The Technician in Archaeological Science will bring established expertise and professional skills in supporting laboratory, research and teaching needs in areas of science relevant to human bioarchaeology (human osteoarchaeology, ancient DNA, isotope analysis). Training and experience in human osteology/palaeopathology is essential and genetics/ancient DNA and stable isotope analysis is desirable. The post holder will be responsible for supporting our activities across our bioarchaeology laboratories and in particular research and training activities connected to our MSc in Human Bioarchaeology, MSc in Bioarchaeology and our proposed MSc in Forensic Archaeology and Anthropology. They will also take responsibility for the curation and management of the human skeletal collections and their documentation, managing loans and supporting visiting researcher needs. They will advise on and support research project development and project work, and assist with recruitment work centred on archaeological science programmes. They will contribute some specialist teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels and support of student dissertation and PhD projects. The postholder will take on elements of health and safety work and monitoring relating to relevant technical facilities, working closely with our existing technical support group to underpin our laboratory and field based research and teaching.
