The incumbent of this position is a part of the Historic Preservation Partnerships (HPP) program within the Cultural Resources Directorate of the National Park Service Regional Office of DOI Regions 3, 4, and 5. The position’s duty station will be at the Midwest Archeological Center in Lincoln, NE but regular trips will be necessary to work with colleagues in the HPP program located in Omaha, NE. As such, the incumbent participates on an interdisciplinary team of cultural resource professionals who provide varied subject matter expertise and together manage the various regional partnership programs operated by the HPP. These programs include the National Historic Landmark (NHL) Program, the Historic Surplus Property Program (HSPP), the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Program (NHLPA), the Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record/Historic American Landscapes Survey (HABS/HAER/HALS) mitigation program, and the Underground Railroad/Network to Freedom.
Participants in these programs include state and local governments – such as State Historic Preservation Officers and city and county officials – and other federal agencies such as the General Service Administration (GSA), the U.S. Coast Guard, and any federal agency taking action that might affect NHLs. They also include public and private stewards of NHLs and NPS Park Superintendents with NHLs in their Midwest Region (i.e., DOI Regions 3, 4, and 5) park units.
Research, planning, and stewardship are the framework for the duties of the HPP Archeologist. Research defines the features, values, and associations that make an archeological site historically significant; planning identifies the issues and alternatives for long-term preservation; and stewardship involves activities such as condition assessments, maintenance, and training for the preservation, rehabilitation, or restoration treatment of historic properties.
The incumbent of this position will serve as the subject matter expert for the field of Archeology, resource identification, and preservation for the HPP team. The incumbent also will monitor NHLs in the region that possess archeological significance, provide education and technical assistance to stewards, and assist with the identification and documentation of additional sites and resources that may be nationally significant.
Duties will be developmental in nature when filled below the full performance level.
Occasional travel – You may be expected to travel for this position.
