Archaeological Laboratory Technician

AECOM is opening an internship position for an Archaeological Laboratory Technician to assist the Laboratory Director on an archaeological investigation of prehistoric sites bordering the Delaware River in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The internship entails processing all artifacts recovered from the excavations to standards defined by the New Jersey State Museum and the Pennsylvania State Museum. Processing activities may include, but are not necessarily limited to: wet washing and dry brushing of artifacts, labeling artifacts for curation, data entry of artifact catalog information and photographing artifacts. Additional laboratory duties may include processing soil samples and preparing artifact and/or soil samples for shipment to specialized laboratories for additional analysis. Some limited fieldwork may also be required. Knowledge of data base programs (Access) and spreadsheets (Excel) is a plus.
The internship is based out of our Trenton, New Jersey office, but the intern will be required to have personal transportation to the field laboratory outside of Yardley, Pennsylvania. The internship will last for approximately three months- October through December, 2010.
