Cultural Resources Manager - Point Richmond, CA

Jennifer Palmer

LSA, a California environmental and planning firm, is seeking a qualified individual for a Cultural Resources Manager position with LSA’s Northern California Cultural Resources Group (CRG) in the Point Richmond office in the San Francisco Bay Area. The overall responsibility of the selected individual will be to operate as a project manager and participate in all aspects of fieldwork and laboratory analyses, as warranted; develop and maintain relationships with clients, regulatory agencies, and Native Americans; manage projects, develop budgets, and maintain schedules; direct personnel; and prepare proposals in response to Requests for Proposals and Qualifications. 

Projects can be multidisciplinary, requiring knowledge of cultural resources management, prehistoric and historical archaeology, history, historical architecture, or traditional cultural properties. Projects will involve cultural resource inventory, evaluation, and mitigation, which may include directing and conducting archival, background, and technical research; field surveys and excavations; laboratory work; data analysis; and the report preparation. Fieldwork may occur throughout California, so the successful candidate will need to be flexible with regard to short- and medium-duration absences for project tasks. The volume of work available on a weekly basis will depend on overall CRG workload, project-specific needs, and the individual’s knowledge, skills, and abilities. 

The successful candidate will have an M.A. or M.S. in Cultural Resources Management, Archaeology, or Anthropology, or a closely related field (or will be awarded the degree within 6 months of hire), with a minimum of 5 to 7 years of experience in California Cultural Resources Management. The individual must be able to meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualifications Standards for archeology and be certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists (or have an application under review).

Desirable candidate qualifications include:

Previous project management experience and authorship of CEQA-level environmental documents; 
A strong understanding of federal and State cultural resources regulations and legislation, particularly CEQA, Section 106, and NEPA; 
Written and verbal communication skills, including public speaking and interactions with stakeholders; and 
Excellent organizational skills, a team-oriented and positive attitude, and solid work ethic.

LSA’s greatest asset is its employee ownership. LSA offers excellent compensation and benefits, including competitive pay; medical, dental, vision, long-term disability, long-term care, group life and AD&D insurance plans; vacation, sick, and holiday pay; an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP); and a Profit Sharing and Savings Plan (with 401k and company match). LSA is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and participates in E-Verify.
