The mission of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is to provide and protect outstanding natural, scenic, cultural, historic, and recreational sites for the enjoyment and education of present and future generations.

Join our team as a Cultural Resource Analyst, where your decisions carry substantial weight, influencing the state and agency’s relationships with stakeholders and playing a crucial role in preserving our state’s invaluable historic resources. The Cultural Resource Analyst is a subject-matter expert in federal and state cultural resource law and professional historic preservation practice for built environment cultural resources, including buildings, structures, sites, objects, and infrastructure. This position works collaboratively with Tribal governments and federal, state, and local government agencies and their representatives to assist agencies with fulfilling their responsibilities under Section 106 of the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act and Oregon state cultural resource laws. Your expertise will be crucial in identifying significant historic properties and assessing the impact of projects on the unique qualities that make these places special.

Responsibilities include providing timely and professional written guidance and recommendations to partners, active participation in working group meetings, and on-site evaluation of historic properties. You will also represent Oregon on teams to create inter-agency agreements, including Memorandums of Agreement to mitigate adverse impacts on historic properties and Programmatic Agreements that guide an agency’s approach to preserving important places across the state. The Compliance Specialist also leads in creating public education materials, delivering presentations, and spearheading projects focused on assessing, developing, and implementing innovative work processes and systems. Join us in making a meaningful impact on preserving our state’s cultural heritage.

This position is “hybrid,” allowing for work-from-home opportunities, but does require regularly scheduled in-office work at the agency’s Salem, OR office and day and overnight travel to off-site locations across the state at least once a month, and often more frequently. Travel expenses are reimbursed.

  • NCPE Internships: Eligibility & How to Apply


    All NCPE interns received an hourly stipend, the rate is listed at each position description. Additionally, interns receive paid time off (PTO), paid Federal holidays if working full-time, and access to NCPE's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for career and personal counseling, coaching, and referrals. Project sites may also offer a housing allowance and/or commuting stipend; this information is also listed in the description or offered during the interview.

    Eligible NCPE interns who successfully complete their internships may count their position towards earning a Public Land Corps (PLC) Non-Competitive Hiring Authority certificate. To be eligible to earn a PLC certificate, an intern must be 30 years old or younger (or 35 if a veteran). Once earned, the PLC hiring authority certificate may be used to apply for eligible Federal temporary, term, or permanent positions. Successful completion of a NCPE internship does not guarantee Federal employment. Contact for more details.


    To be eligible, applicants must be at least 18 years old, currently enrolled in a degree-seeking academic program at the college level (or recently graduated within the past 12 months), and be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident. Interns are not eligible to work more than 1200 hours total in the program; previous interns must stay within this overall limit. The length of an internship can vary from 10 to 30 weeks if full time (40 hours per week) or longer if on a part-time schedule. If selected, the exact starting date will be determined by you and the NPS supervisor. The stipend rate is $17.00 per hour unless otherwise listed.

    The successful candidate is responsible for finding and paying for travel to and housing at the internship location; some exceptions apply. The supervising office may be able to assist in locating housing but it is ultimately up to the individual accepting the internship to find accommodation.

    The National Council requires all interns working in-person at Federal facilities and/or with Federal employees receive the Covid-19 vaccination. Please be advised that you may also be required to wear a mask, depending on the protocols adopted by your work site. Also be aware that, due to Government-wide security requirements, a background check will be required if you are selected for a position. This will include providing information about recent housing and employment history. The position supervisor will have more information about these requirements and procedures at the time of hiring. You may direct any questions to NCPE's Internship Program Director, Julee Johnson, at

    Please note that interns are not NCPE or NPS employees. Stipends are academic awards and taxes are not withheld, nor are social security contributions made on your behalf. These funds may be taxable, however, so consult a tax preparation professional if you have questions.
