Become a Steering Committee member

We are looking for four RMA students, and one PhD student from the UvA, who would like to join the Archon Steering Committee. The Steering Committee supports the Archon Office in developing its educational programme. It meets three times a year to discuss event proposals and other activities. These meetings will take place in October, February and May.

The main goal of the Archon steering committee is to brainstorm and come up with inspiring and innovative RMA and PhD education as well as inspiring workshops and conferences to be attended by all members. In addition a task of the Steering Committee is to review event proposals sent by RMA and PhD members as well as staff members of the various universities. Additionally, the steering committee helps Archon think about and set up ways to improve intra-university scientific collaboration and synthesis between academic and non-academic archaeology.

Besides having the opportunity to help determine Archon’s educational program, being part of the steering committtee is good for your network and looks great on your resume!
