RPA seeking two graduate students for paid internships for summer 2021

The Register of Professional Archaeologists (RPA) is pleased to announce its fifth annual call for applications for our Summer Ethics Internship!

Over the past four years, we have been heartened by how much the internship has grown and what our interns have accomplished. The Archaeological Ethics Database (http://www.archaeologicalethics.org), the online digital database co-sponsored by the Register and CIfA, now lists over 800 resources on archaeological ethics.

We recognize that this is a precarious and difficult time for many graduate students and that a lot of summer fieldwork continues to have been put on hold. To try to alleviate some of the financial stress, we are offering two (2) paid intern positions for Summer 2021.

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 Register’s various ethics initiatives.

Both positions will run from June through August 2021. The Ethics Interns will each receive a stipend of $1,500 USD.

The deadline for applications is Monday, May 17, 2021. For any questions, please contact the chair for our Ethics Committee, Kenneth Aitchison at ethics@rpanet.org.
