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 with local experience preferred. Applicants who meet the requirements above and also have significant experience in bioarchaeology will be shown preference.

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(primarily within the State of Arizona), which could require driving ACS vehicles, 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 follow established procedures, ask questions when needed, and be able to work independently as well as cooperatively as part of a team, at both the project and company-wide levels.

This position is salaried with benefits; eligible for the full ACS benefits package, including vacation, 10 paid holidays, sick leave, a significant portion of the employee¹s health and dental insurance paid under the company plan, and participation in a 401(k) program after six months; and the pay level is competitive, commensurate with experience.
