Archaeological Technicians in the Mid-Atlantic


Mid-Atlantic Region

Dovetail Cultural Resource Group is accepting applications for Archaeological Technicians for projects throughout the mid-Atlantic. In particular, we need at least two people for projects in Virginia beginning on Monday, October 26. Hotel and per diem are available during the workweek for those not local to the project areas. We anticipate hiring additional Archaeological Technicians on other projects in Virginia, Delaware, and Maryland in the coming weeks and months, so applications are encouraged even if you are not available by October 26.

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 (to include the date you are available to start and any travel restrictions), CV, and references to Nicki Sauvageau at Email or call (540-899-9170) with questions.
