The University of St Andrews seeks to employ a full time Research Assistant on a fixed term contract of one year (with possibility of extension) to work on the Scotland’s Coastal Heritage at Risk and other coastal heritage projects.
SCHARP builds upon the results of research into the coastal heritage of Scotland which produced a prioritized shortlist of coastal heritage sites requiring action in the face of loss due to coastal erosion. The project has recruited and trained a network of volunteers across Scotland who have updated and enhanced records of priority sites. The data collected will underpin the preparation of a strategy for coastal heritage in Scotland which is a key deliverable of the project in its final phase. SCHARP has also supported a number of individual community projects at coastal sites. These include excavations, surveys and interpretation and conservation. These projects will be brought to completion in the final phase of SCHARP.
