  • Eligibility requirement:
  • The School of Humanities at Canterbury Christ Church University is pleased to announce an exciting fully funded full-time PhD Studentship in collaboration with Historic Scotland (to become Historic Environment Scotland in October 2015) for admission in October 2015. The project requires strong GIS skills and ideally previous experience working with aerial imagery, preferably in an archaeology/heritage context. These skills will be further developed throughout the course of the project, including the post-processing of raw (xyz) LiDAR data, the creation of enhanced visualisations, and the development of expertise in 3D analyst and spatial analyst tools. Familiarity with the Scottish National Monuments Record (i.e. the CANMORE database) is desirable, as is previous experience and/or a strong interest in Roman frontiers, the Antonine Wall, multi-period landscape archaeology, or heritage management. In addition to desktop-based processing and research, the project will require field visits to ground-truth identified features, and to liaise with local experts and heritage community groups in Scotland. This will provide the candidate with opportunities to carry out field and geophysical surveys, as appropriate. The successful candidate will also be given considerable teaching experience and support, with a requirement to teach a minimum of 25 hours per academic year in years 2 and 3 of the project. Applications are welcome from candidates of any nationality, however the Studentship will only cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate. Candidates with previous degrees in Archaeology, Computer Science, Geography, Heritage, or History are particularly welcome.
