Over the last decade the University of Southampton has been undertaking commercially funded research work in all aspects of underwater archaeology. This has involved environmental assessments and the development of mitigation strategies for some of the largest coastal and offshore infrastructure projects currently being undertaken on the UK shelf.

Although the primary role of this position is to focus on extant and new commercial contract opportunities this will be done within an active research environment, the post being allied to both the Centre of Maritime Archaeology and the Geology and Geophysics group of the University.
