Irish Research Council 2 year Postdoctoral Fellwoships

The Irish Research Council has just opened the 2016 call of applications for 2-year postdoctoral scholarships.

http://www.research.ie/scheme/2016-government-ireland-postdoctoral-fellowship

The call is very competitive with external peer review but with good success rate (2 out of 4 last year) it is well worth it.

I I would like to support several applicants with a strong record (including several publications in good peer reviewed journals) in the following fields:

  • Human Paleogenomics
  • Pathogen ancient DNA
  • Ancient DNA of archaeological sediments

Projects in physical anthropology/archaeology/stable isotope analysis which will have an aDNA component which may be major or minor (e.g. molecular sexing, familial relationships, admixture, affinities, etc) and in which the focus is the study of prehistoric human populations.

Deadline: 24 November 2015
