Dear all, I would like to offer a 12 months post-doctoral position within a labex BCDiv funded project entitled “Experimental Domestication: for new morphometric markers of the domestication process in Archaeology”.
This project is housed in the Bioarchaeology lab (UMR 7209) at the Natural History Museum of Paris. The post-doctorate project will focus on investigating the impact of captivity on skull development of an ungulate model: the wild boar (Sus scrofa). The role of the post doctorate : • Perform the segmentation of skulls and mandibles of 200 specimens based on existing DICOM data • Design a 3D Geometric Morphometric protocol for ontogenetic series of skulls and mandibles • Perform trajectory, co-variation, and modularity analyses based on the 3D shape data sets. • Write a scientific paper for high profile journal At the Lab, the post-doctorate will work with the PI (Thomas Cucchi), a PhD student (Hugo Harbers) focusing on the appendicular skeleton and three other Co-Is (Anthony Herrel, Vincent Debat and Raphael Cornette), all specialists in their field of expertise (Biomechanics, Development and Morphometrics). General requirements and skills: • Good knowledge of 3D image analyses and segmentation (Avizo, Geomagic, Meshlab) • Good knowledge of 3D GMM approaches • Good scientific writing skills Available to start 1st June 2018. The successful candidate will be employed by the CNRS with a full time position for the duration of one year. Salary indication € 36.000,- gross per year, depending on experience.
