Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI), a cultural resources management (CRM) consulting firm, provides comprehensive CRM services to private and government clients at the federal, state, and local levels throughout the western United States from offices in Washington, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. SRI has a position for one (1) Project Director based primarily at our Lacey, WA office to support projects in the Pacific Northwest.  It is expected the successful candidate may also support projects at other SRI offices. While this is initially an hourly position, opportunity for full time employment is possible for the right candidate.

Minimum Qualifications and Experience:

The ideal candidates should possess, at minimum, a Master's degree in Archaeology, Anthropology, or a related field; have completed an accredited archaeological field school; and be eligible for the Register of Professional Archaeologists. Candidates must have a minimum of 3 years of field experience working on and/or supervising monitoring, survey, testing, and data recovery projects and be physically fit and able to perform physically demanding tasks in adverse environmental conditions. Candidates should also have good organizational skills, a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and willingness to learn and execute new tasks. Candidates with additional experience (e.g. GIS data collection or specialization in material culture analyses) will be viewed favorably.

Compensation Package:

SRI offers a compensation package that includes competitive pay; professional development; a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, life, and disability insurance, and a retirement plan; and paid vacation/sick and holiday leave. The hourly rate or salary for this position will be commensurate with the applicant's credentials and experience and industry standards. Food allowance, travel time, and lodging provisions will be contract/project specific.

Job Description:

The Project Director (PD) is responsible for preparing and implementing archaeological field survey, testing, monitoring, and data recovery plans and for coordinating through the appropriate channels all field and analytical tasks associated with fieldwork, analysis, and report preparation, including report writing. Travel and fieldwork are expected in this position. For small- and medium-sized projects, the PD may also take on many of the tasks typically assigned to a Principal Investigator (PI), though he or she is still ultimately responsible to the PI for the given project. For larger projects, the PD works with the PI to ensure that all tasks associated with  project implementation are accomplished professionally and in a timely and fiscally responsible manner. For all projects in which he or she participates, the PD is responsible for meeting project timelines, monitoring and remaining on budget, and for achieving SRI's standard of care.
