Full Time – Two-year fixed-term Italian Contract
Salary: From €28,000 gross per annum depending on experience
Thanks to the generous historic and ongoing support of BSR Archaeology by Mr Peter J. Smith, the advertised post will be named the ‘Peter J. Smith Fellow in Archaeology’.
The British School at Rome (BSR) — the largest of the British International Research Institutes — is a centre of interdisciplinary research excellence in the Mediterranean supporting the full range of arts, humanities, and social sciences. It creates an environment for work of international standing and impact from Britain and the Commonwealth, and a bridge into the intellectual and cultural heart of Rome and Italy.
We are seeking to appoint a Fellow in Archaeology to play a vital role in the delivery of the BSR’s Research Strategy in Archaeology. Applicants must hold a doctorate and must have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the UK’s Higher Education and research environment. This is a residential role: a key responsibility of the role will be to support the community of Award Holders (AH) and residents of the School, providing them with appropriate pastoral care.
The position is for a fixed-term period of two years, with a possible extension for a third year.
The post-holder will be provided with a one-bedroom flat at the BSR, and all residential living costs will be covered including all meals provided. The post-holder will be enrolled in the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) pension scheme. Further details about the USS and the latest employee contribution rates may be found here: https://www.uss.co.uk.

Two academic referees should be asked to submit letters of reference to the same address by the closing date for applications.
