The University of Glasgow is seeking a Lecturer in Geospatial Archaeology (Grade 7/8) (Research and Teaching Track) within the School of Humanities.
The successful candidate will undertake research of international excellence and contribute to knowledge exchange activities in the discipline within the broad area of Geospatial Archaeology. They will contribute to learning and teaching on agreed programmes within their area of specialism and beyond, at undergraduate and postgraduate level, supervise research and dissertation students, contribute to team teaching at Levels 1-2 and participate in one of our annual field schools. They will undertake administration and service activities in line with the School/College’s strategic objectives.
Expertise is sought in the field of geospatial archaeology and landscape research specialising in one or more of the following areas: archaeological remote sensing, Geographical Information Systems, landscape–scale spatial analysis using computational modelling. The successful candidate will bring period and regional expertise to complement current strengths, preferably in North-west Europe, the Mediterranean and/or the South-west Asia, and will develop an active programme of landscape-based archaeological fieldwork.
The successful candidate will make a significant research and leadership contribution to our Landscape Archaeology research cluster and work alongside a dynamic group of archaeology researchers within the subject area. Our research clusters showcase our methodological strengths in material culture, landscape studies, and digital archaeology. Regionally, our fieldwork and research has a strong focus on Scotland in its broadest insular and Atlantic contexts and on the Eastern Mediterranean and South-West Asia, where we have a longstanding and substantial engagement.
Cutting across all three research clusters, Engaged Archaeology is an underpinning ethos we share, and we have a commitment to practice and innovation within the broad area of archaeological science. To support our research within this area, the University has recently invested a £1M upgrade programme of our teaching and research laboratory facilities over 2023-24, dedicated to the scientific analysis and handling of archaeological materials and biological remains. Recently refurbished areas support the area of digital archaeology. A vibrant community of postgraduate and post-doctoral researchers play a major part in research success and contribute to our teaching portfolio and are integral to making Archaeology at Glasgow a dynamic and welcoming environment.
This post is on a full time (35 hrs per week), open ended basis.
