This internship is offered by the Department of Anthropology to currently enrolled, undergraduate or graduate-level students of Native American descent. Priority is given to students interested in anthropology or archaeology. The intern will participate in all aspects of museum-based science activities, including curatorial research and collections management activities. They may also participate in fieldwork, should the need arise. Daily duties will vary by project, but the candidate can expect to assist curators and collections managers in artifact inventory, processing, movement, cataloguing, data entry and analysis. Fieldwork may consist of site survey and test excavations. The intern will answer directly to either one of the Curators of Archaeology, the Curator of Anthropology, or the Anthropology Collections Manager, depending on the assignments. The possibility remains for small-scale research projects tailored to the intern's personal interests. Anthropology and/or Archaeology experience preferred.
Intern will receive payment to help offset expenses for a 10 week internship; scheduling is flexible, although a summer schedule is preferred. Intern will submit a written report of activities conducted at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science at the end of the term.
