The overall responsibility of the selected individual will be to operate as a project manager and participate in all aspects of fieldwork and laboratory analyses, as warranted; develop and maintain relationships with clients, regulatory agencies, and Native Americans; manage projects, develop budgets, and maintain schedules; direct personnel; and prepare proposals in response to Requests for Proposals and Qualifications.

Projects can be multidisciplinary, requiring knowledge of cultural resources management, prehistoric and historical archaeology, history, historical architecture, or traditional cultural properties. Projects will involve cultural resource inventory, evaluation, and mitigation, which may include directing and conducting archival, background, and technical research; field surveys and excavations; laboratory work; data analysis; and the report preparation.

Position Requirements

The successful candidate will have an M.A. or M.S. in Cultural Resources Management, Archaeology, Anthropology, or a closely related field (or will be awarded the degree within 6 months of hire), with a minimum of 5 to 7 years of experience in California Cultural Resources Management. The individual must be able to meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualifications Standards for archeology and be certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists (or have an application under review).

Desirable candidate qualifications include:

  • Previous project management experience and authorship of CEQA-level environmental documents
  • A strong understanding of federal and State cultural resources regulations and legislation, particularly CEQA, Section 106, and NEPA
  • Written and verbal communication skills, including public speaking and interactions with stakeholders
  • Excellent organizational skills, a team-oriented and positive attitude, and solid work ethic
Compensation The salary range for this position is $65,000 to $98,000 per year. The compensation offer will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications and experience.
