Dayton Society of Natural History Internship Program

Dayton Society of Natural History Internship Program

June 11 – August 3, 2012

The Dayton Society of Natural History is offering four full-time paid intern positions for college and graduate students interested in Midwestern prehistory. Emphasis will be placed on the excavation of Late Prehistoric sites in Dayton, Ohio, dating to approximately A.D. 1300. The internship includes excavation of a habitation site, 33 My 127, and experimental architectural reconstruction of prehistoric structures at SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park and Fort Ancient State Memorial.

Candidates are expected to be anthropology majors or in a closely-related discipline. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Excavation experience is desirable, but not required. Housing is available for non-local participants and is partially subsidized by DSNH. Participants must be present for the entire eight weeks, U.S. citizens or authorized to work in the U.S., and at least 18 years old. DSNH is a private, non-profit, equal opportunity employer.

The application deadline is March 16, 2012. For more information and application instructions, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
