Post Grad Opportunity in Maritime Archaeology

Flinders University – Archaeology and History, situated in the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS), offers a vibrant research and teaching environment. CHASS has recently appointed two new academic staff in Archaeology, Dr Mike Morley and Dr Ania Kotarba, to expand capacity in the areas of archaeological science, Classical and Indian Ocean archaeology, maritime archaeology and human evolutionary studies.

We are now seeking high-achieving postgraduate research students (Masters and PhD) with a background in archaeology, ancient history, archaeological science, oceanography, Quaternary environments, marine and environmental science, with a focus on:

· Coastal and maritime archaeology,

· Mediterranean, Near Eastern, wider-Indian Ocean (including Eastern and Southern African, South Arabian and South Asian) archaeology and ancient history

· Cultural Heritage management and protection

· Human evolution and Pleistocene dispersals

· Landscape archaeology and human-environment interactions

· Geoarchaeology and Microarchaeology

We are open to helping devise new topics to suit a student’s particular interests so please get in touch. We have a number of options for funding so please contact us to discuss.

RFP Underwater Archaeology

Parks Canada Agency (PCA) is inviting Archaeological consulting firms with under-water or marine specialization expertise to submit proposals for Standing Offers. The selected consultants shall provide a range of services as identified in the Required Services section of this document.

Proponents shall be licensed or eligible to be licensed to practice in the province of Ontario. Firms should be able to demonstrate successful delivery of these services for a broad variety of projects over the last five (5) years. In general, the firm and its personnel will be evaluated on the basis of their demonstrated understanding of the scope of services, their approach and methodology to providing those services, the quality of their relevant experience in this area, as well as the cost of the provision of the services.

It is PCA’s intention to authorize up to five (5) Standing Offers, each for a period of three (3) years from the date of issuance, with three (3) one year options to extend the Standing Offers. The total dollar value of all Standing Offers is estimated to be $5,000,000.00 (Applicable Taxes included). Individual call-ups will vary, up to a maximum of $400,000.00 (Applicable Taxes included). Proponents should note that there is no guarantee that the full or any amount of the Standing Offers will be called-up; PCA will issue call-ups only when the specific services to be provided under the Standing Offer are needed.

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 –
