Eligible candidates must hold an outstanding university degree (MA, MSc or equivalent) in biology/zoology or pre- or protohistoric archaeology. A fundamental requirement for qualification is the ability to collaborate in a team of researchers from different scientific disciplines.


About the position
The doctoral position will be closely associated to the sub-project B2 »Transitions of Specialized Foragers« within the Collaborative Research Centre »Scales of Transformation: Human-Environmental Interaction in Prehistoric and Archaic Societies« (SFB 1266). If successful, the PhD-candidate would graduate from Christian-Albrechts-University, Kiel. The main goal of the three years fellowship is to lead to a PhD degree.


The PhD project should address the development of Mesolithic animal exploitation and human influences on ecosystems and fauna both on local and supra-regional scale. To do this, the unique assemblage of animal remains from the site Friesack 4 (Brandenburg, Germany), with all finds already identified to species level, will be available for all necessary analyses. We invite candidates to present a project proposal including main research questions and methods allowing to answer them.
