CNRS-PARIS
PhD in Biogeochimy applied to archaeological wood
From the working hypothesis that trees acquire a geochemical and isotope composition reflective of those of the rocks and soils they grow onto, geochemical signatures can be measured in (potentially carbonized) wood of the Notre-Dame frame and compared to those of modern trees growing on “reference” sites identified as potential supply areas for the Notre-Dame wood.

CNRS-MONTPELLIER
PhD (H/F). ERC DEMETER project. Bioarcheological history of domestic animals in the northwestern Mediterranean basin since the Neolithic period
The objective of this PhD will therefore be to trace the evolution over time, from the Neolithic period to the present day, of domestic animal species, in particular pig, sheep and goat. The morphological evolution of these species will be quantified using the tools of geometric morphometrics, applied primarily to dental remains. The work will focus on the northwestern Mediterranean basin, Catalonia and southern France.

Doctoral position : lead in monumental constructions (12th-19th c.)
The first objective of the thesis will be to carry out an archaeological inventory of lead elements used in construction from the 12th to the 19th century. The second objective of the thesis will be to gather a corpus of texts (manuscripts or edited) dealing with the supply, use and processing of lead in the studied monuments. The third objective of the thesis will focus on the archaeometric part of the project consisting in elemental and isotopic analyses on construction leads in order to characterize the different sources of lead used in construction and their evolution over time.
