The successful candidate will be able to cover the field of Classical Archaeology based on the material heritage of the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean using a wide variety of approaches.

The ideal candidate will also be willing to work in an interdisciplinary context. He or she will be able to contribute actively to collaborative research projects within the institute and the faculty, to cooperate with projects in the university’s art collections (“Kunstsammlungen”, ancient and modern) and the institute’s workshop for practical archaeology, as well as to develop projects and acquire third party funding independently. Your PhD should have been completed no more than 5 years ago; additional publications should have followed.
