The Institute of Archaeology currently has a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Trainee post, available on the CHEurope programme (Ref.: 1648904). The deadline for applications is 21 June 2017.

This is one of 15 PhD positions offered at 7 different European Higher Educational Institutions as part of the Critical Heritage Studies and the Future of Europe: Towards an integrated, interdisciplinary and transitional training model in cultural heritage research and management (CHEurope) doctoral training programme.

CHEurope is funded by the EU under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) - Innovative Training Networks (ITN).

The successful candidate will be based in the UCL Institute of Archaeology and work on the ESR2 "Climate change and the future of European heritage" project. This comparative project will explore responses to climate change in relation to specific national and international initiatives across natural and cultural heritage management agencies which attempt to engage with issues raised by climate change and future ecological forecasting, comparing and exploring ways in which they might be better integrated.

The position is available for an immediate start, funded for up to 36 months, but not extending beyond the project end date of 31 October 2020.

The ESR Fellowships only cover the fee levels for EU citizens, not those for students from outside the EU. All applicants are advised to ensure that they are eligible for UK/EU equivalent fee levels prior to applying for the position.
