Our staff provides federal, state, local, and private groups within the Northeastern US with professional archaeological surveys in compliance with state and federal regulations. Our grants and contracts generate scholarly research that enhances the professional visibility of our staff, faculty, students, and university within the local community, region, and nation. We train archaeologists (undergraduates and graduates) to be field and research specialists within a CRM context. Our staff implements “Public Archaeology” through community programs, Native American collaborations, and preservation initiatives.
The successful candidate will be expected to be a strong cultural resource management (CRM) professional with demonstrated experience in managing all operations associated with a thriving CRM research center within a University setting.

This is a full-time research management position. The successful candidate will be expected to have a strong research focus (preferably within the Northeast or Middle Atlantic), and be capable of advancing the education, research, and outreach mission of PAF and Binghamton University.
