Underwater Archaeology and Maritime History jobs


Post Doc Fellow in Coastal Archaeology

Posted in Uncategorized by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on December 27, 2012

In the past millenniums the European coasts appear as attractive areas for the human communities. From early Prehistory up to present days, these communities interacted with the environment, and significantly contributed to shape the landscapes. Nowadays, sea level rise and coastal erosion, combined with human pressure threaten the natural and cultural heritage of the coasts, especially the archaeological remains. The ARVOR project aims at an integrated study of these coastal cultural landscapes, and more precisely:

1. A diachronic analysis of the coastal human past occupations as an illustration of environmental evolution and coastline changes through several case study areas distributed in the Brittany region: Quiberon peninsula and Belle-Île, Hoedic and Houat islands (Morbihan), Léon region (northern Finistère), and baie de Lannion et îles du Trégor (Côtes
d’Armor).
2. The development of research tools for the management and valorisation of the cultural heritage i.e. analysis of the vulnerability of the coastal heritage, valorisation and dissemination of the results at regional, national and international levels.

To this aim, the OSUR coastal team seeks applications to a post-doctoral position, in this
interdisciplinary project.
