Beschreibung der Stelle

Trinity Lecturer in Historical Archaeology

Applications are invited for a permanent University Lectureship in Historical Archaeology, to start on 1st January 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter. This post will be held in conjunction with a Fellowship (or Honorary Membership) of Lucy Cavendish College. The starting salary for this post will be limited to points 49-51 within the Grade 9 salary range (£37,012 - £39,257).
Applicants will be expected to have a PhD, a proven ability to undertake research, a strong publication record and an active research project or plans for one which will attract graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. The post holder will be a member of the teaching staff of the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology and will provide lectures, teaching and research supervision at undergraduate and graduate levels in Historical Archaeology, broadly defined as the post-Roman, medieval and post-medieval archaeology of Europe and the archaeology of European colonialism.
The post-holder will also be expected to provide teaching in team-taught thematic courses and seminars within the Department and Division, as appropriate. Normal duties include examination and assessment, supervision of MPhil and PhD students, divisional, departmental and university administration, and outreach. Preference is likely to be given to applicants with research interests and teaching expertise that complement existing strengths within the Division, and with the potential to develop further the inter-faculty links between Archaeology, Classics, History and Anglo-Saxon Norse and Celtic.
The successful candidate will also be expected to become the Director of Studies in Archaeology and Anthropology at Lucy Cavendish College, a college for mature women students which currently admits 2-3 students in this Tripos each year. Directors of Studies are involved in admissions and are responsible for organizing, and contributing to, the individual and small group teaching of the undergraduates in their college.
For information on the University of Cambridge see www.cam.ac.uk, on the Division of Archaeology see www.arch.cam.ac.uk., for Lucy Cavendish see www.lucy-cav.cam.ac.uk. The Division academic staff form the core of a very strong research community in Archaeology that has been awarded outstanding grades in successive national research assessment exercises. Staff carry out research in all periods of the past, on most regions of the world, and with approaches across the full spectrum of humanities-based, text-aided and science-based archaeology.
The Division of Archaeology is a member of the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, which also includes the Divisions of Biological Anthropology and Social Anthropology, the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, the Haddon Library and the Cambridge Archaeological Unit. The Division is the largest unit in the Faculty of Human, Social and Political Science, which is within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Approximately 75 undergraduates take a common first year (Part I) in the Archaeology and Anthropology BA degree (HSPS Tripos). Students can choose to specialise in the archaeology of Prehistoric Europe, the Americas, the Ancient Near East, South Asia, Historical archaeology, or Archaeological Science. Classical archaeology courses are offered by the Faculty of Classics, and courses in early and later medieval archaeology are taken by students from the Faculty of History and the Department of Anglo-Saxon Norse and Celtic, as well as from the Division of Archaeology.
Each year approximately 35 graduate students take one-year MPhil courses offered by the Division of Archaeology, of which a cohort takes Medieval Archaeology as their main option. There are around 110 PhD students in the Division. Attached to the McDonald Institute are around 30 post-doctoral researchers holding individual Research Fellowships or working on staff research projects, and many other scholars across the University, whose interests range from Quaternary Research to museums and heritage. There is an active Historical Archaeology Seminar Series of lectures by invited speakers.
