Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in Endangered Archaeology
The School of Archaeology, 1 South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3TG
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa (EAMENA) project in the School of Archaeology at the University of Oxford. The position is part of a project funded by Arcadia.
The post is a full time appointment, for a fixed term until the 31 July 2022 (to start as soon as possible).
Applicants must have a PhD/D.Phil. in Archaeology (or a related and relevant subject) or have equivalent relevant experience in the archaeology of the Middle East and North Africa. The EAMENA project uses remote sensing to document heritage places and gathers information about these in an online Arches database to help mitigating threats to the sites. The primary role of the Researcher will be the interpretation of satellite imagery and aerial photography for selected areas of the Middle East and North Africa (in particular Jordan, Palestine, and the Arabian peninsula); record creation and record enhancement for these areas using standard terminology in a specified database. A demonstrated track record working with ARCHES databases and GIS systems, including the EAMENA database and QGIS, is essential, as is familiarity with the archaeological record and satellite signatures of sites in the MENA region, in particular Jordan, Palestine, and the Arabian peninsula.
The successful applicant will be expected to be able to work independently to a high standard, and to collaborate with team members in Oxford and abroad.
Further details are available from Bill Finlayson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Additional information about the EAMENA project is available at http://eamena.arch.ox.ac.uk.
