The School of History, Archaeology and Religion is seeking to recruit a new Lecturer 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. Our BA Archaeology recently received 100% overall satisfaction in the 2021 National Student Survey.
The role is to deliver high-quality, research-informed teaching (and activities related to teaching), developing, delivering and evaluating undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of study. In addition to teaching, you will act as a personal tutor to students, engage and contribute to scholarship in the area of Higher Education through participation in relevant events and activities, and carry out academic administrative duties within the School as required. You will be provided with office space as well as access to funding for conferences/travel to pursue developments in scholarship.
We are looking to appoint a lecturer who will develop teaching and research in the field of post-Roman/early medieval archaeology. Initially you will contribute to teaching in Anglo-Saxon archaeology, but will have the opportunity to develop specialist teaching in post-Roman/early medieval archaeology as a part of ongoing programme development. We are particularly keen to hear from applicants who are able to build on our long-established tradition of research into early medieval western Britain. The ability to undertake archaeological fieldwork, or to complement the existing strengths of the department, is particularly welcome. You will also contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in archaeological method and theory relative to your expertise.
You should have a PhD in (or equivalent research experience) and teaching experience at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level in early medieval archaeology or related subject. 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, is available immediately and is open-ended.
