Logo University of Leicester

The School of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester, is seeking to appoint a Senior Research Associate (Digital Archaeology) to undertake a key research and management role for the Endangered Archaeology of the Middle East and North Africa (EAMENA) Project. The overall project is a collaboration between the Universities of Oxford, Durham and Leicester, searching for and recording significant archaeological sites in the Middle East and North Africa (from Mauretania to Iran), using satellite imagery and aerial photography, in order to aid understanding for their future protection and management.
You will lead on the further development of an Automated Change Detection (ACD) system for use by the project team in satellite image analysis, building on a prototype. Using open access satellite imagery and Google Earth Engine, this will increase our local partners’ ability to monitor quickly key sites (such as World Heritage Sites) or zones with particularly rich archaeological or architectural sites.
