Positions at Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program (LAMP) and St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum

From: Norine G. Carroll <noricar<-a>
Date: Monday, June 2, 2014
Assistant Archaeological Conservator and
Archaeological Conservation Technician
The Lighthouse Maritime Archaeological Program (LAMP)
and the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum

The Lighthouse Maritime Archaeological Program (LAMP) and the St.
Augustine Lighthouse and Museum are seeking two positions, one
full-time Assistant Archaeological Conservator and one part-time
Archaeological Conservation Technician, to start in July 2014.

These positions are grant-funded and will last two years (July 2014
through June 2016).  The primary objective of these positions will
be to assist LAMP's Archaeological Conservator in the treatment of
artifacts recovered from the Storm Wreck, a Loyalist refugee vessel
lost at the end of the American Revolution in December 1782 offshore
St. Augustine.  A significant assemblage of material culture has
been recovered from the shipwreck to date, including cannons,
firearms, cauldrons and other cookware, tableware, buttons, buckles,
other personal items, tools, hardware, ship's equipment,
navigational instruments, and the ship's bell.  Successful
applicants will have appropriate experience and training in the
conservation of waterlogged archaeological materials, and will be
able to interact with the public as our conservation laboratory is
housed on the museum grounds and engages with the public whenever
appropriate.

The Museum may be able to provide housing to successful applicants,
in a dorm-like setting shared with other program participants
(students, interns, visiting scientists, etc.), if desired.

Job descriptions for the two positions are available at:

The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum is the premier maritime
museum located at the U.S.A.'s oldest port, St. Augustine, Florida.
Our mission is to Discover, Preserve, Present, and Keep Alive the
Stories of the Nation's Oldest Port.  LAMP, the Lighthouse
Archaeological Maritime Program, is the research arm of the Museum.
LAMP conducts archaeological and historical research, archaeological
conservation, traditional wooden boatbuilding, and other activities
to realize the mission of the Museum. LAMP has been excavating the
Storm Wreck since 2010 and with the Museum is planning a major
exhibit focusing on this Revolutionary War shipwreck to open around
late 2016.  The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum and LAMP are
equal opportunity employers.
