Crime Lab Internships

 

There are a limited number of internships each year, offered when a specific project has been identified that furthers the mission of the laboratories. Internships are usually offered to college students in their Junior or Senior year in a science degree program. Prospective interns must be able to pass an extensive background check and must sign a confidentiality agreement. Internships at the laboratory are not paid positions.

 

For more information or to apply, contact Kathy Mahnke at 414-382-7500 or mahnkeka@doj.state.wi.us.

 

(Note: due to the nature of the work and the process required to bring someone into the lab, short-term job shadowing is not available for high school students. College students enrolled in a degree program that is focused toward a career in forensics are occasionally accepted on a case-by-case basis and based on lab resources.)
