Osteoarchaeology is a subject within the department where students gain special competence in the study of archaeological skeletal finds. The unit's education is broad and students are trained in both human and animal osteoarchaeology. The unit conducts teaching and both basic and specialized research on e.g. human living conditions in the past, bioarchaeology, palaeopathology, ethics, subsistence economics, human-animal relations, fauna history and taphonomy. With the new position the Osteoarchaeological Research Laboratory aims to further deepen and broaden research and education in the study of human remains in the field of osteoarchaeology. The main responsibility involves teaching and supervision in the first, second and third cycles, research as well as administration. The teaching will mainly concern human osteoarchaeology, but the senior lecturer will be expected to also participate in teaching in zooarchaeology, taphonomy, and other fields.
