The courses are likely to include modules on British prehistory, Scottish archaeology, archaeological fieldwork and archaeological practice.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in Archaeology or a related field. An educational and research background in field archaeology and Scottish or British prehistory is particularly desirable. Ideally, candidates will have experience of undergraduate teaching and have the ability to respond enthusiastically and positively to students.
