We are seeking a Research Fellow for the Creative Adaptive Solutions for the Treescapes Of Rivers (CASTOR) project to work with Dr Hannah O’Regan in the Department of Classics and Archaeology, University Park Campus, University of Nottingham.

The CASTOR project is highly interdisciplinary and is funded by Natural Environment Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council under the Future of UK Treescapes Programme (NERC grant NE/V021117/1). The project is being led by Dr Matthew Dennis (University of Manchester).

The successful candidate will be contributing to Work Package 1 – Building better baselines, by identifying the extent and impact of anthropogenic landscapes from the Neolithic – medieval periods in key regions of northern England. This will involve collating and analysing geospatial datasets alongside archaeological, archaeozoological and archaeo/palaeobotanical data. In doing so, we will establish the likely local palaeoenvironmental parameters for these key regions through time and will work closely with other members of the CASTOR team, particularly at the Universities of Leeds and Manchester to feed these data into the broader CASTOR models. The Nottingham PDRA will also contribute to project dissemination, including (but not limited to) conference presentations, publications and public events.

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent experience in Environmental Archaeology, Landscape Archaeology, Quaternary palaeoecology or similar, and knowledge of GIS/ geospatial analyses.

This is a full-time, fixed-term 24 month post. Closing date Nov 25th 2021. Starting Jan 1st 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.
