 The National Museum has a long tradition of research in the intersection between archaeology and the natural sciences (archaeometry) at a high international level. It is the National Museums ambition to maintain and strengthen this position by upgrading the research area with a permanent position at Full Professor level.

 

The successful applicant will be specialized within isotope-based provenance studies of people and objects from prehistoric and historical periods; i.e. the study of the provenance and mobility of past people and their objects. In addition to its very rich collections of objects, The National Museum has one of the worlds largest skeleton collections comprising human tissue from the last 10.000 years; from the Stone Age until the 18th century. This creates a unique platform for improving our understanding of human life histories which in the interaction with the material culture can significantly increase our insights into past societies and their dynamics, including reasons for cultural change. The new Professor is expected to focus on exploring the potential of the National Museums skeleton collection and the development of the archaeometric research field in collaboration with internal colleagues at the Museum as well as external researchers, nationally and internationally.
