The British School at Athens proposes to appoint two Non-Stipendiary Research Associates from 1st September 2022.

Each position is tenable for up to two years and is open either to UK-based researchers or to Greek-based researchers who completed a doctorate at a UK Higer Education Institute. Candidates should be in receipt of a Ph.D. at the time of taking up the award, should have been awarded their doctorate no more than five years before 1st September 2022, and should not yet have held a university position or similar post with a research component. Those wishing to have a career break taken into account may declare a period of interruption by parental leave, caring commitments, illness, or other circumstances. Candidates’ research should be concerned with any area covered by the BSA’s mission statement. Research Associates who are appointed to full-time positions at other institutions with a research component during the course of their award will be expected to resign it, so that fresh appointments may be made. These positions are non-renewable and there is no requirement to reside in Athens.

The positions are non-stipendiary but Research Associates are entitled to:

  • a £500 research allowance
  • a BSA institutional e-mail address
  • access to BSA library resources via VPN
  • a research profile on the ‘People’ page of the BSA website
  • a speaker slot in a virtual lecture as part of the Upper House seminar series
  • the opportunity to book accommodation in the BSA hostel (in Athens or at Knossos)

Applicants are required to submit a short summary of research, a CV and one letter of reference. They should also ask a referee to write on their behalf before the application closing date. The deadline for applications is 31 May 2022.
