PhD OPPORTUNITIES: The IN-AFRICA Project welcomes applications from graduate students interested in developing their PhD as part of the project. Research questions in a wide range of fields are being considered – from human morphology, to archaeology, to palaeontology, to palaeoenvironmental sciences. Potential areas for research can be found at: PhD Opportunities. Students who join the project will receive support for fieldwork, funding for associated analyses, and access to original fossil and prehistoric remains to be studied. Interested students should contact Dr Marta Mirazon Lahr or Prof. Robert Foley before applying to the Department of Archaeology & Anthropology, University of Cambridge; please send a CV and short statement (not more than 2 pages) with an idea for a research project that would contribute to the understanding of the origins, history and adaptation of modern human populations in Africa.
