We offer one PhD position (AIO) in the area of protohistoric archaeology. The project, with the working title “Early and Late Medieval import ceramics in Fryslân and Groningen (400-1150 AD)” aims to produce more insight into the international network of the terp-mound dwellers in the area by means of ceramic analysis. An important secondary goal is to obtain more information on the value of these sites from the perspective of archaeological heritage management. The project aims to better understand the Early Medieval Frisian occupation of the area in relation to their Carolingian, Anglosaxon and Scandinavian neighbours.
The project also aims to gain more insight in the use of field walking as a method to study the spatial patterns of surface material. To this end several campaigns will need to be organized and supervised. The fieldwork will be a collaboration with students, amateurs and local inhabitants. It will include an open day for the general public.
As a PhD candidate, you should be committed to conducting independent and original scientific research, to report on this research in international peer-reviewed publications, presentations, and disseminating knowledge in non-academic contexts. The result should be a cumulative PhD.
