Site Preservation Internship

The Site Preservation Program of the Archaeological Institute of America seeks interns to take on special projects such as creating advocacy networks and informational reports, organizing site preservation related workshops and conferences, and doing research to aid us in our attempt to define best practices in the field.  Candidates should be pursuing an advanced degree in heritage management, archaeology, or a related field. 

For the summer of 2011, internship duties included creating advocacy networks and informational reports for select countries in the Near East and North Africa.  This was accomplished by developing communication networks between professionals (especially AIA members) working with cultural resources in the individual countries, as well as by compiling a report detailing the nature of heritage management frameworks within those countries.  The intern identified key governmental and non governmental figures with influence over cultural resources, national policies related to protecting heritage, and the general state of archaeological materials within the nation.

The schedule for the internship is flexible and should be planned in consultation with AIA staff.  The intern is expected to work two hundred hours and the internship will be considered completed once a final project is submitted.  The internship includes a modest stipend to help defray living expenses.

The deadline to apply for the Summer 2013 internship is January 1, 2013.  Please submit your application, along with a resume and transcript (offical or unofficial) to
