A dynamic and innovative researcher is sought to appoint to a full-time Associate Professorship beginning as soon as possible in 2024.

The post-holder will be expected to supervise research students and Masters’ dissertations and undertake relevant administrative duties. The post-holder should be prepared to support the continued development of our capacity for teaching and researching digital and community archaeology, including contributing to fundraising for equipment capital.

Applicants should have a strong background in digital and public archaeology, particularly in the UK. This should include expertise in diverse methodologies for data capture, visualization, sustainable storage, and re-use. As digital media have become crucial in enabling public engagement, we are seeking someone with a track record of delivering original approaches in this area.

They should also be able to continue our mission of applying cutting-edge archaeological research through Archaeology South-East; the candidate should therefore have experience of archaeological resource management in the UK or comparable regulatory contexts.

The successful candidate should be academically agile and able to teach on a range of topics related to digital heritage and community archaeology at a postgraduate level, including on our MA Cultural Heritage Studies and MA Managing Archaeological Sites.
