POSTDOCTORAL POSITION - DOMESTICATION EFFECTS ON BITING PERFORMANCE IN RATS

The Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig (Germany) invites applications for a post-doctoral position to work on a collaborative project to study the effect of domestication on bite force performance and skull and muscle anatomy in rats.

We are seeking a highly qualified and motivated candidate with experience in in vivo bite force measurements, anatomical dissection, muscle physiology, microscopy, histology, immunohistochemistry, CT imaging and/or geometric morphometrics.

This position is set to begin as soon as 1 November 2014, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. The initial length of the appointment will be one year, with an option for extension. The selected candidate should have a Ph.D. (or be close to completion) in a relevant area and a significant track record of research. The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more physically impaired individuals and to increasing the share of women in areas where they are underrepresented, and therefore expressly encourages applications from such qualified individuals.

Applications including cover letter, curriculum vitae, reprints of selected publications, a short statement of research interests and the names of at least two referees should be sent as a single PDF document to Dr Kornelius Kupczik (kupczik@[>>> Please remove the brackets! <<<]eva.mpg.de).

OTHER CARREER OPPORTUNITIES

Currently there are no other active positions available at the Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology. However, we are always interested in innovative and like-minded research enquires from highly qualified individuals (Masters or PhD). These should be directed in the form of a CV and detailed research proposal to franziska_pfab@eva.mpg.de.

-PLEASE NOTE- We will not consider or respond to unspecific bulk email proposals.
