Website ASM Affiliates

ASM is a 100% employee-owned company with more than 45 years of experience as a cultural resource management (CRM) consulting firm. We specialize in architectural history, history, and archaeology and environmental regulatory compliance services for federal, state, and local agencies and private proponents throughout California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii.

ASM Affiliates (ASM) has an opening for a full-time Architectural Historian based in Portland, Oregon; initially the position will be completely remote; with the planned opening of an office in Portland, the candidate would be expected to convert to a hybrid work schedule (40% – 2 days in office).

As an Architectural Historian, you will be expected to perform efficiently in a team environment as well as working independently in a fast-paced environment. You will also be expected to work with minimal supervision under the direction of the Director of Architectural History, based in Carlsbad, California. Project work may include the following: documentation and recordation of historic properties; architectural surveys; historic context development, evaluation of properties under NRHP, as well as Oregon and Washington state criteria; and effects determinations in compliance with NHPA and NEPA, as well as local and state regulations. The position will support all of our offices with potential travel opportunities throughout the west coast including Hawaii. A positive attitude will best enable the historian to succeed in ASM’s collaborative work environment and develop mutually beneficial relationships with clients, vendors, subconsultants, co-workers, and management.
