3 Posts for CITiZAN Coastal and InterTidal Archaeology

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.

Sea Grant Fellow

The Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program and the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program seek postdoctoral and post-master’s candidates interested in tackling science and policy challenges related to increasing coastal community resilience across the Great Lakes region. Together, these programs will fund J. Philip Keillor Wisconsin Coastal Management-Sea Grant Fellow position, named in honor of a longtime Sea Grant coastal engineering expert Phil Keillor, to celebrate his legacy in building resilience in Wisconsin communities. The Fellow will work closely with Wisconsin Coastal Management Program’s Natural Hazards Work Group, Sea Grant’s coastal engineer, local government representatives, and researchers from a variety of fields to tackle the important challenge of connecting science related to coastal processes with communities that could benefit from the information. There is some flexibility in the specific questions and approaches that the Fellow will tackle and employ, and we seek applicants from a variety of backgrounds including engineering, geology, meteorology, social sciences, ecological modeling, limnology, etc. Some specific priorities include:

  • Continue the UW Sea Grant update efforts on the Coastal Processes Manual (3rd Ed)
  • Assist with a NOAA Coastal Resilience Grant project as opportunities arise, including creating education materials on resilient coastal practices, participating in community engagement activities, and developing web-based resilience resources.
  • Assist Fellow partners with extension opportunities associated with building resilience in Wisconsin communities
  • Pursue relevant coastal hazards and resilience opportunities with other local, state, and regional Great Lakes entities as they arise, including coordination with Illinois and Indiana programs and participation in the Great Lakes Chapter of the American Beach and Shore Preservation Association

This Fellow will be stationed in downtown Madison with the Coastal Management Program at the Wisconsin Department of Administration, and will be working with researchers from across the state, region and country, in addition to stakeholders and policy-makers in Wisconsin. The position requires occasional travel, including overnight stays.  Annual stipends are dependent on the Fellow’s academic background, with post master’s Fellows earning $40,000 and postdoctoral Fellows earning $55,000, both with additional benefits (see – http://www.ohr.wisc.edu/benefits/new-emp/grad.aspx).

More detail including application instructions is available at the following link: https://www.seagrant.wisc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Wisconsin-Keillor-Fellowship-Announcement-2019.pdf

Deadline for applications is March 28, 2019.

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.
