WHO MAY BE CONSIDERED: Open to all qualified U.S. citizens. You do not have to be a current or former government employee to be considered for this position.
The incumbent serves as a museum technician located at Mesa Verde National Park. The purpose of the position is to perform a full range of complex curatorial support work.
PHYSICAL DEMANDS: The work is partially sedentary with prolonged standing, walking, and bending often required. Heavy items (e.g., boxes up to 50 pounds) must be lifted or moved frequently.
WORK ENVIRONMENT: Most of the work is performed in a museum environment of exhibit and storage areas, workroom/laboratory, and offices. Occasional work with materials which are dusty or stored with protective chemicals may require the use of dust masks, gloves, or other protective devices.
AREA INFORMATION: Mesa Verde is the premier archeological park in the United States and a World Heritage Site. Today, the park protects over 5,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. The park has over 52,000 acres, 8,500 of which have been designated as wilderness. Mesa Verde is located in Southwest Colorado near several towns including Cortez (10 miles from the entrance), Mancos (8 miles) and Durango (36 miles). All services including a hospital, K-12 schools, grocery, recreation centers and more are present. The area is a hotbed for recreational enthusiasts. No matter which direction you travel from the park, recreational opportunities exist including hiking, rafting/kayaking, biking and so much more. The area is diverse ranging from high mountain wilderness to desert, all within a short drive. AT MESA VERDE THERE IS A RISK OF EXPOSURE TO WILDLIFE PATHOGENS TRANSMISSIBLE TO HUMANS, SUCH AS HANTAVIRUS AND PLAGUE. While this risk is remote, some of the work sites may be infested with infected rodents and some work assignments may require the handling of live or dead animals; therefore, the possibility exists. NOTE TO ALLERGY SUFFERERS: Mesa Verde contains a variety of both native and exotic species of grasses, trees, and plants (i.e. sagebrush, pinion, juniper, Canada thistle, etc.) and other known allergens.
HOUSING INFORMATION: Park Housing may be available.
