MAP for those interested in careers in art and museums – Experience, Research, and Curatorial. 

Experience Internships

Open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, these internships present candidates with the opportunity to gain professional experience and insight in the museum field.

Research Internships

These internships are available only to graduate students and recent graduates. Allowing candidates to further their own research interests, these internships provide access to MAP’s unique and exemplary collections to help with their projects and an opportunity to work with MAP’s curators, archivists and educators.

Curatorial Internships

Available only to students currently enrolled in a college or research institution, these internships allow candidates to work with MAP’s unique collections, and gain curatorial and archival experience through working closely with the Museum’s Exhibitions and Collections teams. The internship culminates in a curatorial proposal that may be executed as an exhibition back at their own universities, based on the agreement of all parties. As an initiative of the Museum of Art & Photography Foundation, an organisation established to foster cultural collaboration between the United States of America and India, two curatorial intern positions are reserved each year for students from universities in the USA.
