Director : Rock Art Research Institute

[Emplois, bourses, prix]


South Africa has some of the world’s best known examples of rock art, spread widely throughout the country. The University has been at the forefront of finding, interpreting and carrying out research on rock art, both inside the country and internationally, for some twenty years. The Rock Art Research Institute (RARI) was established in 2000 as the flagship to take this endeavour forward. RARI today sits within the School of Geography, Archaeology and Environmental Studies. The Director reports to the Head of School.

The University invites applications for the directorship from suitably qualified persons. This will be a renewable five-year appointment, at the level of Associate Professor or Professor, according to qualifications. Applications will be considered from scholars whose research is relevant to African Rock Art studies, and who have appropriate managerial and fund-raising experience. We are seeking a Director with the vision to make the Rock Art Research Institute the centre of excellence for all African Rock Art research. He or she must have a PhD in a relevant field and a substantial record of publication in rock art. The Director is not obliged to teach at Undergraduate level, but should be engaged in research and supervision of post-graduate students. We hope to fill the position in mid-2013.

External applicants are invited to apply by registering their profile on the Wits i-Recruitment platform located at and submitting applications.

Date limite : 28 février 2013
