Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program

The Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC or The Center) is a support operation of the National Park Service's Southeast Region. The Center conducts and shares high-quality anthropological research based on multi-disciplinary methods and cutting-edge science, providing the best archeological and collections management assistance possible to national parks and our partners. In assisting parks with their cultural resource management needs, SEAC facilitates the long-term production of archeological resources, compiling, utilizing, and disseminating the archeological information obtained from them. SEAC maintains impeccable ethical standards by reporting timely research findings to park, public, and professional audiences. In addition to annually generating numerous archeological reports as mandated by federal law and park operations, the Center is the repository for over eight million artifacts that make up the Southeast Region's research collections and cultural database.

The Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) of the National Park Service (NPS) supports planning and project reviews in 71 national park units throughout the Southeast. Part of that support is managing the database and GIS for archeological sites in the region. This 800-hour internship will focus on new data and reconciling records in the National Park Service’s Cultural Resources Inventory System (CRIS) for the archeological sites. The successful candidate will enter information in CRIS, perform a variety of searches to identify gaps and conflicts in the existing data, then repair the problems, assist with scanning archeological survey reports and other related tasks. The intern will also access GIS data for the sites, but GIS experience is not required.

The intern will be mentored and monitored by the regional CRIS coordinator for archeological sites and will work closely with staff at SEAC who are experts with CRIS. The internship will start in early Spring, 2024.

This position is part of the Internship Program administered by the National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE). The program is a partnership between the National Park Service and NCPE. Eligibility requirements apply; visit for details and instructions on how to apply.
