Per diem is $59 per day, with single occupancy hotel rooms. Lodging and cash per diem will be provided for all work days. Additional accommodations can be made for experienced candidates.
A bachelor’s degree in anthropology and attendance in a field school are required. Candidates need to have a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and a willingness and demonstrated ability to work and hike in adverse weather conditions in the difficult, often muddy terrain in the shoreline areas around the lakes. Stooping, bending and lifting are essential functions of the position.
