Work/study with us


Our research group is accepting students interested in developing their Master or PhD theses in one of the research subjects the group is currently developing through its international network. For any information please contact us.

Research themes opportunities are:

1. Archaeobotany, geoarchaeology, palaeoenvironment and ethnoarchaeology of South Asia (India and Pakistan)

  • Plant macro and micro-remains (food consumption) from Neolithic/Chalcolithic sites
  • Holocene palaeoecology of hunter-gatherers and agro-pastoral groups
  • Micromorphology of archaeological sites and of sedimentary sequences
  • Anthracological analysis from Neolithic to Iron Age sites, use of wood resources and fuel

2. Palaeoecology, settlement and subsistence along the Limpopo (South Africa/Botswana)

  • Land use and resources of agriculturalists/herders
  • Ethnoarchaeology and use of space in current traditional villages

3. Archaeobotany and palaeoenvironment of the Amazon

  • Residue analysis from Pre-Columbian pottery
  • Plant micro-remains (starch/phytoliths) from dental calculus from Pre-Columbian forager populations
  • Vegetation evolution and human occupation in Brazilian forests

4. Food consumption and diet of Mesolithic and Neolithic populations of Sudan

  • Plant micro-remains (starch/phytoliths) from dental calculus, grinding stones and other artifacts

5. Modeling and Simulation

  • We are looking to fill post-doc positions on funded projects involving modelling and simulation
