The Department of Anthropology hires student hourly employees for a variety of purposes. Some faculty hire students to support research activities or for assistance with some courses. Anthropology may also hire students to support the administration of the academic programs. If you are a CU student and interested in working for the Anthropology Department, positions will be posted when they are available.
The department of Anthropology at CU Boulder is searching for a Student Assistant II to work ~ 8 hours per week beginning March 1, 2021 and continuing through the end of the spring semester. This position has the potential to continue at a minimum of 50% through summer, depending on the applicant's availability.
The position will compile data from excavation reports for Romano-British archaeological sites and incorporate these into the database created for the Rural Settlement of Roman Britain project: The Rural Settlement of Roman Britain: Introduction (archaeologydataservice.ac.uk) under the immediate supervision of Dr. Scott Ortman. The work could be done from anywhere using online resources and PDF scans of reports provided by our collaborators in the UK. The applicant will be someone who is comfortable working with Excel and Access, and with mining excavation reports to find relevant information. We will have a defined data entry system. The assistant will need to be able to work independently and figure things out much of the time, but also know when to ask questions.
Anthropology offers Teaching Assistant (TA) and Graduate Part-Time Instructor ((GPTI) positions to graduate students.

These positions are part of the departmental funding opportunities offered to current and new incoming graduate students, and it is important to point out that graduate students must be active and enrolled or recently admitted in the Department before being eligible for these positions. If you need additional information, please email Alison Davidson.
