About the project

The project will focus on Scandinavian faunal history using avian faunal material from archaeological sites, mainly in Norway. A central research task for this position will be to document, identify and interpret avian faunal remains from a number of sites across Norway, to reconstruct recent avifaunal history, as well as to elucidate the impact of climate change and humans on past bird distributions. This project builds on competence in avian osteology and paleozoology, including molecular methods such as isotope analyses and ancient DNA methods.
