MNA’s Research Associate program is available for active, non-paid researchers, intended for researchers actively pursuing research projects that clearly support MNA’s mission. RA status is conferred by the MNA Director as a three year appointment, renewable on the anniversary of the original appointment. Both the original appointment and renewal process begin with an application letter to the MNA Director, either directly from the applicant or through the MNA Curator who will be directing or collaborating with the research. Research Associate appointments are available in all research departments at MNA. Please contact the Curator for each department for more information.
