The Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) seeks a lead bioarchaeologist to direct a large-scale multi-year research project focused on the excavation, curation and study of a cemetery associated with the original Mississippi State Mental Asylum. This cemetery is located on the UMMC campus and contains over 4,000 sets of unmarked human remains. The Asylum Hill Project has been funded to excavate, study, and curate these patients. The director will be engaged in all aspects of the project--a project that reflects an exceptional moment in American bioarchaeology. The project will also permanently memorialize the patients during a later phase.
