Join our team of world-class researchers

Our Staff and Research Environment

We are looking for students who are interested in working with our world-class researchers on cutting-edge archaeological projects that will have a positive impact on people and on the world. Students on our PhD programme are based within the Department of Humanities and Performing Arts, within the School of Creative Arts and Engineering and students will have access to our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. We also have a range of cross-disciplinary links with staff from across the University and beyond. Staff at the Centre have worked on a wide range of projects all over the world and have a broad range of expertise. Our work has received international attention in academia, in the media and from the general public. Recently, staff at the Centre received the European Archaeological Heritage Prize and an O2 Digital Innovations Award. Find out more about our staff and areas of expertise. 


Partial or fully funded PhD opportunities are advertised on this page when one becomes available. Currently, there are no opportunities available.

Aside from these PhD opportunities, staff at the Centre of Archaeology are willing to consider applications for self-funded PhDs. If you have good qualifications (at least an upper-second class degree in a relevant subject at Bachelor level, or equivalent, and – ideally – a Masters degree at merit or higher level) and would like to find out more about our highly rewarding research opportunities, please contact Professor Caroline Sturdy Colls at:
