    Job Description

    The School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University seeks to hire a qualified NAGPRA Collections Specialist to be responsible for locating, documenting, and assessing funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony in compliance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA).

Archaeological collections at Arizona State University’s Center for Archaeology and Society Repository include materials collected by faculty of the former Department of Anthropology, materials donated to the Repository by private individuals, and materials collected during Federally sponsored cultural resource management projects. Repository collections include over 300,000 catalog numbers of Native American archaeological and ethnological objects, primarily from Arizona. The collections are subject to the NAGPRA and may include associated funerary objects, sacred objects, or objects of cultural patrimony.

    To prepare these collections in accordance with our repatriation process, relevant collections must be located, documented, assigned to recognized artifact types for cultural affiliation, cataloged according to contemporary archaeological and museum collection management standards and best practices, assessed for removal provenience and context, and the collection information entered into a database. As a part of the NAGPRA team, the NAGPRA Collections Specialist will contribute to the consultation process with potential descendant communities.
