It took a while to get everything in place, but we are ready to start taking applications for summer internships in archaeology through Ilisaġvik College! They will involve learning about laboratory work and participating in some interesting and important research on walrus in the past. It will help prepare you to participate in some fieldwork that we hope to have coming up this summer and/or next, and you can also earn college credit.
I’ll be in Fairbanks working at the University of Alaska Museum on selecting samples from the collections there for the next two weeks. In the meantime, you can get an application packet from Susie Stine (852-0921). I’ll be interviewing the week of May 25 (not on Memorial Day) so get your applications in.
This is probably best for people who live in Barrow, since there is no housing with this internship.
