[ShovelBums.Org] Field Technicians Needed


Title: Archaeological Field Technician


Date: July 26, 2011


Location: Various locations within Colorado


RMC Consultants, Inc., a multidisciplinary consulting firm, has several short-term, temporary, hourly positions available for archaeological field technicians for the remaining summer field season.  Qualified candidates should possess, at minimum, 18 credit hours towards a bachelor's degree in Archaeology, Anthropology, or a related field and have completed an accredited archaeological field school.  Candidates must also have a minimum of 2 months of field experience (e.g., survey, testing, and data recovery) and be physically fit and able to perform physically demanding tasks in adverse environmental conditions (e.g., mountainous terrain, high elevation).  Candidates should also have good organizational skills, a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and willingness to learn and execute new tasks.  Prior experience working within Colorado and surrounding states will be viewed favorably.  Applicants living within the state of Colorado are preferred, although it is not required. 


Pay rates range from $12.00 to $14.00 per hour, depending on individual qualifications and experience.  Selected candidates can expect 40 hours of work per week.  For field projects requiring an overnight stay, per diem will be offered at a rate consistent with FY 2011 rates for Colorado.  Upcoming projects will require camping in remote areas.  RMC Consultants, Inc. will not provide camping gear; therefore personal camping gear will be a necessity.




Reporting to the Project Director and Crew Chief, Archaeological Field Technicians are responsible for conducting reconnaissance survey, artifact identification and recordation, test unit and feature excavation, and documentation.  Archaeological field technicians are required to perform the following tasks in the field:


·         Conduct archaeological survey, testing, and data recovery

·         Complete sketch maps of sites

·         Complete field forms accurately and concisely

·         Photograph resources

·         Use various GPS units

·         Identify historic and prehistoric artifacts correctly

·         Must be able to lift up to 40lbs


Applications can be submitted via e-mail to the address listed below and should include a resume of relevant experience and references (with contact information).  Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.

The most important aspect of this list is that it is for one purpose only.: announcing jobs/non paying volunteer postings in the international CRM field at all levels; Field Tech, Professors, SHPO�s, etc...  Caveat Emptor though my friends.  Not all jobs pay the same, nor is their treatment of employees the same - as the companies are checking your references, you should also check them out - make sure they pay fair wages, treat their employees professionally, and do quality work.  If you have at least a BA you deserve fair remuneration, so ask for it, and in turn you provide your employer with excellent service.   You ARE a trained professional, NOT a "shovelbum"  - the name is in jest - act professional, expect to be treated like one.
