The Department of Archaeology is delighted to be offering excellent funding opportunities for exceptional researchers across a range of subjects in the area of Archaeology. We are offering: • Up to two highly prestigious AHRC Doctoral Awards (open to UK/EU students only): all tuition fees paid for three years. UK students will also receive an annual maintenance grant for three years, which we expect to be £13,590 per year. Research in the Archaeology Department covers human origins through to the recent past, and is characterised by theoretically informed field-based approaches and a strong commitment to methodological innovation. Our staff and research students work in Britain, mainland Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America, and in the last research Assessment Exercise (2008) we were ranked second in the UK for World Leading and Internationally Excellent Research in Archaeology (based on the amount of 3* and 4* research).
Successful applicants normally have a good first degree (at least 2.1 or international equivalent) in Archaeology or related discipline, and a Masters degree at Merit level or international equivalent, in Archaeology. If English is not your native language then you will also need to satisfy our English language entry requirements
Application Deadline is 31st January 2012
