  • Affordable living in Cranbrook, Kimberley, the Columbia Valley, or Golden.
  • The chance to learn more about mountain geomorphology than you ever thought you needed.
  • No health benefits. That’s right. No benefits. We’ll just pay you more, and you can spend your money as you see fit. No more buying into a plan so you can subsidize your co-worker’s prescription aromatherapy.

We want you because you have:

  • Minimum 2 years Field Director status in the Interior Plateau region of BC (preference will be given to existing permit holding status).
  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree in archaeology or anthropology.
  • 5+ years of archaeological field work experience with at least two years as crew lead.
