The Louisiana State Police Crime Laboratory provides unpaid, academically oriented internships for baccalaureate- and graduate-level students with career aspirations in the forensic sciences. Interns will gain experience and training by working in a forensic discipline. Internships typically run for an academic semester, such as Spring, Summer, or Fall. Internships offer an opportunity to work in a large, full-service forensic laboratory, allowing participants to network in a professional environment, explore career options, gain knowledge and skills that complement their academic studies and build resumes. Interns will not perform independent casework on evidence.
Preference will be given to students who are at least at a junior undergraduate level, who have strong academic and/or community service achievements, and who are highly motivated and interested in a career in forensic science.
