Internship at Museum of Natural History – application deadline 7/29

  The North American Archaeology Department at the American Museum of Natural History is now accepting applications for our Fall Internship.  Our fall interns will staff the North American Archaeology (NAARCH) Lab and are considered to take part in fieldwork on St. Catherines Island, Georgia.  The NAARCH Lab handles, stores, and analyzes a wide variety of artifacts from an extensive temporal and spatial range.  Past interns have had the opportunity to work with lithics, Native American ceramics, historic period pottery, Spanish colonial material culture, and a large number of other material culture types. Analysis techniques include sorting of fine screen materials, basic lab organization, cataloging, and basic artifact analysis.  In addition to lab work, interns will also be considered to take part in our ongoing fieldwork program in Georgia.  Our fieldwork package supports room and board, transportation, and a stipend for three weeks.

 

    Individuals interested in joining the NAARCH internship should be highly motivated, patient, and detail-oriented.  We will be accepting applications from both upper level undergraduates as well as graduate students.  Individuals who have not yet completed their junior year need not apply unless they have extensive experience that off-sets their lack of academic training.  Prior archaeological experience in either the field or in the lab is not necessary, but will be a factor in our selection.

 

    Internship positions are unpaid volunteer positions with museum perks while working in the lab in New York City.  Course credit will be offered to those individuals currently enrolled in an accredited school of higher learning. The fieldwork portion offers a stipend for work completed.  The term of the internship will be from the end of August through December 2012, and the museum asks two to three days a week from its lab staff.  The field portion will run three weeks from mid-September to mid-October.

 

    Applications will be accepted until July 29, 2012.  Interested applicants should send a resume and a 1-page statement of purpose to ecottrell@amnh.org.  Please include contact information for three references. Applications may also be sent via mail to:

 

Elizabeth Cottrell

Anthropology Department

American Museum of Natural History

Central Park West at 79th Street

New York, New York 10024-5192

 

    The statement of purpose should briefly outline the applicant’s prior experience in archaeology as well as their future plans within the discipline.  Individuals with questions should feel free to emailecottrell@amnh.org at the NAARCH Lab.  Please visit our website at: http://research.amnh.org/anthropology/f/InternshipNAARCH_2012_2.pdf
