Post-Doc : Climate-induced human responses in the Mediterranean area (Kiel)

Logo Kiel Univ

The successful candidate will empirically explore the role of major climate hazards for past socio-environmental dynamics. Extensive existing data sets of climate and environmental change and of human activities (landuse, demographic changes, settlement and potential migration/mobility patterns) in a broad circum-Mediterranean context provide an excellent basis to empirically test such hypotheses. Namely quantitative reconstructions of precipitation, temperature and vegetation patterns shall be explored to assess the role and interdependencies of these variables in past scenarios. A multi-proxy approach shall integrate existing and new proxy data from diverse paleoclimatological and -environmental archives, as well as enabling a comparison of reconstructed and model simulated scenarios, and a comparison of climate and archaeological variables.
