The position requires hand sketching and hand measuring in the field and the production of detailed, as-built, measured drawings of historic sites and landscapes in AutoCAD.

The position is supervised by a permanent member of the Heritage Documentation Programs (HABS/HAER/HALS) staff. 

Applicants should have completed at least three years in an accredited program of architecture or pursuing a degree / certificate in Historic Preservation. Coursework in an accredited design major or technical/computer aided drafting is strongly recommended (e.g. Architecture, Architectural History, Computer Aided Design and Drafting, Historic Preservation, etc.).

Historically Black Colleges and Universities Internship Program (HBCUI): This program is designed to link college students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU's) to internship experiences at NPS sites and program offices. The internship exposes quality diverse students and the institutions they represent to a variety of practical internships projects and federal careers over the summer, culminating in a Leadership and Careers workshop at the end. This program is administered by our national NPS partner Greening Youth Foundation (GYF) (http://www.gyfoundation.org). HBCUI positions are fully funded by WASO Youth Programs.
