Research Associate in History and Archaeology - B182566R
 

Salary: £30,395 to £39,610 per annum

Closing date: 13 February 2019

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle University is seeking to appoint a Research Associate in History and Archaeology. You will work on a major AHRC funded research project: 'Wastes and Strays', which will investigate the past, present and future of urban commons in England, under the direction of one of the Co-Is Dr Rachel Hammersley (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 large multi-disciplinary research project.

You will work primarily with the Co-I on the past dimension of the project, exploring the history of the use, understanding, and representation of urban commons from medieval to modern times. You will, however, be fully integrated into the project as a whole, and will also participate in its other work strands, including project symposia and workshops. In particular the project methodology involves the integration of archival and archaeological techniques, and the interpretation of textual sources - both print and manuscript, visual images, artefacts and landscapes. Familiarity with archival research and the handling and interpretation of a variety of sources will therefore be essential to this role as well as experience of using archaeological field survey data.

The post is available from 1st May 2019 for two years.

Informal enquiries are encouraged and potential applicants can contact Dr Rachel Hammersley by email at Rachel.Hammersley@ncl.ac.uk.

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.


Newcastle University is committed to being a fully inclusive Global University which actively recruits, supports and retains staff from all sectors of society. We value diversity as well as celebrate, support and thrive on the contributions of all our employees and the community they represent. We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and encourage applications from everybody, regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, age, disability, gender identity, marital status/civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, as well as being open to flexible working practices.
