The McDonald Institute invites applications for a full-time Research Associate in GIS and Spatial Analysis in Archaeology to work on the ERC Advanced Grant funded project: Reverse Engineering Collective Action: Complex Technologies in Stateless Societies (REVERSEACTION) led by Prof Marcos Martinón-Torres (PI).
The appointee will join a team based at the University of Cambridge, along with international collaborators, to work on the above project, which investigates the production and organisation of luxury technologies in archaeological societies without coercive authorities. The project combines science methods (geochemistry, microscopy, environmental archaeology, isotopic analyses) with social anthropology and experimentation, and has a strong research base and interest in Colombia.
We are seeking a creative individual who is familiar with the archaeology of Colombia, brings strong research skills in GIS and spatial analysis, thrives as part of a team, and is keen to contribute collectively to broader research agendas.
The post holder must have a PhD (or have submitted their thesis) and research experience in digital cartography and spatial analyses, preferably in Colombia.
They will be expected to complete tasks in accordance with a realistic timetable, take initiative in developing research approaches, and contribute to the publication of results in peer-reviewed journals in a timely manner. The role will involve research trips for collaborative research in Colombia, where they will be active participants of a rich social and academic community.
Starting date: 01/04/2023, or as soon as possibly thereafter.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
