The Maryland Historical Trust (Trust) is seeking candidates for its 2017 Summer Internship in Archeology. Interns serve a maximum of 400 hours over a period of 10 consecutive weeks to begin on or about May 24, 2017. Current graduate students in anthropology/archeology are preferred; students currently enrolled in or who have recently graduated from an accredited undergraduate program in anthropology/archeology or other closely related field are encouraged to apply.
The intern will work under the general supervision of the Chief Archeologist and time will be divided between office/laboratory and field work in support of the Trust’s terrestrial and maritime archeology programs.
Field work will take place in a variety of settings and involve use of hand tools and electronic surveying equipment, small boats, canoes and/or kayaks. It will include support activities associated with the Annual Tyler Bastian Field Session in Maryland Archeology, marine geophysical and remote sensing surveys, and archeological site visits and inspections. Office work is expected to include cataloging, data processing, geodatabase development, and/or research depending on the ability and interest of the successful candidate.
Interns will receive a total amount not to exceed $5,000.00 paid in bi-weekly increments based on the number of hours worked at a rate of $12.50 per hour.
