Paid Research Opportunity for Anthropology Student – Clay Technologies and Past Foodways in the PNW Project

One hourly position open for an anthropology student (current or recent graduate) to conduct collections and library research for an archaeological project focused on the role of clay technology in past Pacific Northwest food preparation.  This pilot study is directed at collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing literature on regional clay technology.

The student will assist in library and collections research.  Tasks will include traveling to the Oregon and Washington State Historic Preservation Offices to conduct grey literature research, and to several local and regional museums (e.g. the Burke Museum in Seattle) to work with archives and collections.

Some prior experience in archaeology will be necessary to carry out this work, although non-archaeology students are encouraged to apply.  Working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel are required. Preference will be given to students available to work on the project for both Fall and Winter quarters; work may extend into Spring quarter as well.
