The Department of Archaeology at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the fixed term role of Lecturer. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Classical Archaeology and we are particularly eager to hear from applicants with a focus on applied methods in landscape archaeology, in particular Geographic Information Systems (QGIS).

This post offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of excellent research and teaching within an exciting and progressive institution. For more information, please visit our Department pages at www.durham.ac.uk/archaeology/

The role of a fixed term Lecturer at Durham provides the opportunity to deliver outstanding education and research within an inclusive and supportive environment that is staffed by world class colleagues. Lecturers will be supported to develop their academic careers by training and financial support in research and education, guided by a designated mentor.

The primary focus of this role is on research and teaching but there will also be the opportunity to engage in wider citizenship within the University and beyond.

This role of Lecturer is for a fixed term of 1 year and to provide cover for a colleague who will be undertaking another role in the department. The need to extend the role beyond this fixed term period will be reviewed towards the end of the contracted period.

Applicants must demonstrate research excellence in the field of Classical Archaeology and Applied Landscape Archaeology, with the ability to teach our students to an exceptional standard and to fully engage in the services, citizenship and values of the University. The University provides a working and teaching environment which is inclusive and welcoming and where everyone is treated fairly with dignity and respect. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate these key principles as part of the assessment process.
