Hello Readers! We have three fascinating positions this week, two paid internships with the Register of Professional Archaeologists and one position with HDR. Check them out!

The Register of Professional Archaeologists is a community of professional archaeologists whose mission is to establish and adhere to standards and ethics that represent and adapt to the dynamic field of archaeology and to provide a resource for entities who rely on professional archaeology services.

The RPA is 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.

Students who would like to apply as an Ethics Intern should send the following to the RPA Ethics Committee at
