Cranfield University is an international centre of excellence in research and postgraduate teaching in strategic areas of applied science, technology, engineering and management, directed by the need of industry. We attract 4,500 masters and doctoral students each year from over 100 countries.

Cranfield Forensic Institute (CFI) provides a university wide focus for the application of science and technology to law enforcement particularly through niche areas of forensic science. This extends to research and consultancy in archaeological science and physical anthropology for musuems and archaeological units as well as police forces and other agencies.

You will need to be able to teach in both archaeology and human skeletal anatomy.

Main responsibilities include:

  • Pursuance of an active and high impact research agenda in the field of forensic archaeology/anthropology or archaeological science, including writing for and publishing in relevant high-quality peer reviewed journals
  • Design, develop, deliver and assess a range of MSc modules in the field of forensic archaeology/anthropology or archaeological science, ensuring coherence with both student needs and customer requirements
  • Thesis supervision, primarily at MSc level and undertake PhD supervision if qualified
  • Consultancy work involving fieldwork in the UK and abroad

You will have a degree level education and a PhD in a related area. You will have significant experience in archaeology/anthropology either commercially or for a university or equivalent.

Subject matter expertise in archaeology/anthropology including archaeological techniques and human skeletal anatomy is essential.
