postgraduate opportunities in archaeology

saving you the trouble because every day counts

How to use this …

Why I started out with this blog format is because I wanted:

-to list opportunities by closing date;

-to update posts on a day-to-day basis, if new opportunities were added (that’s the feed you can subscribe to and helps to progress the blog in search engine rankings);

-the homepage to be searchable a collection of all opportunities (that saves me the trouble of making opportunities unavailable in a database). In other words, you can use the Find function (ctrl F) on the homepage to search for phrases, e.g. “Roman”, “Bronze Age”, etc. and find relevant positions in all of the entries with live jobs.

I’m still thinking of an easy way to show additional information (i.e. when I posted a job), but perhaps that’s not a priority (enough). [update 9 May 2012: I’ve started listing new jobs in bold with the date of posting on this blog. I’m thinking of keeping these in bold for a week, then change them to normal font, but leaving the post date.]

    Hello, this site is such a great idea! May I ask how I can forward to you an announcement for a new EU-funded Innovative Training Network on premodern plasters and ceramics that has announced and will announce in total 15 Early Stage Researcher (doctoral) fellowships in Cyprus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Greece and the UK? I would be most grateful if the announcement could be posted on your site. Many thanks. This is the project’s website:

    Hi! Could you please post this call as well? Thank you for such a useful tool!

    Thank you, but I have already listed it on the current postdoc opportunities page.

    Could you please post the following two job postings? The University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada, about 100km west of Toronto) is conducting two cluster hires (10 open-rank TT positions each) in Indigenous Excellence and Black Excellence. Applicants must self-identify as Indigenous and/or Black respectively. Review of applications begins Oct. 18, but will continue until positions are filled. Departmental affiliation is open, but we would love to have anthropologists and archaeologists apply.

    Dear Erik,
    Thanks for this amazing website which I unhesitatingly use for conferences/events and even postdoc opportunities when I had completed my PhD. Now, I am an Assistant Professor in the Archaeological Sciences Centre at the Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar in India and am establishing my own lab in Archaeozoology/palaeoproteomics and stable isotope analysis. I will be extremely grateful to you if you could feature my advertisement for a postdoc on your website. You can find the advertisement here- under the heading ‘Project title: Paleoproteomics and Stable Isotope Analyses of Archaeofaunal Remains’.
    Thank you!

    Thank you. I had copied it from the Archaeology Postdocs facebook group this weekend and listed it on the Postdoc opportunities in archaeology page.
