The 2014 Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology (SIMA) is a graduate student summer training program in museum research methods offered through the Department of Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History with major funding from the Cultural Anthropology Program of the National Science Foundation.

During four weeks of intensive training in seminars and hands-on workshops at the museum and an off-site collections facility, graduate students are introduced to the scope of collections and their potential as data. Students become acquainted with strategies for navigating museum systems, learn to select methods to examine and analyze museum specimens, and consider a range of theoretical issues that collections-based research may address while carrying out preliminary data collection on a topic of their choosing and developing a prospectus for future research. The program is equally appropriate for newcomers to the museum setting or those who have prior experience.

Applications are due March 1 for the June 23-July 18 Summer Institute.
