 Solano Archaeological Services, based out of the San Francisco Bay Area and a new Sierra Nevada office, has been providing the full range of cultural resources management services to a broad array of private and agency clients in the western U.S. for over 16 years.  We are presently looking for local archaeological monitors to staff projects in the Sacramento-Stockton region and in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Pay for monitors will depend on experience and will range from $20.00 to $25.00 per hour.

  • Provide timely, clear, and effective communication to senior SAS staff 

    These are local projects and while no per-diem is available, mileage to and from the work sites is reimbursable at the going Federal rate. The work will typically not be physically demanding although the monitor must be comfortable working 8+ hours a day in the summer sun and heat.  The monitor will also be working in immediate proximity to heavy construction and grading equipment.   

    The monitor’s qualifications and experience must include: 
  • A bachelor’s degree in anthropology or a closely related field
