Post-doctoral Research Associate in Archaeology - B197744R
 

Salary: £30,395 - £39,610 per annum

Closing Date: 5 April 2019

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle University is seeking to appoint a Research Associate in Archaeology. You will work on a major Leverhulme funded research project: ‘Unmasking Masks’, which will investigate the use and significance of masks in early Prehistory, under the direction of Dr Chantal Conneller (School of History, Classics and Archaeology). You will be based in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a new research project with a wide temporal and geographical remit.

You will be responsible for the empirical analysis on which the project is based. This includes study of artefactual masks, representations and excavation archives. Familiarity with early prehistoric organic technologies is therefore essential and expertise in prehistoric art and archive research desirable. You will work collaboratively with the principle investigator in producing project outputs, organising project workshops and outreach activities.

The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality.  The University also holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers, and is a member of the Euraxess initiative supporting researchers in Europe.
