***COVID-19 UPDATE: As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Casa della Regina Carolina Project at Pompeii is canceled for the 2020 season. We hope to hold our next field season in summer 2021, and we look forward to receiving new applications in the 2020-2021 academic year. In the meantime, we send best wishes to all our team members past, present, and future, and we hope you are all staying safe and well!

Applying to join us:

We intend to go into the field again in summer 2021 (precise dates to be determined soon), and we will be accepting applications in the 2020-2021 academic year. We are especially interested in filling positions on (1) our digging team, (2) our finds processing team, (3) our drafting and architecture team, and (4) our archaeobotany team.

Applicants should send the following materials to reginacarolinapompeii@gmail.com: (1) a current CV, (2) a 2-page statement of interest, and (3) for current students or recent postgraduates, a recent academic transcript.

Applications will be considered and accepted on a rolling basis. 


This project does not charge tuition or fees. However, participants should be prepared to pay for their own travel, room, and board expenses. Team members are required to stay in collective housing arranged by the project. At present, we anticipate that housing may be at the Vesuvian Institute in Castellamare di Stabia, where many team members stayed in 2019. The Vesuvian Institute provides full board (breakfast, bag lunch, and dinner). In 2019, room and board expenses were approximately €45/day per person.
