Research Assistant/Associate in Computational  and Evolutionary Archaeology & 

​Key Details

A fixed-term full-time postdoctoral appointment for 30 months is available to work with the Encounter project.  The role is for a computational/evolutionary archaeologist who will collate and analyse material cultural datasets from Japanese excavation reports and assess patterns of their spatial variation, with an emphasis on the detection of marked discontinuities (i.e. cultural boundaries).  You will in particular: 1) assess the patterns of cultural connectivity during the Final Jomon period and the extent by which this can predict the tempo and the mode of the spread of Yayoi cultural elements; and 2) determine patterns of cultural trait co-occurrence during the Yayoi period in relation to the dynamics of crop dispersal inferred by other members of the ENCOUNTER team.

You will join the University of Cambridge’s McDonald Insitute for Archaeologicalical Research, an exceptionally dynamic community of internationally leading researchers, resident and visiting. Laboratories, library and other resources are world-class in quality and extent.
