Location: Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park (Scott, AR)
The station archeologist will develop an active research program in the designated station area, conduct research individually and in collaboration with other ARAS archeologists, publish the results of scholarship in refereed venues, and obtain external funding to support research endeavors. Research station archeologists located at state parks conduct research, participate in site monitoring and preservation activities, and contribute to educational outreach initiatives and programs in collaboration with park staff. One element of our programs at TMASP is maintenance of the Plum Bayou Garden, an educational and research initiative centering on the study of Woodland Period plant cultivation (https://archeology.uark.edu/learn-discover/current-research/plum-bayou-garden/). The station archeologist also provides support to the Arkansas Archeological Society (https://arkarch.org) programs and activities, including the annual training program and working with the local Society Chapter. In addition, the station archeologist provides technical support and advice to federal, state, and local agencies, descendant communities, and members of the public as requested. Routine station operations include maintenance of site and project records and collections for the area, updating existing site file information and recording new sites in the state database, and supervising one station assistant.
