The Institute of Archaeology currently has a vacancy for a Lecturer in Chinese Archaeology (Ref.:1290898). The deadline for applications is 28 November 2012.  

The UCL Institute of Archaeology is the largest and one of the most highly regarded centres for archaeology, cultural heritage and museum studies in Britain and is one of the very few places in the world actively pursuing research on a truly global scale.

The International Centre for Chinese Heritage and Archaeology (ICCHA), established in 2003 as a joint association between the School for Archaeology and Museology of Peking University and the UCL Institute of Archaeology, is dedicated to promoting China's cultural past and facilitating communication between Western and Eastern scholars.

The Institute of Archaeology is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Chinese Archaeology from 1 September 2013, to work with existing colleagues in developing research and teaching in Chinese Archaeology.

This appointment will coincide with the launch of the Institute's new MA degree in the Archaeology and Heritage of Asia.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding research record for their career stage, with a proven track-record of publication. S/he must be fluent in Chinese. The person appointed will be expected to teach at both undergraduate and Masters level and to supervise PhD students.

Further details of the post and the online application facility are available on the UCL website.   Enquiries about the vacancy or the application process may be directed to the Institute's HR Administrator, Louisa Goldsmith.
