The School wishes to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Later Prehistoric Archaeology, commencing September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. You will specialize in the later prehistoric archaeology of the British Isles and/or northern, western or central continental Europe.

We are particularly keen to develop provision of later Bronze Age and Iron Age archaeology, but applicants with specialisms in earlier periods of later prehistory will also be considered. You will be expected to offer research-led teaching in this field at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; this will include contributions to team-taught modules (undergraduate and MA). You will also be expected to contribute to the further development of postgraduate research at Newcastle and to take on a share of administrative tasks.

You must have a PhD in a relevant field and clearly developed research plans, including world-leading or internationally excellent publications that will provide a significant contribution to the university’s next submission to the Research Excellence Framework (REF). You must have experience of undergraduate teaching and the ability to respond enthusiastically and positively to students. You will be able to work as part of a team, and be willing to work collaboratively with colleagues in other disciplines in the School and University.

Newcastle University values diversity and is committed to recruiting and supporting staff and students from all sectors of society. The University holds a Silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality, and the HR Excellence in Research award.

For informal enquiries please contact Prof. Sam Turner, Head of School (sam.turner@newcastle.ac.uk), or Dr Chris Fowler, Head of Archaeology (chris.fowler@newcastle.ac.uk).
