Joseph Schuldenrein, Ph.D., RPA      

President and Principal Archaeologist
Dr. Joseph Schuldenrein is Principal Archeologist and President of Geoarcheology Research Associates (GRA). A former Fulbright Fellow in Geology and Archaeology (Hebrew University, Israel) and Fellow of the Field Museum of Chicago, Dr. Schuldenrein received his Ph.D. in environmental archeology at the University of Chicago in 1983. His professional experience includes work across the entire Eastern Woodlands as well in all geographic areas west of the Mississippi River. Internationally he has consulted on projects in Central Europe, the entire Middle East, India and eastern and southern Africa. He is involved in research on Human Origins, early civilizations (South Asia) and site formation process in the Middle Atlantic region of North America and elsewhere. Dr. Schuldenrein has served as Principal Investigator on over 80 archeological and paleoenvironmental projects with a wide variety of clients in the federal, state, local and private sectors. He is the liaison between the Register of Professional Archeologists (RPA) and the Society for Archaeological Sciences (SAS), as well as past president of the Professional Archaeologists of New York City (PANYC). He has published widely in key professional journals including American Antiquity, Journal of Field Archaeology, Geoarchaeology, Journal of Archeological Sciences, and has contributed to numerous edited volumes. In recent years, Dr. Schuldenrein has been extensively involved in large scale project management, attempting to integrate the various disciplines within CRM. He is also active in the Society for American Archaeology's drive to restructure educational priorities in higher education towards empirical and applied objectives. Dr. Schuldenrein has been a reviewer on numerous funding and granting panels and has appeared on television and radio to advance the exposure of professional archeology.
