To whom it may concern,

 

My name is Sean Stcherbinine and I am applying for the GS-0193-9 Archaeologist position at the Forest Supervisor’s Office in Everett, WA.  Achieving this position would assist in reaching my long term goal of being a Registered Professional Archaeologist managing cultural resources for a federal land-owning agency.

  

I believe I have the education, professional experience, and skills to meet the demands of this position and if hired would be an asset to the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest.  At Western Washington University and Central Washington University I studied Northwest Coast and Plateau precontact archaeology, respectively, as well as common historical archaeology of Washington State.  My graduate level research focused on the geoarchaeology of an upland, precontact site in Mount Rainier National Park.  I feel this educational background is well-suited for managing cultural resources in the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest.     

 

Over the last eight years employed as an archaeological technician, crew chief, and project leader, I have gained valuable experience implementing the Section 106 process in five states and seven culture areas.  This diverse background has allowed me to draw on a variety of techniques for solving similar problems in the cultural resources field.  Most of my experience is in Section 106 field surveys, determinations of eligibility, and data recovery excavations on county, state and federal land in Washington State.   I also have experience in laboratory methods and report writing.  This comprehensive skill set has allowed me to carry out nearly all aspects of cultural resource projects, which include: consulting with clients and relevant stake holders, conducting background research, hiring a crew, leading surveys and excavations, data collection, artifact analysis, and writing the final report that includes maps created in ArcMap.  The ability to carry out many aspects of cultural resource projects has made be a valuable asset to companies and I wish to bring this ability to the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest.

 

I am passionate about preserving public lands and cultural resources for posterity, and enjoy teaching people about how we manage knowledge of the past.  This passion, combined with my great interpersonal skills and attention to detail, has allowed me to excel at public outreach, leading field crews, and teaching individuals new to archaeology about basic field methods and techniques. 

 

Please find my resume and requested information attached.  If you require anything further please feel free to contact me at 206-304-0338 or sean.stcherb@gmail.com.  I thank you in advance for your time and consideration.  I look forward to hearing from you. 

 

 

Respectively,

Sean Stcherbinine
