If you are interested in one of these topics, you should contact the researcher in charge with an email explaining your motivation and interest in the topic and a CV in attachment before the 20th of March 2022. Please also include in cc the funding officer of ICArEHB, Godefroy Devevey (email@example.com).
If none of this topic is of immediate interest, candidates can develop a proposal that should fit our main research lines:

- Dynamics of paleolithic people in Eurasia
- The emergence and evolution of food producing societies
- Adaptation to coastal environments
- The history and evolution of the archaeological sciences
You can contact Godefroy Devevey (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly with a CV in attachment and together you will identify the ideal supervisor.
