Research Position Opening
The Delaware Tribe invites applications for a two year research position to assist the Delaware Tribe’s Historic Preservation Office in carrying out the objectives of a recently awarded NAGPRA consultation grant. We are seeking a four-field anthropologist with specialization in eastern woodland archaeology and experience with museum collections and GIS. M.A. is required; PH.D preferred. Although this is initially a temporary position, we are interested in a candidate who is able to help build the capacity of the Delaware Tribe’s NAGPRA program and is willing to pursue external funding sources in order to maintain the position on a full-time basis. The demonstrated ability to secure external grant funding is therefore a plus. The position will begin September 1, 2010 and will be housed within the Delaware Tribe’s Historic Preservation Office at Emporia State University. The position will require working on the upgrade and maintenance of our digital database of museum inventories, maintaining our GIS database of Delaware sites and helping us to complete our own research to support cultural affiliation claims to museum collections. Frequent travel will be required in order to carry out the grant objectives. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply, please send a cover letter, vitae and the contact information for three references to Brice Obermeyer, Delaware Tribe Historic Preservation Office, 1417 West St., Emporia, KS 66801. Electronic applications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
