Maritime Archaeologist: WLCC

Clemson Archaeology Job 2018

Clemson University is seeking an Archaeologist to assist with the ongoing investigation and analysis of the submarine H.L. Hunley (1864) and its associated artifacts, as well as participating in other specialized projects as needed. The archaeologist will be expected to participate in the archaeological documentation and research related to the H.L Hunley Project, while working closely with the conservation and scientific teams of the Warren Lasch Conservation Center (WLCC).  The archaeologist will also be expected to produce regular reports of their work, present research to the public and at professional or academic conferences, and contribute to publication in peer-reviewed journals.

NPS Archaeologist/Diver

In this position you will serve as an Archeologist with the Submerged Resources Center (SRC) with duties consisting primarily of underwater archeological documentation and analysis and marine remote sensing survey and documentation of submerged cultural resources throughout the National Park System and with partner agencies on a state, national and international level. Because of equipment intensive field operations are done under the water, incumbent will be around water bodies involved in diving and boating activities. Because almost all field operations involve work in parks, you will be expected to travel extensively (e.g. up to seven months per years) and sometimes for long durations (e.g. 90 days or more). You will be expected to engage in diving operations, classified by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) as hazardous duty.

Duties will be developmental in nature when filled below the full performance level.

Post Doc Maritime Anthropology

Applications are invited for two 3 years positions as Postdoctoral Fellow (SKO 1352) of Social Anthropology to be based at the Department of Social Anthropology.

The positions will be part of the research project “(Dis-)Assembling the Life Cycle of Container Ships. Global Ethnographic explorations into Maritime Working Lives”, lead by associate professor Elisabeth Schober, and funded by The Research Council of Norway.

Shipbuilding, shipping, and ship-breaking are three rather unfamiliar maritime industries that make up the most crucial nodes enabling the life cycle of a container ship. The objective of the project is to shed new light on the globe-spanning networks around these vessels, and on the workers that are involved in making, maintaining, and breaking the ships. By uniting three ethnographic sub-projects – one focusing on shipbuilding, one on shipping, and one on ship-breaking – the focus is also on the connections and disjunctures between the different components that make, maintain, and break container ships. The combination of ethnography with a large-scale “interpretive” comparison-making perspective will allow for the exploration of some of the key social, political and economic relations that feed into global capitalism today. More information about the project can be obtained at the website or from associate professor Elisabeth Schober.
