The Newfoundland and Labrador Archaeological Society (NLAS) is keen on engaging with private collectors of archaeological material. Under the Community Collections Archaeological Research Project (CCARP) the NLAS hopes to locate and record these private collections as well as facilitate public education and awareness of heritage and archaeological resources.
In order to complete the 2015 project the NLAS is looking for a graduate student in archaeology or someone with equivalent experience who is willing to work for us and analyze a collection of pre-contact lithic artifacts from the Bonavista Bay area. We would prefer if the applicants had some Public speaking experience and a comfort with the media (print, radio, tv). Priority will be given to archaeologists who are early in their career. The project will run from November 23, 2015 to March 1, 2016. Salary is based on 15 days work at $15/hr. Travel, accommodation, and a per diem are covered for a two day return trip from St. John’s to Lumsden, NL. Please see the attached PDF Terms of Reference for details.
