The School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences is seeking an enthusiastic and motivated person to join us as Lecturer in Archaeology and make significant contributions to our teaching and research in heritage and cultural archaeology. The ideal candidate will have expertise and a track record in British archaeology and archaeological practice. A PhD qualification (or equivalent), demonstrable commitment to research, and experience of teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level are essential.

You will be expected to deliver an excellent teaching and learning experience to students at all levels and take leadership roles during the tenure of your employment. Experience of delivering training in archaeological excavation, an ability to teach topics in British Archaeology, a strong interest in inter- and multi-disciplinary research and genuine desire to establish academic leadership in archaeology are also expected. You will work across the Faculty, University and externally to build the profile of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences provides a supportive and developmental environment to all academic staff. There is a tradition of co- operation and interdisciplinary research, with many staff members working together on research applications and field training schools. This approach results in highly motivated students who are much sought after by the archaeological profession. We were among the first cohort of CiFA accredited programmes and we run a well-established, year-long undergraduate work placement scheme.

The University empowers and encourages staff to develop and maintain their own research and professional profile, and to participate in internationally leading, interdisciplinary research and innovation that helps us understand the past, and shapes and benefits future societies. The University has invested significantly in high quality research facilities and space for the School of Archaeological and Forensic Sciences. Our internationally recognised interdisciplinary research blends cultural archaeology with cutting edge science to explore the past within the context of contemporary challenges. For example, researchers at Bradford use big data to monitor and understand the impacts of historic and contemporary climate change, employ heritage and archaeology to support wellbeing, develop and apply new technology for recording endangered heritage, and promote the understanding of identity throughout the lifecourse. We lead on interdisciplinary projects internationally and collaborate across a range of disciplines within the University, including engineering, health studies, psychology and peace studies.

Our School is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in our teaching, practice and research. We hold a Bronze Athena Swan award and we attract students from a wide variety of backgrounds. We welcome applicants for this post from underrepresented groups who could be positive role models for our students and colleagues. In particular, people from BAME backgrounds are currently underrepresented across our teaching and research teams. We will consider applications for job-sharing and flexible working.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Cathy Batt, Head of Department via email on c.m.batt@bradford.ac.uk or tel.: 01274 233533.
