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.
This recruitment will be used to fill temporary appointments for the 2017 summer season. These appointments are not to exceed 1039 hours in a twelve month period, although positions may be terminated sooner or extended depending on management needs.
This position participates in both prehistoric and historic archeological field surveys in Rocky Mountain National Park. 
Archeological Technicians in this position carry equipment and packs long distances, over rugged terrain, to locate and investigate archeological sites in remote areas of the park. They plan and implement small archeological projects and provide technical assistance in archeological condition assessments. They also serve as a Crew Chief, providing leadership, assigning tasks and monitoring progress to field crews involved in these activities.
Archeological Technicians prepare documents on archeological site investigations and conduct surveys using GPS mapping techniques. They retrieve and compile data to assist in developing, evaluating and preparing draft documents used in report preparation. To be successful in this position they should have basic technical knowledge in archeological site types common to the Rocky Mountain Region and be able to perform work in compliance with applicable Federal Archeological Laws and Guidelines.
PHYSICAL DEMANDS: The work is partially sedentary with prolonged standing, walking, and bending often required. Heavy items (e.g., packs up to 50 pounds) must be lifted and carried on a routine basis. WORK ENVIRONMENT: The work is performed both in an office setting and in the field. Survey and documentation work is typically performed in isolated areas; the incumbent must therefore be familiar with outdoor safety and survival skills and must be able to operate a vehicle on rough roads. Sustained periods of camping under primitive conditions are routine.
AREA INFORMATION: Established on January 29, 1915, Rocky Mountain National Park is a living showcase of the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. The park embraces 415 square miles of pristine, uninhabited mountains in north-central Colorado and, as such, is the one of the most spectacular, yet easily accessible high mountain areas in North America. With elevations ranging from 7,800 feet at park headquarters to 14,259 feet at the summit of Longs Peak, the park has glacier-sculptured valleys, rugged gorges, alpine lakes, and vast areas of alpine tundra. Trail Ridge Road, the highest paved continuous road in the United States, stays above tree line for 11 miles and reaches 12,183 feet in elevation. Elk, deer, bighorn sheep, moose, coyotes, and smaller animals are found throughout the park, as well as threatened and endangered species, such as the Greenback Cutthroat Trout and Boreal Toad. Visitation exceeds 4 million visitors annually. The nearest community on the east side of the park is Estes Park, CO. Limited housing may be available.
