Williams Fellowship in Ceramic Petrology
The Fitch Laboratory of the British School at Athens (BSA) invites applications for the post of Williams Fellow in ceramic petrology.
The Fellow will join a leading team of ceramic analysis experts and other archaeological scientists at the Fitch, as well as the vibrant BSA community and an extended network of international collaborators, to pursue research on archaeological ceramics following or adding to the Fitch Laboratory’s research agenda. The latter combines the use of scientific methods with social anthropological approaches and experimentation, having a strong archaeological focus as well as a multi-scalar landscape perspective. Beyond, their own project, the post holder will be expected to participate in ongoing laboratory projects or contribute to the development of new ones. The appointee is expected to contribute to the BSA’s teaching programme (including the Fitch’s taught courses) and undertake supervision of interns and postgraduate students. The Williams Fellow, as laboratory staff, will coordinate the use and maintenance of the laboratory facilities for ceramic petrology (e.g. microscopes, reference collections), participate in regular staff meetings and contribute to outreach activities.
Starting date: 01/10/2022, or as soon as possibly thereafter.
The appointee must have a relevant PhD (in Archaeology or Archaeological Science), or have submitted the thesis. The fellowship is for three years. The post is based in Athens, Greece, and the gross salary will be in the range of 25,000-27,500€ per annum, plus private health insurance, while additional funding will be provided for analytical costs/research & conference travel.
Closing date for receipt of applications (and references): 1 July 2022.
