An AHRC-funded PhD studentship is available at the Institute for three years full-time study, from 1 July 2012 (Ref:1248439). The deadline for applications is 17 May 2012.

The studentship is part of the AHRC Research Project Grant awarded to Thilo Rehren for research into 'The Rise of Metallurgy in Eurasia: evolution, organisation and consumption of early metals in the Balkans'.

The studentship will include exploration of the conventional argument for a pyrotechnological association of pottery firing with early metal smelting.

Only applications of the highest quality are funded and the range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
