A position as a Laboratory Research Scientist (LRS) has been created at the Ancient Genomics Lab of the Francis Crick Institute, led by Dr. Pontus Skoglund. Applications are welcome from candidates with a strong background in bioarchaeology, human osteology and/or zooarchaeology, with an interest in working in an ancient DNA laboratory. Excellent time management, organizational skills, and interest in manual skeletal sampling are required. Additional activities to skeletal sampling can include scoping for relevant material in the literature, contacting archaeologists and curators to initiate collaborations, preparing and coordinating access agreements, managing transfer, sampling, databasing, and potentially performing the first steps of DNA extraction. Ideally, the successful candidate will contribute both to the lab’s project on dog and wolf DNA, and to projects on ancient human DNA.
