PhD programmes

This entry includes PhD programmes in humanities and social sciences that may be of interest for those looking for a PhD position in archaeology. Generally, positions on these programmes are advertised once (or twice) a year and require a research project proposal. As a consequence, closing dates are not as tight as PhD positions on specified topics. In addition to PhD programmes, open calls for application to PhD positions in humanities and social sciences that require a research project proposal are also listed here.

Closing date not specified (ordered by post date)

1) PhD position in Prehistoric Archaeology – Egypt
Project A1 “Out of Africa – Late Pleistocene Rock Shelter Stratigraphies and Palaeoenvironments in Northeast Africa”
The PhD topic centers on geo-archaeological investigations and complex data analyses. In this research the local level (Eastern Desert of Egypt, where final field work is planned), should be compared and modelled together with the regional level (Northeast Africa) in order to obtain a better idea of the land use strategies and the potential corridors used by early Homo sapiens.
