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 postdoctoral research fellow in the field of southern African archaeological micromammal analysis. The position is for a period of three (3) years.


 


About CoE schemes and SapienCE:


The SFF programme, funded by the Research Council of Norway, gives Norway's best scientists the opportunity to establish research centres in order to reach ambitious scientific goals within a defined period. The emphasis of these centres is on excellence and long-term research goals that meet the highest international criteria.


 


 


The SapienCE Centre of Excellence (CoE), directed by Professor Christopher Henshilwood, (http://www.uib.no/personer/Christopher.Stuart.Henshilwood) will focus on the behavioural origins of Homo sapiens in southern Africa between 100,000-50,000 years ago. The core research within the CoE is led by the Leader Group comprising five Principal Investigators and the Director. Our inter-disciplinary team of scientists, at UiB and at the facilities of our international partners, will integrate high-resolution records of early human cultural, social, technological and subsistence behaviours with innovative geo-archaeological, climate and cognitive data models. This holistic approach will provide ground-breaking insight into the diverse aspects of what it means to be human.
