Gotta question. This application doesn't really specify what position we're applying for - how will we know what we're signing up for? Are we expected to have a job on the space ship over to the site as well? What skill sets are you really looking for?

My apologies. The "Field(s) of Study" was essentially the "position applied for". I'll go back and add that to the resume, since it actually is a far more elegant solution to a problem I was contemplating at work. Instead of having the pilot being an Aeronautics Expert, why not just apply for pilot? Same for all the other roles.

Also, this won't be like Bering. The goal is to bring Scientists, and so many of those people are expected to have no (or little) ability to pilot the space ship. If someone wants to take on the space ship pilot role, then that's perfectly fine. Otherwise, it'll just be an NPC's duty. ^_^

Recent positions:

Lecturer in Metaphysics and Ontology | University of Kent
This position allowed me to aid those seeking an undergraduate degree in Philosophy. It involved the creation of mixed-media presentations, assignment and assessment of group work, and allowed me to liaise with other departments on long term project goals. During this time I received a research grant to investigate the role of impossible worlds in special frames of reference.

Professor of History | Ecole Normale Supérieure
This was a joint research and teaching post in which I was able to continue upon my earlier work into special frames of reference. It also presented the opportunity to pursue research into political and social history in order to inform an evolutionary theory of morality as cultural technology; an area with which the majority of my teaching during this time was concerned.

Selected papers:
“Why Egalitarians are So Rich: Morality as technology.”

“Your Head Asplode 'XD' : Violence and construction of meaning in post-modern mythology.”

“Water in The Desert: Planetary ecology; a resource study.”

“The Evolution of The Boom-Stick: Weaponry as a Reciprocal Expression of Culture.”

Qualifications:
Ph.D History (Oxford)
MA History (University of Paris IV-Sorbonne)
MA Mental Philosophy (University of St Andrews)
BA History (University of Dundee)

Dear Dr. Palaiakos,

I heard about this opportunity from Professor Kouris at the University of Utah. He received your invitation to join the project and passed it along to me, as I expressed interest in joining an anthropological or archeological project of a scope even greater than those offered at the university. In the past few decades, advances in the field of archeology have been led by the vanguard at the Range Creek site, and I have had the great fortune to work under Professor Kouris’s tutelage. Though my main degree is in Linguistics, I have also completed a secondary major in archeology focusing on Range Creek, and I am considering a Masters degree in that field. As I have recently graduated from the University of Utah and am looking for a pre-graduate school position, this comes at the perfect time. Attached please find the information you requested.

Yours sincerely,

Naomi Burns
