In this project, we have access to unique biological material from different countries that will be analysed using high-throughput, whole-genome sequencing approaches. The successful applicant will join a multi-disciplinary, international team that brings together experts from the fields of biology, archaeology and zooarchaeology. The research fellow's main task will be the comparative genomic analyses of hundreds of individually sequenced ancient genomes. These data will be interpreted in close dialog with project partners and archaeological sample providers. The ideal candidate will make a major contribution to the planned research, but may also develop her/his own complementary lines of research that reflect the candidate's own expertise and interests, and that fit within the project's main goals. This project forms a collaboration between the CEES at the University of Oslo, the Institute for Marine Research (IMR), University Museum of Bergen, University of Gothenburg, University of Cambridge and the University of Copenhagen.
