Overview

This internship is with the National Park Service, Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone is the world’s first National Park, and is the crown jewel of the National Park Service. It is also the core of one of the last nearly intact natural ecosystems in the Earth’s temperate zone. It has 2.2 million acres extending across Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, with highly diverse environments and terrain including high altitude lakes, plateaus, and mountains ranges, river valleys, lodge pole pine forests, and active tectonic and thermal areas. It is also home to a huge variety of natural resources including grizzly and black bears, wolves, pika, bison, elk, pronghorn antelope, 322 bird species, 1350 species of plants, and unique extremophiles. Cultural resources include an archaeological record documenting the 12,000 year presence of prehistoric and historic period Native Americans, and historic period explorers, trappers, the US military, and tourists. The Park has documented over 2,200 archaeological sites, with only 3% of its area investigated.  The Park Archaeologist will supervise the intern; additional volunteers/interns will also likely be working with the team during the summer of 2013.

Position Description

The archaeology intern work as part of a team responsible for inventory, monitoring, and evaluation of archeological resources within the park. The intern will have a 40 hour work week, Mondays-Thursdays, 7AM-5:30PM. Compensatory time off for any additional hours worked during extended projects will be determined by the Park Archaeologist and discussed in advance with the intern. While the intern will be based at the Heritage Research Center (HRC), overnight stays involving backcountry camping or use of cabins or dorms in the interior may occur.

Field survey is among the most important duties, involving archaeological reconnaissance with the archeology team. The intern will have various field duties, such as taking field notes, creating field maps, preparing site condition assessments, taking photos, and operating a GPS unit. Field duties may also include excavating shovel test pits or larger excavation units, screening material, recording/collecting artifacts, and recording soils data. Survey areas can be as close as one mile or as far as 75 miles from the HRC, and often significant time is spent hiking and/or driving in a government vehicle.

Another important part of the intern’s duties is lab work. The intern will collect information for planning new fieldwork using maps and site files in the lab,enter photos and associated data into the archaeology lab’s photo database, prepare archaeological site forms, draft site maps using ArcMap GIS, work with the park’s Spatial Analysis Center, and analyze and catalogue artifacts for curation at the HRC.

Qualifications

This internship is open to all currently enrolled Stanford students. The intern must be able to work both independently and as a member of a team. The intern must be able to hike up to fifteen miles daily at high elevations (over 6,000 feet AMSL), carrying loads up to 30 lbs.

Completion of at least one archaeology course is required, with a preference for applicants who have also completed an archaeological field school. Pursuit of a degree or a minor in archaeology or anthropology, and/or documented interest in either discipline is highly desired.

The intern must be comfortable living in a small town and dorm environment for ten weeks. A personal vehicle must be available for the duration of the internship.

This internship is with the National Park Service, Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone is the world’s first National Park, and is the crown jewel of the National Park Service. It is also the core of one of the last nearly intact natural ecosystems in the Earth’s temperate zone. It has 2.2 million acres extending across Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, with highly diverse environments and terrain including high altitude lakes, plateaus, and mountains ranges, river valleys, lodge pole pine forests, and active tectonic and thermal areas. It is also home to a huge variety of natural resources including grizzly and black bears, wolves, pika, bison, elk, pronghorn antelope, 322 bird species, 1350 species of plants, and unique extremophiles. Cultural resources include an archaeological record documenting the 12,000 year presence of prehistoric and historic period Native Americans, and historic period explorers, trappers, the US military, and tourists. The Park has documented over 2,200 archaeological sites, with only 3% of its area investigated.  The Park Archaeologist will supervise the intern; additional volunteers/interns will also likely be working with the team during the summer of 2013.

The archaeology intern work as part of a team responsible for inventory, monitoring, and evaluation of archeological resources within the park. The intern will have a 40 hour work week, Mondays-Thursdays, 7AM-5:30PM. Compensatory time off for any additional hours worked during extended projects will be determined by the Park Archaeologist and discussed in advance with the intern. While the intern will be based at the Heritage Research Center (HRC), overnight stays involving backcountry camping or use of cabins or dorms in the interior may occur.

Field survey is among the most important duties, involving archaeological reconnaissance with the archeology team. The intern will have various field duties, such as taking field notes, creating field maps, preparing site condition assessments, taking photos, and operating a GPS unit. Field duties may also include excavating shovel test pits or larger excavation units, screening material, recording/collecting artifacts, and recording soils data. Survey areas can be as close as one mile or as far as 75 miles from the HRC, and often significant time is spent hiking and/or driving in a government vehicle.

Another important part of the intern’s duties is lab work. The intern will collect information for planning new fieldwork using maps and site files in the lab,enter photos and associated data into the archaeology lab’s photo database, prepare archaeological site forms, draft site maps using ArcMap GIS, work with the park’s Spatial Analysis Center, and analyze and catalogue artifacts for curation at the HRC.

Summary: 
<p>This position is a field and laboratory based internship with the Archaeology Program in Yellowstone National Park, based at the Yellowstone Heritage and Research Center in Gardiner, Montana.</p>
Organizational Overview: 
<p>This internship is with the National Park Service, Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone is the world&rsquo;s first National Park, and is the crown jewel of the National Park Service. It is also the core of one of the last nearly intact natural ecosystems in the Earth&rsquo;s temperate zone. It has 2.2 million acres extending across Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, with highly diverse environments and terrain including high altitude lakes, plateaus, and mountains ranges, river valleys, lodge pole pine forests, and active tectonic and thermal areas. It is also home to a huge variety of natural resources including grizzly and black bears, wolves, pika, bison, elk, pronghorn antelope, 322 bird species, 1350 species of plants, and unique extremophiles. Cultural resources include an archaeological record documenting the 12,000 year presence of prehistoric and historic period Native Americans, and historic period explorers, trappers, the US military, and tourists. The Park has documented over 2,200 archaeological sites, with only 3% of its area investigated. &nbsp;The Park Archaeologist will supervise the intern; additional volunteers/interns will also likely be working with the team during the summer of 2013.</p>
Position Description: 
<p>The archaeology intern work as part of a team responsible for inventory, monitoring, and evaluation of archeological resources within the park. The intern will have a 40 hour work week, Mondays-Thursdays, 7AM-5:30PM.

While the intern will be based at the Heritage Research Center (HRC), overnight stays involving backcountry camping or use of cabins or dorms in the interior may occur.</p> <p>Field survey is among the most important duties, involving archaeological reconnaissance with the archeology team. The intern will have various field duties, such as taking field notes, creating field maps, preparing site condition assessments, taking photos, and operating a GPS unit. Field duties may also include excavating shovel test pits or larger excavation units, screening material, recording/collecting artifacts, and recording soils data. Survey areas can be as close as one mile or as far as 75 miles from the HRC, and often significant time is spent hiking and/or driving in a government vehicle.</p> <p>Another important part of the intern&rsquo;s duties is lab work. The intern will collect information for planning new fieldwork using maps and site files in the lab,enter photos and associated data into the archaeology lab&rsquo;s photo database, prepare archaeological site forms, draft site maps using ArcMap GIS, work with the park&rsquo;s Spatial Analysis Center, and analyze and catalogue artifacts for curation at the HRC.</p>
Qualifications: 
<p>This internship is open to all currently enrolled Stanford students. The intern must be able to work both independently and as a member of a team. The intern must be able to hike up to fifteen miles daily at high elevations (over 6,000 feet AMSL), carrying loads up to 30 lbs.</p> <p>Completion of at least one archaeology course is required, with a preference for applicants who have also completed an archaeological field school.
