Are you interested in working for a world top 100 university?

We are looking to appoint a Teaching Technician in Field Archaeology (excavation, survey, geophysics, geomatics) on a Fixed Term Contract of 12 months. This role’s primary responsibilities are to teach and support student learning and staff research projects in the areas of landscape archaeology and the collection and visualization of archaeological data. The post holder will have a background in archaeology, or a closely related discipline, and will already be familiar with the use of routine surveying, geomatics and geophysics equipment relevant to archaeology (e.g. GNSS, laser scanning, total stations, UAVs, gradiometer and resistance meters), from both a practical and theoretical perspective, and will be able to demonstrate use of relevant geomatics software (including GIS, CAD, and 3D visualization packages). They will have responsibility for maintaining the department’s field, geomatics, geophysics and 3D scanning equipment. They will become a member of our technical support team, and will work closely with academic staff to enhance student experience during teaching, and by supporting student projects and dissertations. They will work with external partners in the enhancement of student learning, coordinating placements and developing joint projects between the commercial and heritage sectors and the Department.  They will also liaise with external partners and staff to develop and help coordinate commercial projects.

The Department of Archaeology offers a friendly and close-knit academic community, which undertakes world-leading academic research that tackles themes of global relevance, such as health, life histories and identities. Our strengths in education attract exceptional students from across the world and our training is highly valued by employers for its foundations in professional skills, and fostering of academic knowledge and critical thought. We sustain varied partnerships in our region and beyond, providing meaningful contributions to the heritage industry and public life increasing the national and global reputation of the University of Sheffield.

We are one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development. We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
