Website: http://www.wapsivalleyarch.com

Wapsi Valley Archaeology of Anamosa, Iowa, has an opening for a Principal Investigator in Architectural History/History. The position is for a researcher for a wide variety of projects throughout Iowa and surrounding states, including projects that allow for in- depth historical examination. Project types will include architectural history surveys, historic context research, National Register eligibility determinations, National Register nominations, and historic mitigation projects. Responsibilities include authoring technical research reports, publications, and public outreach media such as general interest booklets and signage. This position involves research of some complexity and offers opportunities for professional growth, diversification, and skill development.

The position is for a fulltime in-house professional in our Anamosa office, who will have full benefits including vacation time, sick time, and health/dental insurance. Alternatively, we are willing to work more flexibly with an individual who lives in a different part of Iowa and prefers to work on a project-by-project basis from their own home.

This position requires fulfillment of the Secretary of the Interior’s professional qualifications standards. A graduate degree in Architectural History, History, or a related field is required, as well as (1) two years of fulltime professional experience or equivalent specialized training in research, administration, or management in their field; (2) at least four months of supervised field and analytical experience in work in their field; and (3) a demonstrated ability to carry research to completion. Professional knowledge of history and historic architecture of the upper Midwest, an understanding of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and strong writing skills are also required. This position will involve travel in Iowa and possibly in surrounding states.

We are looking for someone with experience in historic/architectural studies including reconnaissance and intensive level survey and evaluation, development of historic contexts, and formal documentation of architectural properties. Experience in preparing nominations for the National Register of Historic Places is a plus.

Please send a cover letter, CV, and writing sample to Nurit Finn, President, at ngfinn@wapsivalleyarch.com. Please see our website at www.wapsivalleyarch.com for more details about this opening and information about our firm.

Wapsi Valley Archaeology, Inc. does not discriminate on the grounds of race, religion, age, disability, color, sex, gender orientation, national origin, or protected veteran status in its employment practices, in the selection and retention of subconsultants, and in its procurement of materials and leases. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment.
