The Department of Archaeology at York is recognised internationally as a leading institution for archaeological research tackling global issues that are both important and challenging. Our core strengths in human evolution and prehistory, Roman, medieval, historical and field archaeology are complemented by our specialisms in bioarchaeology, digital archaeology, African archaeology, buildings conservation and heritage, and experimental archaeology and artefact studies.

We aim to ensure that there is a supportive and egalitarian culture across all staff groups and levels. We promote good practice and a strong culture of equality in higher education.

As well as excellent analytical skills, the role holder will be able to manage large relational datasets and have the ability to interpret and contextualise their results within broader archaeological debates.
The post will involve substantial independent travel to Russia and Latvia to analyse material held in local collections. It is essential that you are willing and able to undertake this travel.
