St Kilda is a Unesco World Heritage site
An archaeologist is being sought for a post on the remote archipelago of St Kilda.
The National Trust for Scotland, which owns the islands, said it was a rare opportunity to work at a Unesco World Heritage site.
The post-holder will be based in Inverness and on St Kilda.
St Kilda was dubbed Britain's Lost World by a BBC One TV special in 2008. The islands lie about 41 miles (66km) off the Western Isles.
A day was dedicated to St Kilda last August - 79 years after its final inhabitants abandoned the islands.
St Kilda Day - Latha Hiort - was organised by the Gaelic Arts Agency, with funding from Homecoming Scotland.
The project was launched as a follow-up to the 2007 St Kilda Opera, which was staged across Europe.
The last St Kildans left on 29 August 1930 because life on the islands had become too difficult.
