OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Department of Classical Archaeology at the Faculty of Cultural and Historical Studies invites applications for a post-doc position within a research project funded by the FWF (project lead: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Günther Schörner, M.A.).

Your task is the participation in a research project dealing with urban-rural relations on the Iberian Peninsula in Roman times (DACh project I 5032). The research focuses on the two cities of Mirobriga (today Portugal) and Regina Turdulorum (prov. Badajoz, Spain). Your tasks can be more precisely assigned to two areas:
• General evaluation and contextual examination of pottery found within the project, especially the surveys, as the main category of material culture to be detected. Specifically, studies on the typology, chronology and use of ceramics from urban and rural contexts are to be carried out.
• Preparing fieldwork activities, in particular assisting in obtaining permissions from the relevant authorities and maintaining contacts with local research institutions and landowners.
In addition, significant participation in the GIS-based evaluation of spatial data is expected.
There is the possibility of writing an independent scientific monograph or at least taking an important step towards writing such a monograph (‘habilitation’).
