Issued: Mon, 08 Oct 2018 14:14:00 BST

Thinking about doing a PhD in Archaeology and want support in producing a proposal that will be competitive for funding?

Archaeology at Glasgow is inviting applications for a PhD Proposal Competition and Workshop. We are looking for candidates with excellent first degrees and cutting edge research ideas, who will enrich and complement Glasgow’s vibrant and diverse research community.

Our fieldwork and research projects cover periods from the Mesolithic to the Modern era and extend from the North Atlantic to Iraq, with foci in Scotland and the wider UK, Medieval Europe, the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. We approach the past and its present from a range of theoretical and thematic perspectives, with research expertise in digital archaeology, landscape archaeology, engagement, and material culture.  Most of all, we like to be challenged by our research students!
