Ph.D. Candidate position | University of Bordeaux

Ph.D. Candidate position in Facial Skeleton Variation, Adaptation, and Evolution

  • Unit: PACEA “De la Préhistoire à l’Actuel: Culture, Environnement et Anthropologie”, UMR5199
  • Institution: University of Bordeaux, France
  • Job Type: Ph.D. candidate
  • Application Due Date: May 29th 2019

  • The unit PACEA “De la Préhistoire à l’Actuel: Culture, Environnement et Anthropologie” - UMR5199 at the University of Bordeaux is seeking applications for a Ph.D. candidate to join a collaborative research project investigating the variation, adaptation, and evolution of the nasal cavity, nasal airways, and paranasal sinuses in humans and animal models. The ideal candidate for this position should have studied biology, gross anatomy, and (human) evolution. Experience with (micro)CT imaging, processing, and analysis, morphometrics and multivariate statistics, software packages such as Avizo, R, and coding is a plus. The anticipated start date for the position is October 1st 2019 but is negotiable. Qualified candidates must hold a Master or B.Sc. or equivalent. Please direct questions to Yann Heuzé (yann.heuze [at] u-bordeaux.fr).

    Candidate selection is carried out in three stages:


    Admissibility: Evaluated on the basis of the provided 2-page CV and 2-page cover letter ( see here ) by the future Ph.D. supervisor, approval by the graduate school staff.


    Eligibility: Selection of 2 admissible candidates on the basis of reference letters and individual interviews (videoconference) with the supervisor, approval by the graduate school staff.


    Admission: The two eligible candidates will participate to the competitive examination held by the doctoral school ED304 Sciences et Environnements, Université de Bordeaux. For additional information, see here. This competitive examination to recruit Ph.D. candidates ends with interviews and a ranking of the selected applicants. See here for a timeline. The best of the two eligible candidates, if ranked in the top of the awardees, will then enroll in the doctoral program in the autumn. The salary of the enrolled Ph.D. candidate will be paid through a fellowship of the University of Bordeaux.


    Before applying, please refer and read carefully the sections “thesis opportunities” and “Future Ph.D. candidate” of the doctoral school website.


    Scientist Position In Archaelogical Science | Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology Leipzig, Germany

    The Department of Human Evolution at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig (Germany), invites applications for a research position in isotopic studies. The Department of Human Evolution conducts palaeoanthropological research within a multidisciplinary environment involving groups of scientists including biological anthropologists, Palaeolithic archaeologists, archaeological scientists, and geochronologists. Isotope mass spectrometry forms a significant component of the archaeological sciences group with a well-equipped laboratory and a PicoTrace clean lab. More information about the Department of Human Evolution and the associated labs can be found on our web site.


    We are seeking a researcher to conduct their own project using isotope techniques in the broader context of Pleistocene human evolution. This includes sample collection, analysis, methodological development, and publication. We are particularly interested in candidates working on non-traditional and/or radiogenic isotopes with experience in MC-ICP-MS. We expect the candidate to be able to operate the MC-ICP-MS Neptune and, ideally, the laser ablation system.


    This research position may begin immediately and is for two years. No extensions are possible after the 1st of November 2021. Joint or partial appointments will be considered if the appointment is based mainly in Leipzig. The Max Planck Society is committed to diversity and inclusion and therefore expressly encourages applications from qualified individuals from underrepresented backgrounds.


    Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, reprints of selected publications, a short statement of research interests, and the names of three referees. Please hand in all of these documents together during the application process. The search for these positions will continue until a successful candidate has been selected.


    For further information please contact Prof. Jean-Jacques Hublin (hublin[at]eva.mpg.de) .
