Archaeological Technicians Needed in Loudoun County, VA and General Mid-Atlantic


Dovetail Cultural Resource Group is looking for two Archaeological Technicians within commuting distance of Gilberts Corner, Loudoun County, Virginia, for a project beginning Monday, April 20, and anticipated to last 2.5 weeks, on a Monday through Friday work schedule. Due to COVID-19 concerns, hotels will not be an option at this time, but individual employee mileage will be reimbursed. This will be a small crew and social distancing and other appropriate precautions will be enforced. We are also accepting applications for Archaeological Technicians from other areas of the Mid-Atlantic, as we anticipate additional essential projects from Virginia to New Jersey over the coming weeks.

Dovetail Cultural Resource Group is a woman-owned cultural resource management firm with offices in Fredericksburg, Virginia and Wilmington, Delaware, performing projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic. The primary responsibility of the Archaeological Technician is to perform archaeological fieldwork, though responsibilities may also extend to performing background research, working in the laboratory, or performing data entry or similar office tasks. Work is on a project-by-project basis.

Minimum Qualifications: Completion of a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology, archaeology, or a closely related field and an accredited archaeological field school are preferred, though a minimum of four years of archaeological field experience within the cultural resource management industry may be substituted for education. Ability to dig, kneel, and crouch for extended periods of time, lift at least 40 pounds, and maintain adequate physical fitness to perform field tasks is critical, as is the ability to work outdoors in hot or cold temperatures, in conditions that may include wind, rain, and/or snow.

Please submit a cover letter, CV, and references to Nicki Sauvageau at Email or call (540-899-9170) with questions.

Dovetail is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
