Post-Doc : Tropical palaeolimnology and environmental reconstruction (Nottingham)

Logo University of Nottingham

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate/fellow in tropical palaeolimnology and environmental reconstruction 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 successful candidate will generate geochemical (including stable isotope) and palaeoecological (e.g. diatoms and pigment) data from Belize to investigate past environmental change, including climatic variability, catchment erosion and lake eutrophication. The candidate will work closely alongside project investigators at Northumbria University and the University of Exeter in the UK, and US partners at Baylor University and Northern Arizona University. The ideal candidate will have experience in tropical palaeolimnology, with expertise in one or more of inorganic geochemistry, stable isotope analysis, diatom analysis, pigment analysis.
