The School of History, Archaeology and Religion is seeking to recruit a new Research Associate in Early Medieval Archaeology to join our dynamic and forward-looking team. We pride ourselves on providing a diverse and stimulating learning environment informed by our leading research and scholarship and are very much looking forward to welcoming new talent to our team.
Archaeology has been taught and researched at Cardiff for over 100 years and the School continues to lead developments in archaeological science, theory and method.
You will join the research project ‘Making the March: Contesting Lands in the Early Medieval Frontier’ (PI Dr Andy Seaman) funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Making the March brings together historians and archaeologists and seeks to offer the first interdisciplinary, multi-scalar analysis of the creation and development of the early medieval frontier in the Welsh March. It aims provide a holistic view of the frontier through focused archaeological and historical analysis to and restore the March as a crucial part of the fabric of early medieval Britain.
The role will entail desk-based collation and analysis of archaeological datasets, and you will also contribute to the delivery of field investigations, including landscape and site survey and evaluation excavation, as well as post-excavation analysis, and the production of research outputs. The role will require fieldwork on various locations along the March and you will have the opportunity to present research at major conferences.
You will have expertise in the early medieval archaeology of Britain, ideally with experience of working on the landscape archaeology of the March. Prior experience of leading fieldwork and GIS are particularly desirable. You should have a PhD in a relevant subject area (or equivalent research experience). Applicants should also have excellent communication and IT skills, to include the ability to present complex and specialist professional concepts clearly and confidently to others, using high-level skills and a range of media.
You will join our lively and dynamic School which is internationally recognised for its research and teaching. The School of History, Archaeology and Religion is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, and was recently awarded an Athena SWAN bronze award. Appointments will always be made on merit.
This is a full time post, fixed term until 22nd January 2027.
Salary: £39,347 - £44,263 per annum (Grade 6)
