The McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research invites applications for 2 x fixed-term Research Assistants in technical GIS, Remote Sensing, and data processing. The post holders will be employed on the Mapping Archaeological Heritage in South Asia (MAHSA) project. This project aims to identify and document endangered archaeological heritage sites across the Indus River Basin and surrounding regions of Pakistan and northwest India using a combination of remote sensing, machine learning, historical map analysis, records-based research and selective archaeological surveys. The main duties of the roles will involve a range of technical and data management tasks that will facilitate the use of historical maps, GIS, remote sensing, machine learning, and data from ground survey to map archaeological and other heritage sites across Pakistan and northwest India. The roles will also involve preparing data for entry into an Open Access database. Additional duties are likely to include engaging in the identification of archaeological sites and monuments through the use of remote sensing and map analyses; desk-based research on existing sites; and assisting with ground-based verification fieldwork.
