The ERC Advanced Grant Biogeographic and Cultural Adaptations of Early Humans during the First Intercontinental Dispersals (BICAEHFID) Project aims to produce a global synthesis of earliest human occupation dynamics by comparing the world’s longest sequences of early archaeological sites, namely from eastern Africa and China. The objective is to understand the alternative evolutionary trajectories adopted by hominins that shared an overarching biological and cultural background, but which faced different climatic and biogeographic challenges and opportunities. A part of the BICAEHFID Project takes place at the Museum für Naturkunde. The current position will investigate changes in the ecological community structure of large mammals in Asia, and especially in China, during the Pliocene and Pleistocene.
