Ad Astra Fellowship scheme, UCD School of Archaeology

UCD School of Archaeology is currently seeking applications for the Ad Astra Fellowship scheme - closing date, 14 February 2022.

These roles are being created in support of the 2024 University College Dublin Strategic Plan 'Rising to the Future' where UCD has set the target to increase faculty numbers by 500 over five years.

With an initial 5-year contract, research support for these 5 years, and the opportunity for an on-going contract subject to performance, there has never been a better time to join the faculty at Ireland's Global University and to live in one of Europe's most vibrant, friendly and connected capital cities.

UCD School of Archaeology is Ireland’s leading centre for archaeological education and research. Our research, teaching and public engagement programmes, supported by our "UCD School of Archaeology Strategy 2020-2024", explore aspects of the archaeology, heritages and environments of Britain and Ireland, northwest Europe, the Mediterranean, east Africa and southeast Asia. The 2020 World University Subject Rankings place us within the top 100 Schools of Archaeology worldwide and first nationally. Archaeology’s long perspective and interdisciplinary approaches allow our researchers to address the extraordinary diversity of human experience and knowledge past and present, and to tackle issues that are critical for the future. We have a thriving undergraduate, postgraduate taught, PhD and postdoctoral research community. Our globally-recognised Faculty utilize advances in digital technologies, archaeological materials analyses, and the environmental and archaeological sciences. Our School facilities, including laboratories and UCD Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Material Culture (CEAMC), support both active, experiential student learning and world-class research projects, as well as public and community engagement.
