The Northeast Archeological Resources Program (NARP) is seeking to fill one 800-hour internship position at Hopewell Furance National Historic Site (NHS).

The intern will provide program support by carrying out project management tasks, including project tracking and scheduling; supporting communication between NARP, parks, and partners; and identifying equipment and overall project needs.

The intern will have the opportunity to work with professional National Park Service Archeologists and Cultural Resources staff on archeological field projects and assist with processing artifacts in an archeology laboratory. Likewise, the interns will engage their skills, creativity, and/or enthusiasm through photographing objects, using digital imaging software, creating social media and website content, and/or developing lesson plans.

The intern will assist the program and park staff at Hopewell Furnace NHS with the archeological investigation of a 19th-century homestead that had been occupied by an African American laborer at the furnace. This project will entail completing deliverables meant for public interpretation of the archeology at this site and writing a redacted report for distribution to park partners and the public. The intern will also provide overall support for public engagement, create interpretive materials related to precolonial land use and archeological resources, and conduct outreach in collaboration with the park’s Tribal partners.
