Principal Investigator in the Four Corners Region - $60k+ -Permanent/Full-time (SEAS)

R. Joe Brandon
 

Note from R. Joe:
 
It is not often I get to post a position for someone who had such a profound impact on my knowledge of archaeology. So please indulge me as I give a little backstory here to make an observation before you get to SEAS posting for a PI.
 
I got to know Doug Loebig, the co-founder of SEAS, when he had the misfortune of taking over a crew I was on. The crew comprising Navajo, occasionally Zuni, Alley-Cat the backhoe operator, and some bilagáana like me were on a pipeline running through the Tohatchi flats in the shadow of the Chuska mountains. The Field Director warned Doug that we were the “Next to Worthless Crew”. Maybe we were to him, but Doug didn’t give a frick. And because Doug was the new crew chief on the project, he (and we) were not in the queue for any of what everyone knew were going to be some impressive sites to mitigate. They gave him a nondescript surface scatter, LA 80410, and we resigned ourselves to dig another mediocre site. Doug took a walk across the scatter, went back to the truck to grab the hand auger with a couple of extensions, and dropped in a probe at what looked to be a random spot. Doug watched the soil come out of the auger, he felt it as it sifted through his fingers, hell he might have smelled and tasted it. When he was done he stated “There’s a pit structure here” as if it was clearly obvious (it was not). Then Doug looked around, walked a few meters north and dropped in another probe, and casually said “Here is another one”. A few probes later, Doug had determined there was an associated room block too. We all looked at one another. “Yeah, sure right, dude”. Then Doug broke out the transit and had us lay in the grid.
 
Over the following seasons, Doug guided us in excavating what turned out to be a very nice BMIII/PI site with some extremely unique and interesting architectural features (I could be wrong on the time period off the top of my head but I don’t want to dig the report out of the attic ;-). The period the site was from didn’t matter. What mattered is what Doug did. Which was pretty much everything. It was amazing to watch this totally humble dude just “know” so much about so many things: paleobotany, soils, mapping, survey, material culture, features, prehistoric and modern culture (and how they interleave), and be so willing to share it. What should have been a crappy long winter digging a non-site turned into one of the most memorable and educational experiences I ever have had the opportunity to be a part of. 
 
It is a fine line between extolling the qualities of someone and coming across too strong. So all I can really say is that I would dig with Doug again.
 
In this boom period of CRM, people with the qualifications of what Doug and Cynthia’s company, SEAS, are looking for are in high demand and short supply. But if you are someone who might be a good fit, give their posting here a second glance and reflect for a minute about what it is you first got into archaeology for and what you want to do with your education, and yourself. You might find that immersing yourself in the four-corners with some great people might be the perfect complement to what it was you always meant to do, but might have lost sight of along the way. 
 
Oh. And please don’t turn out to be an a-hole. ;-)  Though that applies for every posting on ShovelBums.
 
For nostalgic value, here is some of the Next to Worthless Crew at LA 80410 Red Willow Hamlet. Though I am not in the pic,  I was taking the crew shot with a 4”x5” large format camera, no self-timer :-) Doug is kneeling on the left.


RIP to our brothers, great friends, and archaeologists, David Silcock (standing solo, he was a Brit, go figure ;-) and Stan Brown (black cowboy hat).
 
Onto the posting. 
 
Best,
 
R. Joe
