3) PHD POSITION ‘LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT AND TRADE-OFFS BETWEEN CULTURAL HERITAGE, BIODIVERSITY AND LANDSCAPE FUNCTIONS’
This PhD will investigate changing human-environment interactions through time and how these impact on landscape management. Landscapes in Europe are valued for their cultural values, reflected in landscape elements such as hedgerows, stonewalls and the overall structure of the landscape. However, in the urbanizing societies of Europe tradeoffs occur between conservation of cultural heritage and novel functions and uses of landscape, i.e., for generating renewable energy. The ESR will identify in which areas of Europe such tradeoffs occur by using spatial analysis and modelling of future scenarios of landscape development. Novel management strategies for navigating these tradeoffs will be proposed and evaluated.

project “Religious competition in Late Antiquity: A Laboratory of New Categories, Taxonomies and Methods”
2 Doctoral positions (100%) in Ancient History
(with a focus on the history of ancient religions)
Topics of the PhD dissertations
1. The first PhD dissertation will focus on the construction of the notion of “liturgy” in the Greek and Latin sources of Late Antiquity. Among the questions relevant to this topic are: How did Christian liturgy gain a new meaning in the context of religious competition between pagans, Jews, and Christian? And consequently, how did religious competition influence the construction of discourses and rituals in a given city or province of the Empire?
2. The second PhD dissertation will examine the use of religious classifications in the writings of Late antique historians (in particular Eusebius of Caesarea, Ammianus Marcellinus, Sozomen, Theodoretus of Cyrus, Socrates of Constantinople, Zosimus). The aim is to clarify how these authors developed classifications for religious practises in the Roman world.

1) PhD fellowship in human population and quantitative genetics
Inferring patterns of natural selection and complex trait evolution using ancient DNA. Research topics can include: 1) Utilizing trait-association data from metabolic, neurological and anthropometric studies to learn about the evolution of complex traits in ancient genomes from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age; 2) Developing methods to detect genes under positive selection when working with multiple populations related to each other in complex ways; 3) Searching for functional variants that were positively selected in humans over time during major cultural transitions, like the advent of agriculture; 4) Testing among different models of evolution on trait-associated variants over time.

2) PhD fellowship in population genetics and human evolution
We are particularly interested in ancient human evolution, and in modeling the joint history of Neanderthals, Denisovans and modern humans over time. Research topics can include: 1) Modeling spatio-temporal patterns of Neanderthal and Denisovan introgression across the world; 2) Characterizing adaptively important genes introduced into the human gene pool via archaic adaptive introgression, and their implications for the prevalence of diseases in ancient and modern times; 3) Searching for signals of admixture from unsampled deeply-splitting populations in the genomes of modern and archaic hominins.
