Bournemouth University’s vision is worldwide recognition as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice. Our highly skilled and creative workforce is comprised of individuals drawn from a broad cross section of the globe, who reflect a variety of backgrounds, talents, perspectives and experiences that help to build our global learning community.
The Department of Archaeology and Anthropology offers a vibrant research and learning culture with a strong reputation for practical, applied and theoretically-informed archaeological and anthropological science. Our research expertise spans three main themes: communities and identities (especially diet, subsistence and mobility, the anthropology of conflict and violence, and cultural identity); animals, plants and environments (especially human/animal interactions, palaeoecological reconstruction of past environments and human response to environmental change); and artefacts, places and landscapes (especially the use of remote sensing and geographical techniques, and material culture, production and consumption). Two Research Institutes are also aligned with the department, The Institute for Modelling Socio-Environmental Transitions (IMSET) and The Institute for Studies in Landscape and Human Evolution (ISLHE).
As Lecturer (Academic) in Biological Anthropology, you will be able to demonstrate expertise in an area of biological anthropology that complements and/or expands our existing Biological Anthropology teaching and research capacity. Enthusiastic about student-centred pedagogy, you will contribute to education delivery, including programme management as required, across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. You will also make a significant contribution to employability, and professional engagement with relevant internal and external organisations, at a regional, national and international level.
You will be qualified to Doctoral level or be able to demonstrate the ability to create and disseminate knowledge at an equivalent level and the capability to convert this knowledge into a doctorate in a maximum of 3-5 years from date of appointment. You will be research active and committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement.
Applications are welcome from those with particular expertise in human bioarchaeology and/or human evolution. You will have experience of both research and teaching within your field. Experience of teaching practical field, laboratory or analytical skills is particularly welcome.
