Archaeological Conservation student internships
Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archaeology expedition

2013 Season

The Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archaeology expedition is
seeking two conservation student interns for the summer of 2013.
Priority will be given to students currently enrolled in a
conservation program. Students must be fluent in the English
language. The Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archaeology has
started excavating two new sites, located approximately 20 to 30 km
from Kaman in Central Anatolia, in addition to Kalehayuk which has
been ongoing since 1986. The primary cultural levels are Hittite,
Phrygian, and Islamic. Interns have the opportunity to participate
in an active conservation program that emphasizes fieldwork,
preventive approaches to archaeological conservation, and research.

Each internship will last six weeks: the first will run from July
2,2013 to August 13, 2013 and the second will run from August 14 to
September 25, 2013. The excavation provides a stipend of $US 40 per
day, based on a six day workweek. Students participate in the
everyday conservation activities of the field lab. A well-equipped
field lab and comfortable living facilities compensate the long
workday (starting at 5:00 am). Students have the opportunity to
collaborate with an international team of archaeologists,
osteoarchaeologists, archaeobotanists, etc. English is the primary
language at the site. Students are requested to cover the cost of
their room and board (10$ per day, 7 days per week), all
transportation costs, visa (varies with nationality), and residence
fee (varies with nationality, between 150 and 200$).

Interns carry out a research project that begins prior to arriving
at the site. Depending on the project developed between the intern
and the excavation's Conservation Director, this first phase may
consist of a literature review. The research provides an opportunity
to gain familiarity with the site prior to arrival, and contributes
in a beneficial way to our conservation program. A field component
of the research is designed into each project, to be implemented on
site. The research results in a formal report submitted to the
excavation's journal, Anatolian Archaeological Studies, published by
the Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archaeology, to be completed by
October 30, 2013. XRF and FTIR are available at the site.

Applicants should email a curriculum vitae, a short letter of
interest, and names and contact information for three professional
references by November 15, 2012. Letters of recommendation are not
required. Questions concerning the internship should be sent by
email. Interns will be selected by December 1, 2012, since visa
applications are submitted in December 2012.
