The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency Laboratory (DPAA LAB) in Hawaii is currently seeking candidates for our forensic anthropology postdoctoral fellowship program. This program for DPAA is administered by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) via the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) internship program.
The ORISE Anthropologist fellows at DPAA conduct a variety of osteological, bioarchaeological, and/or forensic anthropological research and will participate in one of several research projects: Large commingled assemblage from North Korea, Disinterment of Unknown Remains, Chest Radiograph Comparison, Solvability/Resolvability, or Histology. Fellows will also conduct skeletal analysis and material evidence analysis in the Laboratory at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Future projects will be operated at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, NE.
Ideal candidates would possess osteological research experience, archaeological experience, and a demonstrated ability to disseminate research findings at professional conferences and/or through publications.
The intent of the ORISE program is to support STEM researchers as they initiate and conduct collaborative research and accrue experience in an applied laboratory setting. This should complement the Fellows academic training and provide the opportunity for hands-on experience and an opportunity to apply and practice the theories and methods learned in the classroom or private sectors. The DPAA ORISE program looks to expand a Fellows
