Closing date:  12.00 midday on Monday, 24 November, 2014
This PDRA position will work on the Unifying Evolution and Domestication
using Ancient DNA (UnDEAD) project funded by the European Research Council
(ERC) under the leadership of Dr Greger Larson.
You will join a multi-disciplinary team of archaeologists and geneticists
to explore the origins of animal domestication, and the use of domestic
animals as a proxy to understand human migration. For more information
see this website:
You will focus primarily on the amplification and analysis of nuclear
and mitochondrial DNA sequences from ancient domestic animal bones and
teeth using shotgun and capture techniques.
The two major research questions you will explore will be: 
1) the admixture between Near Eastern pigs and European wild boar during
   the Neolithic, and
2) the use of domestic animals to assess the resilience and survival of
   early North Atlantic settlements.
though there is scope to persue your own research interests within the
theme of the larger project.
You will have a PhD in bioinformatics, population genomics, evolutionary
genetics, animal genomics, or a related discipline. You will have
research experience with ancient or degraded DNA and familiarity with
library preparation and handling next generation sequencing results.
This post is full-time and fixed-term for 3 years.
For informal enquiries, please contact Dr Greger Larson,
