- The Initiative for the Science of the Human Past at Harvard University and the Department of Archaeogenetics at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History are offering Max Planck Harvard Project Fellowships (f/m) in Biological Archaeology / Archaeometry and Archaeogenetics, 2017.
- The fellowship is for 5 years in Biological Archaeology, Archaeometry, and Archaeogenetics in Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The research themes include study of relevant burials of human individuals of the respective time-frame in the Eastern and Central Mediterranean from an archaeological point of view (including contextual analyses of associated objects, the context of the burial – e.g. within a settlement or necropolis etc.) and identify relevant material for scientific analysis, analysis of relevant environmental data (e.g. pollen profiles, speleothems near the relevant settlements; the new Harvard-Maine historical ice core), genetic analyses and isotope ratio analyses (Sr, O) in order to trace individual mobility and genetic homogeneity within mobile groups and local societies, genetic and pathologic/anthropologic analyses on the human remains, especially from mass burials, in order to identify the reason for the death of the individuals, exhaustive and rigorous identification and computationally-assisted philological analysis of the previously identified written sources and the even more important set of newly identified written sources that document antiquity’s great pandemics,
- correlation of the results of the scientific analyses with the archaeological analyses and with historical data from literary sources, along with the environmental data where relevant, relations between different kinds and degrees of mobility at a particular settlement and local societal transformations, e.g. changes in material culture, architecture, consumption practices etc.
