Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the European Celtic Art in Context project, at the School of Archaeology, University of Oxford. The position is funded by a Leverhulme Trust grant led by Professor Chris Gosden.

The post is a full-time appointment, for a fixed-term of 12 months available from the end of January 2017.

The European Celtic Art in Context project aims to characterise and contextualise Celtic Art across Western Europe and look at possible connections with areas further to the east.

Applicants must have a PhD in Archaeology. A demonstrated track record of publications is desirable, as is experience working within the European Iron Age. Languages, such as German or French, and experience researching prehistoric art are desirable but not essential.
