The position will be primarily hosted in the Geo-Biosphere Interactions working group within the University of Tübingen. The project is nested within the Leibniz Science Campus “Geogenomic Archaeology Campus Tübingen” (GACT). GACT brings together experts from the fields of archaeology, genetics, geosciences, ecology, and microbiology to examine the evolutionary relationship between humans and ecosystem biodiversity through the multidisciplinary analysis of sedimentary cave archives containing ancient DNA. Your tasks: Develop and conduct experiments that test the effect of phosphorous and other elements on the mobility of (ancient) DNA in cave sediments; Apply stable and radioactive isotopes combined with geochemical analysis; Work with trace amounts of radioactive phosphorous within state-of-the-art radionuclide facilities; Analysis and interpretation of geoarchaeological samples from Pleistocene cave deposits.
