We are recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Palaeoproteomics, ideally with an emphasis on Zooarchaeology by Mass Spectrometry (ZooMS) to join the Palaeoproteomics team of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History. We seek an ambitious and highly-motivated scientist to develop and apply collagen fingerprinting-based methods to the analysis of archaeological remains. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will perform collagen extraction and purification from bones and other collagenous samples, and undertake analysis of MALDI-TOF-MS data for taxonomic classification, and LC-MS/MS data for the development of new ZooMS reference markers. Successful candidates will undertake their own cutting-edge research in ZooMS, collaborate on department and partner projects, and participate in further development of palaeoproteomics methods as part of the team. They will be expected to co-supervise students and support ZooMS training within the broader Palaeoproteomics team.
