Eight different internship opportunities are available this summer for University of Iowa PhD students in the humanities or humanities-adjacent fields through the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies' Humanities for the Public Good (HPG) program.
For OSA's second year as HPG host, we are seeking a student to help review and revise training materials used statewide to educate the interest public in archaeology basics and modernize the program by strategizing an online public eLearning course that increases the program's accessibility and availability! Learn more here.
Interns should expect to work 30 hours a week for eight weeks: June 5 through July 28. This includes approximately three hours each week dedicated to cohort meetings, writing, and other assignments. All work is intended to be completed on-site at the Office of the State Archaeologist, located on south Clinton Street. Interns receive $5,000 on successful completion of their position.
Learn about OSA's internship from last year. Rebekah Erdman, musicology PhD, has spent the summer working at the Office of the State Archaeologist to strategize a more streamlined and searchable version of our lithics assemblage database with the public and researchers!
