Cognitive Archaeology Research Fellow
CENIEH is seeking a Research Fellow in Cognitive Archaeology for applying to the current Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions-Individual Fellowships call (HORIZON-MSCA-2023-PF-01) which closes on 13 September 2023
The Fellow with the successful proposal will join a team of researchers in the Archaeology Program at CENIEH. The main research focus of the program is field and laboratory investigations on the origin and evolution of lithic technology during the Pleistocene. The candidate will be involved in field and laboratory investigations with international scientists working at Gona (Afar, Ethiopia) and Ain Hanech (Algeria), to study lithic technological changes through time, particularly for understanding hominin behaviour and cognition. The major role of the candidate should involve lithic technological studies by describing and replicating stone tool assemblages, and by employing cognitive methods for understanding the different stages in the evolution of stone tool technologies seen in human behavioural evolution during the Pleistocene. The candidate will develop his investigations in collaboration with colleagues in the Archaeology Program in the newly established state of the art laboratory of experimental Archaeology and Taphonomy at CENIEH.
