Changing animal use in prehistoric western Asia: zooarchaeological investigations
The Institute of Archaeology, UCL, invites applications for a NERC-funded research studentship, for three years, to enable a postgraduate student to receive training in research methods and to undertake a programme of research that will lead to the submission of a thesis and the award of a PhD.
The UCL Institute of Archaeology has access to prehistoric animal bone assemblages/datasets from areas of western Asia including northern Iraq and central Anatolia, key areas for exploring changing human-animal relations in the late Pleistocene/early Holocene.
A PhD student will be expected to undertake original zooarchaeological analyses to critically examine existing models of animal procurement and treatment during important periods of change in human-animal relations.
This studentship covers tuition fees and provides a termly maintenance grant (stipend) in accordance with NERC standards.
