Post-Doc : Chronometric dating using radiocarbon (Vienna)

Logo University of Vienna

The Department of Evolutionary Anthropology seeks to appoint a Senior Scientist in the field of Archaeological Science with expertise in chronometric dating using radiocarbon, in particular the radiocarbon dating of bone, but also charcoal, shell and other carbonaceous samples. The successful candidate should ideally have experience in the dating of single compounds (amino acids from bone collagen) using HPLC approaches, particularly with reference to samples of Palaeolithic age (material more than ~12-15,000 years old) from a methodological and applied point of view. The successful applicant will be part of a leading international team of researchers working across the fields of Human Evolution, Ancient DNA, Proteomics and Archaeological Science reporting to, and working with, Professor Tom Higham. The candidate will also participate in collaborative research projects and teaching courses in evolutionary anthropology.
