Call for Candidates for Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Scholarships (Argentina)
The archaeology team of The Paleo-Ecology Laboratory (CONICET, UNCuyo, Mendoza) researches human–environment interactions in the Andes. We are looking for research fellows to work on the following specific topics:
- Isotopic ecology, subsistence chance, and spatial scales in human societies of the southern Andes (Mendoza)
- Zoo-archaeology and human subsistence in northwestern Patagonia (Neuquén): spatial and temporal variability
- Changes in the organization of lithic technology: use of lithic sources, production systems, and artifact variability (northern Mendoza)
- Volcanism y human responses (southern Mendoza)
We are also looking to reinforce more general research interests: paleo-demography (radiometric dates), mobility and migration (isotopes, human remains, obsidian geochemistry), landscape archaeology (survey and spatial analysis in GIS), paleo-diet and ecology (isotopes, flora, fauna), and agropastoral practices (ceramics, lithics, camelid osteometry, ground stone). The team comprises seven full-time CONICET researchers with complementary specialties: Víctor Durán, high-altitude environments, geo-archaeology, obsidian geochemistry; Valeria Cortegoso, lithic technology; Ramiro Barberena, stable isotopes, human biogeography; Paula Novellino, bioanthropology; Carina Llano, paleo- and modern ethnobotany; Alejandra Gasco, zoo-archaeology, camelid osteometry; Erik Marsh, ceramics, Bayesian statistics. The laboratory belongs to the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences, National University of Cuyo, Mendoza as well as the recently formed CONICET research unit, The Interdisciplinary Institute of Basic Science.
