Post-Doc : Tropical palaeoecology and environmental reconstruction (Newcastle)

Logo Northumbria University

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in tropical palaeoecology and environmental reconstruction. The successful candidate will generate new pollen, phytolith and charcoal data from Belize to investigate past environmental change and landscape modification as part of the AHRC-NSF funded project ‘Maya Archaeology Palaeoecology Partnership Project’. The aim of the project is to understand how ancient Maya societies responded to past climate change using a combination of palaeoenvironmental and archaeological approaches. The candidate will work closely alongside project investigators at University of Nottingham and University of Exeter, and US partners at Baylor University and Northern Arizona University.
The ideal candidate will have experience in tropical palaeoecology, with expertise in one or more of palynology, phytolith, or charcoal analytical techniques. Candidates will be expected to disseminate research findings in peer-reviewed publications and international conferences. Applicants must hold a PhD degree (or close to completion) in Geosciences, Physical Geography, Environmental Archaeology, Quaternary Sciences or related discipline.
