Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position to work on a project entitled: Investigating the effects of the Industrial Revolution on oral biology and health funded by the Oxford University Fell Fund. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team of archaeologists and geneticists to explore how applying a variety of analyses to ancient human dental calculus can enable a quantitative investigation of a broad suite of bacterial, dietary, and environmental factors that contribute to human health and disease.
