PAL offers a wide variety of services, including all phases of archaeological and historic architectural survey, Section 106 consultation, National Register nominations, HABS/HAER and state level documentation, historic preservation tax credit certifications, historic preservation planning, and interpretive materials. Our office is located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, “The Birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution,” in the heart of a service area that extends throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic regions. As a consequence, a large percentage of our projects require the talents of qualified Industrial Historians and Industrial Archaeologists with experience in identifying, recording, and evaluating the various types of historic industrial resources we often encounter.

The Industrial Historian conducts industrial structure, landscape, and artifact analyses, writes technical reports, and coordinates report preparation, delivering a variety of finished, professional work products with appropriate content and technical detail on time and within budget. Assigned projects primarily consist of locations with documented industrial resources (standing structures, archaeological sites, ruins, and landscapes) in a variety of urban, suburban, and rural settings.

Requirements:     
A graduate degree in history, architectural history, industrial history, or public history and at least four years of professional work experience that demonstrates a strongbackground in historic industrial resources.
    
Knowledge and understanding of the laws and regulations relating to cultural resourcemanagement (CRM).

Availability to travel for day and overnight trips, and occasional longer trips throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

PAL offers competitive pay, a comprehensive benefits package, and a casual work environment that suits and rewards motivated self-starters who are willing to work hard, communicate effectively, and make a strong contribution to a professional team. Qualified applicants should send a resume, references, and a writing sample to Donna Callahan, Human Resources Director at dcallahan@palinc.com
