School of Archaeology, 1-2 South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3TG
Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 per annum
The School of Archaeology is seeking to appoint two Postdoctoral Research Assistants to join the European Research Council-funded project ‘Exploring the dynamics and causes of prehistoric land use change in the cradle of European farming (EXPLO, No. 810586’). EXPLO is a collaboration between the University of Oxford, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Bern, running from 2019 to 2024. The successful applicants will work with Professor Amy Bogaard and Professor Mike Charles.
There are two positions available and both are full-time appointments, for a fixed term of 24 months and are available from June 2021.
Applicants must have a PhD in archaeobotany or be nearing completion, and have excellent knowledge and experience of a range of techniques in the recovery, identification and analysis of diverse archaeobotanical remains. The primary role of each PDRA will be to conduct primary archaeobotanical analysis of new assemblages from the EXPLO project. A demonstrated track record of research in archaeobotany is essential, as is experience of contributing to academic publications. Experience of working on waterlogged assemblages is desirable but not essential.
The successful applicant will be expected to be able to work independently to publish research of an international standard, and to collaborate with team members in Oxford and abroad.
Further details are available from email@example.com
