Field Archaeologist in Residence
The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research
Salary: up to £10,500
Limit of Tenure applies*
As an initiative, actively to promote strong links between 'academic' and 'field' archaeology, the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research wishes to recruit a Field Archaeologist in Residence, ideally for the Michaelmas Term (3 October to 1 December 2017) or the Lent Term (16 January to 16 March 2018). This scheme will entail an award of up to £10,500 to allow a respected archaeological practitioner to spend one term at the Institute, covering replacement salary costs and/or research expenses. Their remit will be to give two seminars (on field archaeology and/or their research project) and to pursue one or more of the following objectives: - to complete a piece of research that would not be possible within the context of commercially funded archaeology (if a commercial sector candidate) - to work with a commercial unit to produce an important piece of 'value-added' research (if a university-based candidate) - to research the process of archaeological fieldwork and/or its dissemination (be it a commercial sector or university-based candidate) - to use archives available in Cambridge to further a piece of field-based research
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for approximately 10 weeks depending on the salary replacement costs of the successful applicant.
