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) .
