We’re Hiring for 2024-2025!

The Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Research Group is hiring student researchers to form the 2024-2025 cohort! Students researchers will have the opportunity to gain experience in archaeological methods, mapping, 3D modeling, and geographic information systems working together on ongoing research and preservation projects with community partners in North Carolina, Alabama, and Virginia, including projects based in Winston-Salem and Wake Forest, North Carolina. This includes a week long archaeological training session at James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange, Virginia, where students will learn how to conduct archaeological excavations, learn about how archaeology can inform interpretation, and using digital tools for excavation. Students will work on mapping the Odd Fellows Cemetery, building 3D models of sites, and be eligible for the Montpelier Archaeology Field School in June of 2025.

Students are also eligible to receive credit for a portion of their experience, receiving 1 credit for the week long training, and one credit each for fall and spring semesters. Students will be paid for all additional hours beyond the three credit hours, and should expect to commit 9 hours a week to the program for the fall and spring semesters. We are excited to offer positions for students from all college and universities in the Winston-Salem area. Students interested in archaeology, history, GIS, anthropology, African American Studies, and related fields should consider applying, but all disciplines are welcome.
