    Osteologist Lab Supervisor (DCA #24367)

    Santa Fe, NM

    https://careers.share.state.nm.us/psp/hprdcg/EMPLOYEE/HRMS/c/HRS_HRAM_FL.HRS_CG_SEARCH_FL.GBL?Page=HRS_APP_JBPST_FL&Action=U&FOCUS=Applicant&SiteId=1&JobOpeningId=135713&PostingSeq=1

    Salary

    $25.56 - $40.90 Hourly / $53,165 - $85,064 Annually

    This position is a Pay Band 70

    Description

    This position is for a skilled archaeologist and physical anthropologist who will be required to participate in field excavations of burials, train field excavators in burial excavation techniques, analyze human skeletal remains in both field and laboratory settings and prepare required descriptive and interpretive reports. This position may also analyze animal bone assemblages from archaeological sites and prepare reports on those analyses.

    Archaeological Field Investigations: The employee will be required to conduct unmarked human burial excavations and to train field excavators in human burial excavation procedures. Field procedures will adapted as necessary to the condition of the burial, the complexity of the burial, any associated funerary objects, and the stratigraphic context of the burial. The employee must be familiar with state or federal regulatory requirements and any agreements with Native American tribes that govern burial treatments. The employee must be qualified to conduct in-field burial analyses under conditions where regulations or agreements require immediate reinterment of burials.

    Analysis: Most analyses will be conducted in the laboratory, but some human bone analyses may have to be conducted under field conditions, depending on state or federal laws and agreements with Native American Tribes. Human burials and isolated bones will be analyzed in accordance with the minimum requirements of state statute and regulation and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Animal bone analyses begin with rough sorts into potentially identifiable and unidentifiable fragments. Potentially identifiable fragments are organized by probable species and body part, and the individual bones are then compared with type specimens in the laboratory to establish identifications. In addition to species and body part identifications, animal bones are observed for evidence of age and any cultural modifications (butchering, burning, shaping into tools, etc.).

    Reporting: All human bone analyses carry a responsibility to state, federal, or tribal laws and regulations. Animal bone reporting begins with the creation of descriptive inventories and tabular summaries of bones found in the archaeological collections. These summaries become the basis for environmental reconstructions and interpretations of past human behavior. The interpretations are guided the research goals of the overall project, and by a vast literature on the interpretation of archaeological faunal collections.

    Ideal Candidate

    The ideal candidate has a Master's degree in Archaeology or Anthropology and four (4) years of Archaeology or Anthropology survey, excavation, analysis, and/or reporting experience. Must be listed or able to be listed on the unmarked human burial excavation permit.

    Minimum Qualification

    Bachelor's degree in Archaeology or Anthropology and two (2) years of experience in archaeology survey, excavation, analysis and/or reporting.
