Archaeology Job search Listserv

R. Joe Brandon <rjoe@...>
 

---Apologies for cross postings on archaeology lists---
---commentst to: shovelbums@...

If you are an administator associated with archaeologists (students or professional)
looking for field work, please post or e-mail this message to interested
parties (dept. anthropology student lists, personal archaeology friends
network, etc.)

This list is for anyone who understands what it means to be a modern
field archaeologist, and for those looking to find out. We are known as
"shovelbums" by friends and family. We move from state to state
(literally and figuratively) following the cash cow pipelines or saving
up to go and work on those great digs, you know the ones with great
archaeology, lots of satisfaction, but little pay.

I learned when starting in the 80's that finding jobs has traditionally
been via your personal networks of friends in the field using
telephone, letters, and as of late web resources. The Shovelbums list
serves to streamline and compliment that whole process, taking advantage of
the nearly ubiquitous access we all have to e-mail. Now when someone knows
of a project, anywhere, with the word out for hires, this is the place to
announce or find it, and it comes right to your mailbox.

To subscribe to shovelbums you can either point your browser to:

April Job postings

R. Joe Brandon <rjoe@...>
 

Folks,

At the end of the month I will try to sum up the job posting/calls for
vitae that we have had on here. Since this list has only been live for 6
days (and already has 130+ subcribers) I consider that a sign that
shovelbums will work as a good medium for us all. As I am promoting this
list still I would like to ask any of you, who have not done so already, to
please forward the invitaion for "shovelbums" (as well as
shovelbums_gossip) at the bottom of this message to your own personal network
of shovelbum friends. If you are in a university setting if you could pass
this on to the dept. coordinator and have them forward it to your
anthropology student body (if your department does such things), or print is
and post it on a bulletin board near the anthropology office/grad
students offic I would appreciate it.

Other news: A web site is planned to compliment the list. This is
going slow as I finish up my masters, but it will come in time.

---Apologies for cross postings on archaeology lists---

---comments to R. Joe: shovelbums@...

If you are an administator associated with archaeologists (students or
professional) looking for field work, please post or e-mail this message to
interested parties (department anthropology student lists, personal
archaeology friends network, bulletin board in the main office, etc.)

This list is for anyone who understands what it means to be a modern
contract (CRM) field archaeologist, and for those looking to find out. We
are referred to, sometimes disparagingly, by family and friends as
"shovelbums". Regardless of the name this is a proud, but challenging,
profession, and one deserving a more cohesive network to find the jobs we so
dearly love. As we move from state to state (literally and figuratively)
following the cash cow pipelines or saving up to go and work on those great
digs, the ones with great archaeology, lots of satisfaction, but little pay,
we sometimes loose contact with our networks on where the next job is.

I learned when starting in "the field" in the 80's that finding jobs
dependeds almost exclusivley on your network of friends. You might
hear from Pat who has heard from Cathy that so-n-so is gearing up for a
big job. At that time using telephone, letters, and lately web resources
were the mediums of choice. The Shovelbums listserv will streamline and
compliment this whole process, taking advantage of the nearly ubiquitous
access we all have to e-mail. Now when someone knows of a project, anywhere,
with the word out for hires, this is the place to announce or find it, and it
comes right to your mailbox. This list will not be region specific. In
respect to the grand nature of our profession it is open to postings for
paying field jobs, anywhere. If you dig it, they will come.

200+ shovelbums

R. Joe Brandon <rjoe@...>
 

Today we reached the 200th subscriber on Shovelbums. Not bad for only
being online for 12 days. If you are in school or at an office please
pass on the word/post/forward the signup e-mail for the list.

Job stuff:

I have heard some rumors about A: Lots of work in Alaska this summer,
and B: a couple of big pipelines, one is running from ND to Illinois and
has crews in the field now (IMAC in Minnesota is running this job I believe,
though I know they had TRC-Mariah helping them out on an Illinois (?!) leg
for a bit), and another company (?) running a pipeline in NW New Mexico?

Are there any big cemetary Jobs continuing this year? There were a
number of big ones last summer/fall in Houston and several out East, are
these ongoing?

I know a number of you on this list are on these jobs/in the areas, and
so if they are hiring pass the word onto the list.

Hello to all,

This might possibly be off the track for shovelbums, but does anybody know
of a good fieldschool for Palaeolithic France, or eastern Europe. I really
want to find something with a classroom component as well as practical
experience. I have a BA in anthro, teach secondary hist, anthro, & bio, and
have worked at a site in Croatia. Plan to return there this September
barring continued/escalating mayhem in the area, but I would also like to
work earlier, during the summer months. Any leads would be helpful and
thanks in advance : )
