Student assistantships

DAI offers students the opportunity to gain professional and academic experience as student assistants. The assistantships are designed to accommodate the students' course load and serve as a first step into an academic/scientific career. Student assistants at DAI may work in the service departments of our respective departments/commissions or at our excavation sites.
