Posted in Uncategorized by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on May 22, 2017

The Research Specialist is responsible for the design and implementation of research projects that are aligned with the Institute’s cultural heritage engineering and technology programs, and that engage students and staff in the lab and in the field. Under the general direction of the director of the Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture, and Archaeology (CISA3) housed within the Qualcomm Institute/Calit2, the Research Specialist will lead and conduct original research involving the application of enabling technologies and digital workflows to the documentation and study of cultural heritage sites, structures, and objects.

The Research Specialist will lead an emerging CISA3 focus on underwater cultural heritage and is expected to draw from a background in marine robotic platforms (e.g. ROV, AUV) as well as from experience involving the deployment of such technology. Expertise in photogrammetric techniques is also essential, as is knowledge of underwater remote sensing survey methodologies.

In addition to leading collaborative research projects involving underwater and maritime heritage, the Research Specialist will perform duties in the following areas: student-driven research and expedition support; relations between researchers, faculty and industry partners; fund raising (in collaboration with, and under the direction of the Directors of Advancement and Office of Innovation and Commercialization); public relations; program planning; and educational outreach.

The Research Specialist will be tasked with high level technical, financial and operational oversight, manage significant elements of project deliverables and work with external partners and UCSD divisions to build research programs at CISA3, Calit2, and beyond.

Ashtabula County Underwater Archaeology Survey 

The Ohio History Connection’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) seeks professional consultant services for completion of a survey to identify and evaluate marine cultural resources within the Lake Erie waters of Ashtabula County, Ohio. The survey area for this project will include areas of higher potential for submerged cultural resources within an estimated 30 square miles of the approximately 30 linear-mile Ashtabula County shoreline area. To date, three shipwrecks have been previously identified within this area and no professional archaeological survey has been conducted. Results of this project will be used as a model for the planning of future surveys within Lake Erie, the coordination of relevant federal and state projects under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and for disaster planning in Ohio waters as it relates to marine cultural resources. The available funding for this project, which is supported by Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief funds (CFDA 15.957), is $40,000-$60,000.
