The School of Humanities and Educational Studies seeks to appoint a Lecturer / Senior Lecturer to contribute to the delivery and the development of our BA (Hons) Archaeology. The ideal candidate would have research and/or teaching experience in Early Medieval Archaeology, preferably with a complementary specialism in any of the following areas: heritage, community archaeology, maritime archaeology (to dovetail with existing areas of strength in the Humanities), digital archaeology (to support the School’s strategic commitment to enhancing student digital literacy) or bioarchaeology (to strengthen the potential for cross-Faculty collaborations). The School would also welcome applications from exceptional candidates with other areas of expertise, who nonetheless have the ability to draw on the landscape and archaeology of our unique location in a World Heritage Site, and of our surrounding region, in order to deliver an excellent student experience.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach at all levels in their area of expertise, as well as to contribute to the delivery of research methods. The postholder will report to the Archaeology Subject Lead, and work closely with other members of the Archaeology team, as well as with colleagues in the cognate discipline of History.
The School is committed to an inclusive curriculum which aims to improve the experience, skills and attainment of all students. Your responsibilities will include playing a commensurate role in the collaborative development of an inclusive curriculum, and in the enhancement of the student experience; to that end, you will be required to provide pastoral, as well as academic, support to students, and contribute to the management of the Archaeology course. You must be able to demonstrate a sense of initiative, creativity and judgment in applying appropriate approaches to teaching and learning support, and other scholarly activities.
A Ph.D. in Archaeology, a broad understanding of current developments in the field, and previous experience of HE teaching are essential requirements. An HE teaching qualification or fellowship of Advance HE, and membership of the Chartered Institute for Archaeology would also be advantageous
