Working cooperatively with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Redding Field Office (FO), the Great Basin Institute is recruiting a Cultural Resources Technician to assist BLM resource specialists with on-the-ground field studies to identify cultural, historical, and/or paleontological resources. Work may involve designing and conducting inventories; compiling and interpreting collected data; researching reference materials; writing reports on inventory activities; or preparing documents for determination of eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places. Most work will be done under the guidance of the BLM resource specialist, but some work may be carried out independently. Project work will also include assisting with researching, organizing, and salvaging existing BLM legacy data, including digital material and hard media; and assisting with planning, coordination, and development of outreach projects and volunteer programs.
Some work is performed in an outdoor environment that ranges from very cold and wet to very hot and dry. This work may require physical exertion over very steep, wet, muddy, slippery, rough, uneven or rocky surfaces; and also may include bending, crouching, stooping, stretching, reaching, and similar activities. Overnight camping for several days at a time in remote areas may occasionally be required.
