University of Cambridge - Department of Archaeology




Established in May 1979, the A. G. Leventis Foundation is the outcome of the vision of the Cypriot entrepreneur Anastasios G. Leventis (1902-1978), who laid the bases of its focus on society, education and culture.

The overall objectives of the fellowship are to strengthen research in the Late Pleistocene and Holocene archaeology of sub-Saharan Africa, and to build longer-term research collaboration with partners on the African continent. We are especially interested in candidates who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research, engaged scholarship, and cross-disciplinary thinking that combines humanistic and more science-oriented approaches to understanding aspects of the archaeology of sub-Saharan Africa. As well as pursuing their research the successful applicant will have the opportunity for some limited teaching on African archaeology and thematic courses offered by the department, and to organize reading or working groups for graduate and post-graduate researchers. They will also be expected to organise and host a two-day, international meeting on an African archaeology theme to be agreed in consultation with Professor Paul Lane.


Qualifications and Experience

The successful candidate should have an excellent first degree and a doctorate in African archaeology, or a cognate field, a proven record of accomplishment in research output and show the potential of developing a research plan that will enhance and build upon the existing areas of excellence in any of the areas listed above. Because one aim of the post is to contribute to the creation of a platform for future long-term collaborations with partners on the continent of Africa, successful candidates must demonstrate how they plan to go about this while also pursuing their research.
