Underwater Archaeologist

Update: Job is now posted – https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/348121200. Deadline is July 30th.

Subject: Navy underwater archaeologist position — heads up

[This is] to alert you to a position in the Underwater Archaeology branch at the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) that will be advertised in the next few days. I hope that you can help us develop a good pool of candidate underwater archaeologists by sharing this with your networks.

The advertisement will be for a GS-0193-12 position located at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, relocation expenses will not be paid. The candidate pool is all US citizens. The primary duties of this position involve management of NHHC’s Archaeology & Conservation Laboratory, responsibility for conservation and curation of the Branch’s archaeological collections, leading or supporting maritime archaeological research, contributing to the development of historic preservation policy, and undertaking educational outreach initiatives.

The Underwater Archaeology program at NHHC operates an active research, compliance and conservation program associated with Navy ship and aircraft wrecks. Information on the program can be found at http://www.history.navy.mil/branches/nhcorg12.htm.

This position will be advertised in USA Jobs.  I will try to pass along the link when I get it.

Many thanks -

Jay Thomas
