04/16/2012 21:59 | AAC Admin (Administrator)

Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. (ACS) of Tempe, Arizona, is seeking to hire a Laboratory Manager. The ideal candidate will have experience in both managing an archaeological laboratory and in Southwest ceramic analysis. Although Southwest ceramic analysis is not essential, an alternative skill set is essential for ensuring a full-time position. The duties of the position involve management of processing, storage, and curation of archaeological collections, which may go to a number of curatorial facilities, each with its own set of requirements. Management of the company’s vehicles and field equipment is central to the position, as is participation in management of the physical plant. This individual must have a Master’s degree in Anthropology and excellent writing skills.

This is a full-time position, eligible for benefits after a three-month introductory period. The position requires working from the ACS office in Tempe, Arizona and is not open to telecommuting or subconsulting. Salary is negotiable based on experience. ACS benefits include vacation, holiday leave, sick leave, a major portion of the employee’s health and dental insurance under the company plans; participation in a 401(k) program can begin once certain additional criteria have been met.

Please send a current vitae with a cover letter identifying the salary level at which you wish to be considered and the names, phone numbers, and/or e-mail addresses of three references who can comment on your qualifications to:  jobs@acstempe.com. We will be accepting applications from April 13-May 15, 2012, although a suitable candidate may be hired before the closing date.
