We are no longer accepting applications for the Clinical Administrative Assistant position for Spring/Summer 2014. Please check back for updates. Thank you for your interest in psychedelic science, medicine, and education!

MAPS is seeking interns in the following general areas for Summer/Fall 2014:

For more details on each position, please see the full descriptions below.

Please read the information below completely to ensure that you understand the requirements, and fill out our online application form.

All positions are unpaid, and unless otherwise noted, interns must be willing and able to work at our administrative offices in Santa Cruz, CA. Interns are expected to work an average of two days a week, unless otherwise noted. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer housing assistance at this time. Interns also receive a discount on MAPS merchandise and access to our staff library.

Our office is small, tight-knit, and passionate about the work we are doing, and we always welcome the new energy and skills of interns. We will do our best to give you work that excites you and assists you in your own career goals, whether in or beyond the field of psychedelic science. Interns currently enrolled as university students may receive credit for their time with us (as long as you assume the responsibility for figuring out the requirements for their institution) but applicants are not required to be current students. A diversity of ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Our needs are constantly changing, so if you do not see any listings that suit you, please check back.

Meanwhile, if you have questions that are not answered on this page, you can email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), and we will reply as soon as possible.

Events and Sales Assistant

Events and Sales interns assist with the management of our event presence (including our growing Visionary Art Gallery), as well as inventory tracking, eBay and webstore management, social media outreach and promotions, scheduling and booking, and event preparations. The ideal applicant is at home in both the office and the field, and capable of moving between them with ease. Strong interpersonal skills, attention to detail, a desire for networking, and a passion for MAPS’ work are required for this position; personal transportation, sales experience, graphic design experience, and detailed knowledge of MAPS’ research are preferred.

Thank you for your commitment, and good luck!
