Field Work Opportunity: Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab

The Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory (MAC Lab) at Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum in St. Leonard is seeking a student for a paid internship.  You will work on the park’s Public Archaeology program, assisting staff archaeologists in working with the public to excavate an 17th-century site on the park grounds. The fieldwork portion of this program will be held on Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays in May/early June. After completion of the fieldwork, the intern will wash, label, and catalog artifacts excavated during the field session, and do data entry for the project.  Some additional archaeological fieldwork might also take place. 

This internship will give you valuable archaeological field and lab skills that could be applied to your future education or a career in museums or archaeology.  The internship pays $15/hour for 400 hours of work.  It will run through the late spring and early fall of 2023, but the weekly schedule can be flexible once the May/early June fieldwork has been completed.  If you want class credit for the internship, we will work with you and the College/University to try to make that happen.

If you are interested in the MAC Lab internship, send your resume to Scott Strickland at [email protected] or call 410-586-8554 for more information.  Applications will be accepted until March 10, 2023.
