MOLA are seeking to recruit a team of experienced, dynamic and driven specialists in intertidal and community archaeology to deliver six CITiZAN Discovery Programmes as part of a new 3 year HLF funded project. The list below lays out the office and project locations for the three posts:
• 1x post at the CBA Offices, York (job ref: CITSCA0219N)
• 1x post at the NAS Offices, Portsmouth (job ref: CITSCA0219S)
• 1x post at MOLA London office (job ref: CITSCA0219L)
CITiZAN Discovery Programmes 2019-2021
CITiZAN (the Coastal & InterTidal Zone Archaeological Network) addresses the damaging effects of climate change, rising sea levels, extreme storms and increased tidal scour on our coast and particularly on archaeological features exposed to such unremitting erosion. Key project partners are The Crown Estate, The National Trust, Historic England, Nautical Archaeology Society and The Council for British Archaeology.

Might have closed, but I can’t find that it did not get extended?
In order to provide for the investigation, recording, conservation, protection and promotion of significant underwater heritage assets, including those most at risk through neglect, decay or other threats in freshwater locations and in subtidal environments within UK territorial waters adjacent to Scotland, Historic Scotland is seeking to procure a service which covers the following requirements;
Undertake specific surveys with other partner bodies;
Carry out field assessments;
Monitor designated assets & undertake remedial action;
Maintain and deliver an archive of primary data along with reports

ICREA Research Professor Sandra Montón Subías, established at Departament d’Humanitats, Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona, Spain), is interested in receiving Expressions of Interest of potential candidates for the Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA IF) 2019 call.
Prof. Montón Subías is one of the few established professors teaching and researching historical archaeology in continental Europe and in Spain. Her current fields of research are the archaeology of modern Iberian colonialism and the First Globalization. Moreover, being committed to a feminist archaeology, throughout her career she has investigated topics of gender and identity, with her current research focusing on the effects of Spanish colonialism on gender systems, women’s maintenance activities, and processes of identity on the island of Guam.
Prof. Sandra Montón-Subías is currently PI in the project Material Culture, Colonialism and Gender in the Pacific. An approach from Historical Archaeology and director of the project ABERIGUA (Archaeology of Iberian Cultural Contact and Colonialism in Guam and the Mariana Islands). She also coordinates the UPF’s research group CGyM (Colonialism, Gender and Materialities). Since 2015, she co-directs the archaeological excavations conducted at different locations in the island of Guam, Mariana Islands (Western Pacific).
Prof. Montón Subías is interested in sponsoring up to 3 postdoctoral students working in any subject related to the previous projects including the Archaeology of Colonialism, the Archaeology of Gender and the Archaeology of the Manila Galleon.
