The Paleolithic Technology Laboratory of the Emory University Department of Anthropology is seeking a post-doctoral researcher to conduct research on a new interdisciplinary project investigating the neural and behavioral substrates of stone tool-making skill acquisition. Primary responsibilities will include recruiting and training research subjects to make stone tools, documenting the training process, analyzing lithic products, and contributing to the publication and presentation of results. Candidates must have a PhD in Archaeology, Anthropology, or related discipline and the ability to effectively teach Lower Paleolithic (e.g. “late Acheulean,” proportional bifaces) tool-making methods.

The position begins in August 2014 with a term of one year and will be renewable for a second year pending budgetary approval.
