The National Park Service (NPS) South Atlantic-Gulf Region seeks a motivated individual with an interest in applied cultural anthropology to support the region’s Cultural Anthropology Program. Applications close on October 25, 2021.

Primary duties include reviewing existing ethnographic reports; conducting supplementary research; and working closely with the regional cultural anthropologist, park staff, and traditionally associated groups as appropriate to verify ethnographic data before entering it in the Cultural Resources Inventory System (CRIS). Secondary duties include developing a prioritized list of ethnographic research needs for each NPS unit, establishing a list of qualified and interested researchers to conduct future ethnographic studies, and creating templates and guides to assist external partners in conducting ethnographic research that meets NPS standards.

Additional work could include supporting Cultural Anthropology Program projects and goals; attending consultation meetings with tribes and other traditionally associated groups; and updating tribal contacts and areas of interest. This internship covers 930 hours of work at $15/hour plus a housing/travel stipend. Remote work is permitted, but the successful candidate will be required to travel to the regional office in Atlanta, GA to receive orientation and pick up equipment.
