The Centro Nacional de Investigación sobre la Evolución Humana (CENIEH) seeks a researcher with an excellent track record of at least 10 years in trapped-charge dating, with specialism in ESR-US (electron spin resonance combined with uranium series) for direct dating of fossils. A research profile combining methodological studies and the application of numerical dating in geoarchaeological contexts is sought. The results of the research should contribute to pinning down the chronology of archaeopaleontological sites, especially ones from the Pleistocene, by developing and applying ESR and uranium series methods to fossil teeth and optically bleached quartz grains. The candidate's scientific activity should be transversal in the field of geochronology, and it should interact with the different lines of research of the program, such as ESR, uranium series, luminescence, cosmogenic nuclides, and/or paleomagnetism.
