POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology,  Leipzig, Germany

The newly established  Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology at the  Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig (Germany) invites  applications for post-doctoral positions in the field of physical anthropology,  palaeontology or zoology. The research track based in Leipzig will investigate  bone and tooth structures with an emphasis on the evolutionary and functional  morphology of the masticatory apparatus in primates and other mammals using  morphometric, experimental and simulative approaches.
This research track will  work in close contact with the Department of Human Evolution of the Max Planck  Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology and with the Kimmel Center for  Archaeological Science of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.
We would expect the  successful candidates to participate in research projects related to one of the  following topics:

We seek highly qualified and motivated candidates with experience in tomographic  imaging, experimental stress/strain analysis, finite element modelling, motion  analysis, material testing, microscopy, immunohistochemistry and/or geometric  morphometrics.
These positions are set  to begin as early as January 2014, and applications will be considered until  the positions are filled. The initial length of the appointments will be two  years, with an option for extension. The selected candidates should have a  Ph.D. (or be close to completion) and a significant track record of research.  The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more physically impaired  individuals and to increasing the share of women in areas where they are  underrepresented, and therefore expressly encourages applications from such  qualified individuals.
Applications including  cover letter, curriculum vitae, reprints of selected publications, a short statement  of research interests and the names of three referees should be sent to Dr Kornelius  Kupczik (kornelius_kupczik@eva.mpg.de).
