The Fellowship, funded through the Williams Fellowship Fund, is tenable at post-doctoral level. The Fellow joins 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 is expected to participate in ongoing laboratory projects or contribute to the development of new ones. Moreover, 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, coordinates the use and maintenance of the laboratory facilities for ceramic petrology (e.g. microscopes, reference collections), participates in regular staff meetings and contributes to outreach activities.
