We offer one PhD position (AIO) in the area of high-resolution dating, making use of existing and new 14C dates and statistical modelling. As a PhD candidate, you should be committed to conducting independent and original scientific research, to report on this research in international peer-reviewed publications, presentations, and disseminating knowledge in non-academic contexts. The result should be a cumulative PhD.
The PhD project is part of a Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) project that focuses on the start and development of animal husbandry in the Dutch wetlands – a case study area of continental importance thanks to its high-quality preservation and fine grained stratigraphy. The larger project also encompasses a PhD on the aDNA of the livestock and a postdoc on the diet and mobility of these same animals. This PhD project aims to provide a high-resolution framework. It does so making use of existing and new 14C dates and Bayesian modeling of these dates taking into account the available site stratigraphies.
The PhD will be trained and supervised jointly by GIA researchers Dr J.H.M. Peeters (hunter-gatherer archaeology), Prof. D.C.M. Raemaekers (Neolithic archaeology) and Dr M. Dee (Centre for Isotope Research, University of Groningen).
