State Lands Archaeologist – Olympia
 

Want to join something GREAT and make a difference?
Can you interpret the past to help guide future land management decisions?  Does finding solutions to challenging projects inspire you?  Will you be part of driving a positive organizational culture in a large and diverse state agency?  If yes, apply to join our multidisciplinary stewardship team as the newest State Lands Archaeologist!

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) seeks to ensure that state trust lands are managed in collaboration with tribal nations, and with respect for tribal sovereignty and reserved rights.  To fulfill the responsibilities as the State Lands Archeologist, you will work closely with tribes, DNR regions, divisions and programs, and the executive staff to accomplish this collaborative goal.

In this position, you will provide professional cultural resources analysis and consultative services to resource managers and field staff throughout Washington State.  You will conduct cultural resource desk and field reconnaissance; develop resource management and monitoring plans; train staff at all levels; and oversee survey, sample collection, field evaluation and reporting work.  You will coordinate with tribal representatives and state and federal agencies.  You will produce and deliver teaching modules and collaborate on agency-level guidance and planning documents.  You will assist with contract preparation and administration for cultural resource consultation services conducted by external entities.

You’ll bring your substantial field experience and excellent project management skills to bear as one of two archaeologists responsible for cultural resource management on 5.6 million acres of state-managed uplands and aquatic lands.  Ingenuity and agility are ideal skills as you manage shifting priorities with multiple competing deadlines to meeting agency commitments.  You will effectively and positively communicate and network with internal staff from all regions, divisions, and executive management, as well as state, federal, and tribal agencies.

One of the best things about this job is the people you work with.  The scientists of the DNR Forest Resources Division come from a variety of disciplines: ecology, forestry, wildlife biology, geography and spatial data management, geology, and more.  We are dedicated to practicing sustainable land stewardship that provides conservation, recreation, and revenue opportunities throughout the state.

Given the diversity of Washington’s landscapes and the breadth of the management solutions you will be responsible for coordinating, we are looking for an archaeological professional who is an adaptable generalist with considerable pedestrian survey experience.  We are particularly interested in meeting applicants with a background in coastal, nearshore, or aquatic archaeology.  A successful applicant has at least five years of field and project management experience and must meet the state of Washington’s standards for qualified professional archaeologists (WAC 25-48-020 (4)) and one or both parts of the Secretary of the Interior’s professional qualification standards for archaeology (36 CFR Part 61).  Preference will be given to applicants who meet the prehistoric archaeology standard or additional professional qualification standards in the related disciplines.

In your application materials, please demonstrate your understanding of and experience with GIS, cartography, technical writing, teaching, project management, and program development.
This is a full-time, permanent, overtime-exempt position.  It will require approximately 10-15 days away from the duty station per month, in addition to some overnight travel for fieldwork, meetings, conferences and other events throughout the region. 

 

Required Qualifications: 
The right candidate has:

  • Master’s degree in archaeology, anthropology, cultural resources management or closely related field.
  • Five years of professional experience in archaeological, historical, or cultural resource research, administration or management with at least one year of unsupervised field and analytic experience.

Desirable Qualifications:

  • Demonstrated understanding and experience with management of non-archaeological cultural resources (e.g., traditional cultural properties, traditional materials and first foods, etc.).
  • Expertise in preparing and presenting student-centered learning modules in field and office settings.
  • Proficiency in GIS and GPS and ability to create visualizations and manage data in ArcGIS.
