The Register of Professional Archaeologists is pleased to announce its fourth annual call for applications for our Summer Ethics Internship! Over the past three years, we have been heartened by how much the internship has grown and what our interns have accomplished. Archaeologicalethics.org, the online digital database co-sponsored by the Register of Professional Archaeologists and CIfA, now lists over 700 resources on archaeological ethics.
We are seeking two graduate students who have an interest in archaeological ethics; are self-directed; are available to work approximately 10 hours a week; have access to the internet and institutional databases, and can work remotely from their home. Familiarity with WordPress or database management is preferred, but not required.
The interns will work together and with the Register’s Ethics Committee on updating and maintaining the database, compiling ethical scenarios for student Ethics Bowls, developing strategies to promote the database for public, online, and academic education, and other tasks related to the organization’s various ethics initiatives.
Both positions will run from June through August 2020. The Ethics Interns will each receive a stipend of US $1,500.
Students who would like to apply as an Ethics Intern should send the following to the RPA Ethics Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org:
Please group application materials into a single PDF file. A final step in the hiring process will be for candidates to arrange reference calls. If asked for an interview, you will be asked to set up a call between the committee and one of your referees.
