The Observatory offers three internships each year: summer, fall, and winter. The summer internship runs from mid-May to late August, the fall internship runs from late August to late December, and the winter internship runs from January to mid-May.
Interning at Mount Washington Observatory provides the opportunity to gain real-world experience while living atop the Northeast’s tallest peak at one of the most famous weather stations in the world.
Interns learn basic weather observation and recording procedures, assist with research projects, share the Observatory’s work with the public, and help maintain the weather station. Each internship is different, and varies based upon the skills, interests, and motivation level of the intern.
