  Classics and Ancient History - Postgraduate Research Opportunities
We offer promising candidates the opportunity to carry out research in a range of areas across the disciplines of Classics and Ancient History, including Ancient Near Eastern Studies and Egyptology as well as Byzantine studies, the Ottoman Empire and the study of Modern Greek.
  The palaeoenvironmental history of ancient deciduous woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, with particular emphasis on the sub-canopy layers - QUADRAT
  Dr J E Schofield, Dr G Plunket
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD studentship will apply palaeoecological techniques to investigate long-term changes in the composition and dynamics of ancient broadleaved woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, thereby producing information that will guide the conservation and restoration of these vegetation communities.
  A comprehensively analysis of microorganisms and viruses from ancient samples using minion sequencing techniques
  Prof M Marz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In current metagenomic samples we are able to assign only up to 10% of the microorganisms, most of them being bacteria. This number drops significantly when investigating additionally viruses in especially ancient samples.
  Mechanical properties of ancient earth and turf materials
  Dr C Beckett, Dr B Russell
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
This project is a novel and exciting combination of engineering and archaeology and will focus on understanding the geotechnical performance of ancient earth and turf materials.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round
More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  Ancient proteins as indicators of climatic and evolutionary change
  Dr N Boivin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Zooarchaeology by Mass Spectrometry (ZooMS) is a powerful new method that is revolutionizing the ability of archaeologists to provide insights into faunal changes through time.
  Co-estimating Human Mobility and Language Dispersal with Ancient DNA and Linguistic Data
  Dr S. Schiffels
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human mobility is a key factor for the spread of genes and languages, but it affects them in different ways. While genes spread exclusively by movements of people, cultural traits such as languages can spread independently.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  The earliest Lower Palaeolithic of the Middle Thames: Re-assessing the chronology and distribution of the high-level ancient river terraces
  Dr R Hosfield, Dr S Black
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of Britain’s earliest Palaeolithic sites are associated with estuaries and/or the lower reaches of major rivers. This distribution of sites suggests that the earliest colonisers may have been restricted to coastal habitats, with their milder micro-climates and distinctive resources.
