The Centre for Early Sapiens Behaviour (SapienCE), funded by the Centre of Excellence Schemes (CoE), and based at the Department of Archaeology, History, Cultural Studies and Religion (AHKR), University of Bergen (UiB), invites applications for a position as a PhD research fellow in material culture analysis specifically related to the Middle Stone Age (MSA) in southern Africa.


About the position:

The main purpose of the PhD position is to complete a doctoral thesis, which qualifies for independent research and other forms of employment that demand specific competency. The position is for a period of three (3) years.
The applicant is expected to write a PhD dissertation related to the analysis of various categories of material culture (e.g., bone and stone tools, ostrich eggshell remains, marine shell) recovered from SapienCE MSA sites in South Africa.

The proposed project should develop innovative methods of laboratory analysis of material culture in association with our Principal Investigators (Dr. Karen van Niekerk, University of Bergen, Norway, and Professor Francesco d’Errico, University of Bordeaux).
The applicant is expected to participate in archaeological fieldwork and laboratory analyses in South Africa when pertinent to the proposed PhD project. The material culture in question is physically located in South Africa.

The applicant will actively participate in the SapienCE research group that is based at The Department of Archaeology, History, Cultural Studies and Religion in Bergen.

The duration of the PhD is 3 years. The employment period may be reduced for candidates who have previously been employed in a recruitment position at other institutions. Applicants who have already held a PhD position at the University of Bergen are not eligible for employment.
The PhD position demands that the applicant has his or her regular workplace at the University of Bergen, SapienCE CoE offices, and complies with the guidelines that apply to the position. The primary research will be done at the SapienCE offices located at the University of Bergen in Norway under the supervision of our Principal Investigators.

Additional PhD-related research and training will be conducted in South Africa and at the University of Bordeaux. SapienCE offers excellent facilities for advanced analysis of archaeological materials in Bergen, Cape Town, and at our international partner institutions.
