In partnership with the Bureau of Land Management, the Great Basin Institute seeks an Archaeological/Curation Technician to support the Elko-DO Cultural Resources Program.
The Technician will assist in compiling archaeological site forms from legacy data present in the Elko District Office and arrange associated artifacts for curation with the Nevada State Museum. This will involve the completion of IMACS forms, GIS data construction, mapping, and curating associated artifacts. The Technician may also become involved in a variety of cultural resources management activities, such as:
Approximately 90% of the work is in the office. Office work involves creating documents (IMACS forms) and reports based on various projects, using GIS to create maps and conduct analyses, organizing and correcting analog and digital records and files, and planning and organizing field projects and educational events. Activities in the office will require a significant amount of sitting, focused on computer work as well as working with paper documents. Fieldwork will involve driving and walking over rough and sandy terrain with wide variations in temperature ranging from below freezing in the fall and winter to above 90° F during the summer. Activities outside involve walking, bending, climbing hills, lifting and carrying various materials or supplies which are occasionally heavy.
