The Delaware Tribe invites applications for a two year research position to
assist the Delaware Tribe’s Historic Preservation Office in carrying out the
objectives of a recently awarded NAGPRA consultation grant. We are seeking a
four-field anthropologist with specialization in eastern woodland archaeology
and experience with museum collections and GIS. M.A. is required; PH.D
preferred. Although this is initially a temporary position, we are interested in
a candidate who is able to help build the capacity of the Delaware Tribe’s
NAGPRA program and is willing to pursue external funding sources in order to
maintain the position on a full-time basis. The demonstrated ability to secure
external grant funding is therefore a plus.

The position will begin September 1, 2010 and will be housed within the Delaware
Tribe’s Historic Preservation Office at Emporia State University. The position
will require working on the upgrade and maintenance of our digital database of
museum inventories, maintaining our GIS database of Delaware sites and helping
us to complete our own research to support cultural affiliation claims to museum
collections. Frequent travel will be required in order to carry out the grant
objectives. To apply, please send a cover letter, vitae and the contact
information for three references to Brice Obermeyer, Delaware Tribe Historic
Preservation Office, 1417 West St., Emporia, KS 66801. Electronic applications
can be emailed to Brice Obermeyer.
