Gehl - 2021 Summer Intern

Gehl is seeking candidates for paid internships in our studios in New York City and San Francisco for the summer of 2021. Applicants should be recent graduates or entering their final year of studies in a Masters program in Urban Design, Architecture, or Landscape Architecture. As an interdisciplinary firm that works across design, policy, strategy, and research we seek candidates who have demonstrated interest and experience developing projects that span across disciplines and celebrate people-first urbanism. While spatial skills and graphic skills are essential to this position, we are especially interested in candidates that can demonstrate an interest in social science, environmental policy, or public health.

Our mission is making cities for people, inclusively. We are committed to a building a diverse team and encourage candidates from under-represented communities to apply. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.

Send your CV, cover letter, and portfolio or selected works (10 pages max) by April 11th. Your application should highlight your interest in urbanism and experience and proficiency with design software and graphic visualization (such as Adobe Creative Suite, Rhino, SketchUP, website design, video editing, and other communication software), research, analysis, writing, sketching, working collaboratively, and strategic thinking and storytelling.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.


  • Applicants must be authorized to work in the U.S. for the duration of the internship

  • While we anticipate returning to our studios in New York and San Francisco in the future, at this time we are working remotely and candidates are not expected to relocate

  • Internship dates will be arranged with selected candidates. (Typically the internship is 3 months long)

  • Pay is $20/hour

  • Internships may be full- or part-time

  • Projects are high profile and varied across the Americas

  • Gehl is a global company. Applicants with proficiency in Spanish, French, and other languages in addition to English are encouraged to apply

  • A Gehl representative will reach out to qualified applicants if they are interested in an interview

  • For applicants graduating in May and interested in a potential full-time position, please apply for this internship as it could transition to a permanent position in September
