Positions require a minimum of a B.A. in anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, or a related field. Archaeologists will be expected to travel (time paid, no mileage) to the project location on the day fieldwork starts. Fieldwork will consist of pedestrian survey with shovel testing and unit excavation. You must be able to walk 4 to 8 miles a day for survey work, excavate shovel tests (35 cm in diameter and up to 100 cm deep), screen dirt from 10-20 cm levels through a ¼" mesh screen, and use hand-held devices to record shovel test depth, soil characteristics and Munsell colors by level, and describe any artifacts found at each level. Typical surveys will involve the documentation of 1 to 4 archaeological sites per project, and the ability to identify and describe precontact and historic period artifacts is expected. All field staff will be expected to carry their own measuring tape (metric required), trowels, backpack, water bottles and lunch/snacks. Comfortable hiking boots and long-sleeved shirts/pants are highly recommended. Veterans are encouraged to apply. Please submit an application, along with a current resume or vita, and three references.
