The Department of Archaeology at the University of York is ranked 20th in the world and 5th in the UK in the QS rankings. We are based in both the King’s Manor in the heart of the historic city of York and at Heslington West campus. Our vibrant international community consists of over 100 staff and over 600 students.
We carry out international, impact-oriented and interdisciplinary teaching and research of the highest quality through our strong network of partnerships. The student experience is of paramount importance to the Department and we maintain a high level of student satisfaction.
Equality, diversity and inclusion are at our core and we promote a collegial environment in which staff and students feel supported and valued. We are proud of our Athena Swan Bronze Award and strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, flourish, and excel.
You will be responsible for the design and delivery of modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in our programmes across the suite of BSc/BA degrees and a range of taught postgraduate programmes including our MA Cultural Heritage Management, MA Museum Studies (new for 2023) and MSc in Digital Heritage. These programmes attract a vibrant mix of UK and international students, experienced practitioners and graduate entrants from around the world.
The outward-facing and vocational aspects of the Department’s Cultural Heritage, Museum Studies and Digital portfolio in relation to practice-based teaching, hands-on and experiential learning will be an important focus of this role. You will also provide general support in marking student assessments and pastoral and academic supervision.
