Conservation Student Internships in Turkey
2014 Season

The Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archaeology expedition is
seeking two conservation student interns for the summer of 2014.
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 Kalehoyuk 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.

The internships last six weeks and can take place from June 30 -
August 9, 2014 or from August 11 -September 20, 2014. 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 perform 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 31, 2014. X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy is 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 21, 2013.  Questions concerning the
internship should be sent by email.

Interns will be selected by the end of November since visa
applications must be submitted in early December 2013.
