logo Australian National University

A PhD Scholarship is offered by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, which is to conduct archaeological and palaeoenvironmental research in Australia and/or the Wallacean islands to the north of Australia.
Our goal is to tell the epic story of Australia's rich and distinctive natural and human history by revolutionising our knowledge of the events and processes that have shaped this nation and combining that knowledge with cutting-edge modelling techniques to manage and protect our natural and cultural resources into the future.
To achieve this ambitious goal, we are seeking enthusiastic and talented PhD students to join our team. The successful applicant will have a background in one or more of the following areas of study including palaeoecology, palynology, isotope geochemistry, geochronology, palaeoclimatology or genetics/ancient DNA.
The candidate will have the opportunity to work on one of the key palaeo-sites located within Australia, New Guinea and Timor-Leste as part of a broader goal to understand the mode, direction and drivers of change that have shaped the landscapes of our region through time.
