This Research Associate will play an instrumental role in HIDDEN FRONTIERS, a NERC-funded project which aims to understand the history of agriculture, crop replacement and plant adaptation in the circum-Alpine region from the Neolithic to the Iron Age. The project brings together experts in archaeobotany, palaeogenomics and palaeoenvironmental/palaeoclimatic modelling to investigate how specific crops and wider agricultural systems responded to cultural and environmental changes. This postdoc is designed to develop a diverse career profile for a researcher with a bioinformatics background. The successful candidate will have knowledge of bioinformatic software and experience of analysing genome-wide datasets, preferably ancient DNA datasets, and will be eager to be trained in ancient DNA laboratory methods. The candidate will partake in all steps of the project, helping build a unique profile to pursue a wide range of future opportunities.
