Post-Doc : Paleoecology and climatology (Leiden)


The Island(er)s at the Helm project is looking for a Postdoctoral candidate in Paleoecology & Climatology, in the work package “Resilient past communities and traditional knowledge practices”. The postdoc will carry out paleo-ecological investigations (through analyses of sediment cores) in coastal and mangrove areas, which will provide records of past vegetation and coastal (marine) ecosystem changes that identify shifts in their health status and functioning through time (in relation to climate change and human habitation). The combined relation between environmental changes and density, type, and structure of archaeological sites will provide insights into temporal dynamics and resilience (i.e., time of return to pre-impact conditions or adaptations) of coastal ecosystems and associated resources vital for human survival.
