Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 28 Jan 2022

LArcHer is an interdisciplinary research project led by ICREA Research Professor Inés Domingo. LArcHer project aims at pioneering a new and more comprehensive way of understanding one of Europe’s most extraordinary bodies of prehistoric art, awarded Unesco World Heritage status in 1998: Levantine rock art (LRA). The ground-breaking nature of the project relies on combining a multidisciplinary (Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT) and multiscale approach (from microanalysis to landscape perspectives) to gain a holistic view ofthis art. It also aims at closing existing gaps between science and heritage mainstreams, to better understand the values and threats affecting this tradition and bring about a change in the way we understand, care, use and manage this millenary legacy.

One of the key aims of this project, is to explore major changes in global rock art using Levantine rock art as a proxy. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of rock art from different parts of the world will be conducted to answer questions of interest to this project. This research will be developed in collaboration and in parallel to other members of the project.

Responsibilities and tasks within the project.

The successful applicant will be expected to:

  • Develop a PhD thesis on rock art within the framework of the project and addressing the themes of interest to the project.
  • Participation in field and laboratory work related to the project and the research topic (database maintenance, documentation of rock art, data analysis, and others as required)
  • Data preparation for GIS as needed
  • Management tasks for the project (max. 10% of time) including writing reports, when needed

Collaboration in the preparation of results to be presented in projects and publications.
