The ERC CoG project “Animals Make Identities” (AMI) at the University of Helsinki runs from 2020–2025 and is directed by Dr. Kristiina Mannermaa. AMI seeks to understand links between hunter-gatherers and animals and reconstruct life histories of humans, animals and artefacts based on burial finds from North-East Europe.
The task of the PhD candidate is to investigate the diet of humans from Yuzhniy Oleniy Ostrov (Lake One-ga, Russia) using high-resolution sequential stable isotopic δ15N and δ13C measurements on tooth den-tine. The work will include sampling archaeological teeth for analysis, method development and analysis work at the isotope laboratory, data reduction and management, interpreting the results and writing a thesis for a degree of PhD in archaeology at the University of Helsinki.
