This appointment offers an exciting opportunity to join the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology in the School of History and Cultures at the University of Birmingham. We seek a specialist to extend our expertise in the archaeology of the Ancient World, broadly understood as encompassing the Mediterranean basin and ranging in date from the late Bronze Age to the late Roman period (precise area/period open). We also seek specialism in one or more of the following areas: landscape archaeology; GIS; field survey; material culture studies. The department has a continuing tradition of fieldwork, to which the person appointed should contribute.
The appointment would be expected to consolidate and expand our UG teaching provision, expand PGT and PGR recruitment and work with one or more of our research centres to bolster the department’s research strength. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to courses at undergraduate levels C, I and H (i.e. First, Second and Final years) and to contribute to our postgraduate programmes (where appropriate). As part of her/his undergraduate remit, the successful candidate will be expected to provide Project and Seminar (small group) teaching in the area of their specialism and to undertake or contribute to other modules more widely. As part of his/her postgraduate remit, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to taught programmes and to supervise research students. The successful candidate will also be asked in due course to undertake administrative duties within the Department, School or College. S/he will be expected to participate in our plans for the REF and in helping to increase our postgraduate recruitment, ideally contributing to the further development of taught and research provision.
