postgraduate opportunities in archaeology

saving you the trouble because every day counts


Are you looking for a PhD or postdoc position in archaeology? Me, too. Systematically looking for positions, I have come across so many opportunities in so many different places that I’m curious how many there actually are. In this blog I’ll list the opportunities I come across, starting with a pretty simple format: a few blog entries, one each for PhD positions & programmes, postdoc positions & programmes, as well as other academic positions in archaeology, which I’ll update regularly. With each update, I’ll change the date of a blog entry and leave newly listed jobs in bold for a week (so if you’re checking this site once a week, you only have to look at the jobs in bold).

Hope this is helpful.

    This literally helped me find my PhD and I still use it to find conferences and plan to use it to find a postdoc and further positions in my career as time goes on. Thank you so much for keeping this site updated, you are doing wonderful work!!!

    Hi everyone, hi Erik von Rossenberg! Your blog is really helpful, thank you very much! I was constantly checking it through when searching for a postdoc position. Maybe you can also add this to your section dedicated to conferences and training: . It is a useful training opportunity for readers interested in paleoanthropological and paleoanthological heritage. Thanks a lot for the effort!
