A 24-month postdoctoral fellowship is available at the ArchaeOBiomics laboratory at the University of Turin.

The ArchaeOBiomics Laboratory at the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology of the University of Turin (Italy) is seeking a passionate, highly motivated and well qualified postdoctoral researcher in palaeoproteomics. The post holder will work in the framework of the project “AviArch: Avifauna in Archaeoecological networks” funded by the European Research Council (Consolidator Grant). The successful candidate will develop palaeoproteomic approaches for the study of human-environment interactions in the past, with a focus on avian remains. They will be part of the supportive biomolecular archaeology group in Turin, working closely with a team of zooarchaeologists and digital archaeologists at the Universities of Copenhagen and Pisa.

Please email a brief expression of interest and CV to Beatrice Demarchi (PI) at Beatrice Demarchi (PI) all'indirizzo and Lisa Yeomans (CoI) at before the 12th of April.

One 12-months position available at Univeristy of Torino for postdoctoral or predoctoral researcher (assegno di ricerca) to work on the analysis of archeological samples by mass spectrometry.

There are no requirements on disciplinary background, but hands-on experience with mass spectrometry is essential, preferably with sample extraction and purification and data analysis for proteomics and/or metabolomics.
The successful candidate will work across two research groups at the University of Torino (Prof Beatrice Demarchi/ArchaeoBiomics at the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology & Prof Federica Dal Bello/Open Lab Mass Spectrometry at the Department of Molecular Biotechnology and Health Sciences) and will be in charge of an exciting interdisciplinarity project looking at diet and disease in Bronze Age sites (Terramare) led by prof. Claudio Cavazzuti (University of Bologna).
Training and support will be provided and opportunities for professional development within our research groups will be explored.
