Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. of Tempe, AZ (ACS) is seeking to hire a cultural resource Senior Project Manager. The successful candidate will:

Have a Masters degree in Anthropology (Archaeology);

  • qualify as a Project Director on an Arizona state permit;
  • have at least 10 years of experience in archaeology;
  • have at least three years experience managing multiple small projects simultaneously and providing support for larger projects;
  • have an understanding of cultural resource compliance within the framework of NEPA; and
  • have a close familiarity with the performance of such tasks under ADOT contracts.

In short, we are looking for a detail-oriented multi-tasker who is able to get started in the very near future and can contribute to project management right away. The M.A. and qualifications for the Project Director on an Arizona state permit are must-haves; although the other requirements listed are more flexible, keep in mind we are looking for a highly experienced person. 

The duties of this position involve completing cultural resource clearance projects from project initiation through project implementation and close-out, including preparing scopes and budgets for proposals of all types, permit applications, conducting some fieldwork, and preparing technical reports and agency consultation letters.

The duties of this position regularly require sitting at a desk and using hands to manipulate a computer keyboard and mouse as well as paper work products. They will sometimes include in-town or out-of-town fieldwork, which would require standing, walking or climbing into and out of trenches and excavation units, using hands to manipulate items and to lift or carry them, talking, and hearing. They occasionally require crossing uneven terrain, climbing over fences, and stooping, kneeling, or crouching. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions. All employees must be able to follow instructions, ask questions when needed, be able to work independently once parameters have been set, and work cooperatively as part of a team, at both the project and company-wide levels.

The pay level is competitive and commensurate with experience. This is a salaried position, exempt from federal labor laws, eligible for the full ACS benefits package, including vacation, 10 paid holidays, sick leave, a significant portion of the employee’s health and dental insurance paid under the company plan, and participation in a 401(k) program after six months.
