The International Circumpolar Archaeological Project (ICAP) is a multi-disciplinary research group examines the relationship between climate change and human prehistory in the circumpolar North, with research sites in Finland, Northern Canada, and the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia. In Kamchatka, one of our major goals is to clarify the earliest migrations to the New World. Students will have the opportunity to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other tools to address these issues. Students who have an interest in climate change and human response, heritage, GIS, environmental research, volcanoes, tephra and ash, tectonic plates and tsunamis should apply.
Disciplines: Anthropology, Ecology, Evolution, And Behavior; Geographic Information Science
Student Skill-Set Needed: Ability to work independently; basic computer skills, especially Microsoft Office; web design; data management; digital media relations; proficiency in using library resources for research. Knowledge of GIS is not required but would be useful.
Compensation: Volunteer, Work Study
Available: Fall, Spring
