Volunteering AAIA Digital Horizons Project: Project run by University of Sydney in conjunction with Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens, Archaeological Society of Athens and GML Heritage. The Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens (AAIA) Digital Horizons Project (DHP) run by the University of Sydney is offering volunteer positions for ANU students. Positions for Semester 1: - Record Documentation (3 roles available) Mondays 10am-12pm or Fridays 3-5pm - Digital Illustration (1 role available) Mondays 10am-12pm
The DHP provides industry-oriented training to student volunteers, with several roles offered that consists of working with archaeological and archival materials. Volunteers have analysed and processed close to 40,000 records from the AAIA Zagora Excavations from the 1960s-1980s. The DHP is now moving towards processing data from Torone, another site that was excavated by the AAIA in the 1980s-1990s.
ANU students have been involved with the DHP over the past year, including members of ABACUS's executive team. We highly recommend this volunteer opportunity to students wishing to build on their professional skills in digital archaeology and to experience working with student volunteers from universities across Australia. There are also workshops and social events run throughout the semester for volunteers working in-person and online.

Honours Research Assistance (2022): Calling all nature lovers, We are looking for volunteers to help us track greater gliders back to their hollows at night, and also to help deploy nest boxes to support greater glider populations with post-fire recovery. You are welcome to come out with us for one day or one night or more if your schedule allows. The fieldwork is in Tallaganda (about 1 hour from Canberra). Transport provided.
All activities require walking around out bush on uneven ground and in the case of tracking greater gliders, you’ll be walking in the dark with a torch. You don’t have to be Olympic fit, but you’ll need to be comfortable with this kind of activity and in good health. We have a volunteer form that volunteers need to sign and we will run through OHS on the day. We have an epirb for emergencies and satellite phones. We haven’t lost anyone yet and we look forward to keeping it that way! Let me know if anyone is interested in joining us for a day or night of fieldwork (no consecutive days and nights for safety though—we all need sleep!). Please send an email to (email@example.com) with the date(s) available and activity (nest box or glider tracking), and any dietary restrictions.
