  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.
  Developing innovative statistical and population genetic tools for detecting molecular signatures of natural selection using ancient DNA
  Dr R Tobler
Applications accepted all year round
Data from the Aboriginal Heritage Project and other ancient DNA studies will provide an unprecedented opportunity to build the first detailed spatiotemporal portrait of human genetic adaptation through time.
  Can current AI reasoning mechanisms be used to model ancient geometric reasoning, illustrating Immanuel Kant’s ideas about mathematical knowledge?
  Prof A Jung, Prof A Sloman
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This project is supervised by a theoretical computer scientist (Jung) and a philosopher of mathematics who has worked in AI and Cognitive Science (Sloman).
  Deep learning algorithms for evolutionary inferences from contemporary and ancient DNA data
  Dr M Fumagalli, Prof X Hong
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
One of the most elusive questions in evolutionary biology is to what extent adaptation has shaped genomes of extant species and populations.
  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.
  Fossiliferous Amber as a Portal into Ancient Greenhouse Ecosystems of Southern Australia: the Paleogene Gondwana Connection
  Mr J Stilwell
Applications accepted all year round
A PhD position is available to work with Associate Professor Jeffrey Stilwell at Monash University, School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment, in Melbourne, Australia in collaboration with national and international palaeontologists.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Productivity crises in past and future oceans: what ancient crises tell us about future threats to marine ecosystems
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The world’s oceans and their ecosystems are under threat from anthropogenic activities that are interacting to produce complex changes like never before.
  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.
