About the opportunity:
SWCA has an opportunity for an Assistant Staff Archaeologist working in the Northern Plains from the Bismarck, North Dakota Office (remote work is possible).
You will communicate with Field Directors, Project Managers, and GIS staff through regular, scheduled field status reports.
The Assistant Staff Archaeologist will participate in technical research and writing and data QA/QC for reporting efforts, and assist with mapping responsibilities in the field, including collection of GPS data using tablets and/or Trimble Units.

Our Bismarck, North Dakota office specializes in cultural and natural resources services within a relaxed work environment.
We take pride in rapidly delivering on client needs, which can lead to extended field efforts with abundant overtime compensation.
With our network of offices across the US, we have the ability to move our field staff rapidly to meet these needs, and the selected technician may have the opportunity to assist on a wide variety of projects across the country as a result.

This position is a regular, hourly position offering a competitive pay and benefits package.
Project work will occur primarily in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota, although opportunities to work in other states may also arise.
You should be able to work flexible hours with the potential for long-term field mobilizations for specific projects.
Per diem and lodging are provided for all project work requiring overnight stays away from the home office.

Application deadline: Our team will begin reviewing applications immediately, and interviews will be scheduled with qualified candidates on a rolling basis.
The application process will remain open until we have received a robust pool of qualified candidates.
Once we have identified suitable individuals, we may close the application process without prior notice.
We appreciate the time and effort invested by all applicants and will carefully consider each submission.
What you will accomplish:
  • Conduct archaeological fieldwork under the direction of a Project Manager or Field Director on projects including monitoring, survey, testing, and data recovery.
  • Conduct archaeological survey, excavation, and associated field recording, including completion of field forms, digital photography, and in-field mapping.
  • Thrive in our team-oriented approach to project execution.
  • Maintain a strong commitment to customer service and to producing quality work.
  • Identify historic and prehistoric artifacts accurately.
  • Gain experience with our rapidly developing tablet-based GPS and forms interfaces, along with web-based portals displaying project information.
  • Conduct archaeological lab work, including artifact washing, analysis, and curation preparation.
  • Use SWCA-provided personal protective equipment and comply with all SWCA and client safety policies.
  • Supervise a small crew while conducting archaeological fieldwork.
    This includes:
    • independently assigning and directing the activities of others on behalf of SWCA, often in remote areas without immediate guidance from senior managers, to ensure quality and on-time delivery;
    • ensuring that employees understand their responsibilities and delegated tasks and being held accountable if crew members under your supervision are not performing their activities correctly, productively, and safely;
    • serving as a conduit of communication between employees and senior managers, including communicating issues to relevant senior managers;
    • receiving and resolving complaints from employees in the field; and
    • monitoring team productivity and providing timely performance feedback, including deciding when disciplinary action is necessary and delivering discipline.

Experience and qualifications for success:
  • Minimum of a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, Archaeology or a closely related field required.
  • Up to one (1) year of experience with a wide range of field methodologies, including archaeological survey, testing, excavation, and monitoring.
