Minimum qualifications and Experience:

The ideal candidates will have an M.A. or M.S. degree in anthropology with a focus on precontact or historical archaeology, be able to be Register of Professional Archaeologist certified, and possess a minimum of five years of field experience, with at least two years of experience as a field supervisor on survey, testing, and data recovery projects.

Demonstrated prior experience serving as lead author for Section 106 compliance reports will be viewed favorably.

Job Description:

The PD position is responsible for planning and implementing survey, testing, monitoring, and data recovery plans. The PD coordinates—through the appropriate channels—all tasks associated with fieldwork, analysis, and reporting. The responsibilities of the PD typically involve traveling and work in both the field and office. The PD is responsible for report writing and having a solid understanding of the basics of CRM.

For small- and medium-sized projects, the PD may assume additional tasks typically assigned to a Principal Investigator (PI), although you will work under the mentorships of the PI for that project.  For larger projects, the PD will work in tandem with experience project directors and/or the PI and to ensure that all the tasks associated with project implementation are accomplished.  We will provide the training you will need to meet your deadlines, remain on budget, and meet SRI’s standard of care.

The PD typically will work on multiple projects simultaneously and the PD is expected to multitask. A PD often is responsible for training crew technicians and crew leads in archaeological field methods. The ability to work harmoniously and productively with other SRI staff and clients is essential. Also, the PD is expected to be a professionally active member of the discipline. Finally, the PD is expected at all times to behave with SRI staff members and clients in a manner that is appropriate.
