European Archaeologist searching job opportunities in the US Pacific Northwest



bronzze

I am an experienced archeologist with PhD degree in the field of European Prehistory. I am moving from Europe to USA in the beginning of June. My destination is Oregon, so I am looking for new job opportunities in the Pacific Northwest. I am not experienced in the New World Archeology and US cultural management, but I have got great experience in the field archaeology, artifact analysis and processing as well as artifact illustration and drawing.

I believe that my experience and knowledge in the area of European Prehistory gained in the process of working with the European specialists will be of benefit for our joint work.
