Post-Doc : Radiocarbon dating and project database development (Oxford)

Logo Oxford University

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) to join the Human-Environment Relationships in pre-Columbian Amazonia (HERCA) project, to be based at the University of Oxford. The position is jointly funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), and is led by Frank Mayle (Co-PI, University of Reading), Eduardo G. Neves (Co-PI, University of São Paulo) and Christopher Ramsey (Co-I University of Oxford).
The HERCA project is focussing on the relationship between humans and environment in Amazonia during the pre-Columbian period. The first main role of the PDRA will be to work on developing the chronologies for the sites in the study through the application of radiocarbon dating. The other key element of the post is the development of the broader project database supporting the project aims more generally. A demonstrated track record of publications relating to chronological methods is desirable, as is experience working with large datasets. Experience in radiocarbon dating and database management are desirable but not essential.
