Dan Cabanes, who has worked on the Safi project for quite a few years on topics relating to Phytolith analysis, just received a new position in the Department of Anthropology at Rutgers University. Dan has informed me that he has openings for several PhD positions with a focus on “microarchaeology”.
For anyone interested in doing a PhD in microarchaeology – and in particular with focus on phytolith and FTIR analyses – I suggest you check this out. And if you know of anyone (friend, colleague, student) who might be interested, please pass this on to them.
This should be a fantastic opportunity to conduct PhD research dealing with cutting-edge issues in the interface between archaeology and science. And, no less important – Dan is a great guy and a fantastic researcher!
