EnviroSystems is hiring!



EnviroSystems Management, Inc. (EnviroSystems) is a woman-owned small business specializing in environmental and cultural resources consulting services. EnviroSystems is located in Flagstaff, Arizona, but provides consulting services and regulatory compliance throughout the Southwest, Great Basin, and Intermountain West. EnviroSystems is seeking to fill permanent full-time positions in our cultural resources department and

seeking candidates for the 2024 Field Season.


CURRENT OPENINGS

PROJECT DIRECTOR – Fulltime/Permanent – $52,000 to $65,000/year commensurate with experience. The successful candidate either will be currently permitted or meet the qualifications to be immediately permitted as a Project Director/Field Director with a variety of public land managing agencies at the Federal and state level with particular emphasis the on U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, and in Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and New Mexico. Experience in California, Idaho, west Texas, and western Colorado is also beneficial but not necessary. The position requires the ability to supervise cultural resources surveys and other archaeological projects in remote locations and over steep terrain,

and often requires camping for a week or more at a time. Therefore, a clean driving record and the ability to work out-of-town for multiple sequential field sessions are also essential. The successful candidate will provide demonstrable expertise supervising all aspects of cultural resources survey, site recording and site significance evaluations, as well as technical report writing. Experience with archaeological, monitoring, testing and data recovery is a plus but is not required. Candidates should be well-versed with the completion of survey forms (from a variety of states and federal agencies, but particularly those noted

above), operating GPS units with a data recorder, and conducting quality control/quality assurance reviews of data. The ideal candidate will possess knowledge of Federal cultural resources regulations (particularly National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 compliance), the ability to coordinate and communicate with agencies and clients and manage budgets and schedules. The candidates also should be motivated, resourceful, dedicated, and organized. Applicants must have at least a master’s degree in Anthropology or Archaeology and a minimum of five years of work experience as a supervisory archaeologist (e.g., Crew Chief, Project/Field Director). This position also has potential for advancement to Principal Investigator/Project Manager, if or when the candidate meets the necessary requirements.


The ideal candidate is someone who desires a long-term career in archaeology/CRM (preferably with EnviroSystems) with advancements in responsibilities and commensurate compensation based on demonstrable abilities and competence.

2024 FIELD SEASON VACANCIES

(March through November)

CREW CHIEF – Fulltime/Temporary (with Potential for Fulltime/Permanent) – $24 to $26/hour or $1 to $3 over SCA (i.e., McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act) rates for Federal work.

A master’s degree is also preferable for a Crew Chief-level position, but a minimum of a bachelor’s degree with appropriate experience may be acceptable. The successful candidate either will be currently permitted or meet the qualifications to be immediately permitted as a Crew Chief with a variety of public land managing agencies at the Federal and state level. Crew Chiefs must have the ability to supervise crews under the direction and guidance of the Project Director. Crew Chiefs must be able to work in remote locations through rugged terrain involving camping for a week or more at a time. Again, a clean driving record and the ability to work out-of-town for multiple sequential field sessions are also essential. The successful candidate will provide demonstrable expertise supervising a crew and ensuring that all paperwork and documentation are clear, consistent, and organized before submitting to the Project Director. The Crew Chief has the potential to be offered a Full Time/Permanent position and potential to advance to the level of Project Director.


FIELD TECHNICIAN – Fulltime/Temporary - $22 to $24/hour on non-Federal Projects. SCA rates for Federal work range from $21.90 to $25.50/hour depending on the state and county.

Prospective Field Technician candidates for the 2024 field season can expect Fulltime/Temporary work from March through November, but it is possible the field season may begin early and continue through the end of 2024. Prospective candidates should have a bachelor’s degree in Archaeology/Anthropology/History or similar field. At least one year of experience is preferred, though not required. The candidate will be expected to be able to survey in remote locations, over rough terrain, for camping sessions that are typically 8 days long, and occasionally longer. The 8 days sessions include the travel days on either

end, and EnviroSystems provides transportation to the project location. Sessions that exceed 8 days are rare, but EnviroSystems does pay overtime in those circumstances. Some projects may require archaeological monitoring, testing, or data recovery, but the majority of work is expected to be large block surveys in remote areas. All remote or out of town work pays per diem. Per diem varies by project but exceeds base GSA rates.
