OFFER DESCRIPTION

Project descriptions

LArcHer is an interdisciplinary research project led by ICREA Research Professor Inés Domingo. LArcHer project aims at pioneering a new and more comprehensive way of understanding one of Europe’s most extraordinary bodies of prehistoric art, awarded Unesco World Heritage status in 1998: Levantine rock art (LRA). The ground-breaking nature of the project relies on combining a multidisciplinary (Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT) and multiscale approach (from microanalysis to landscape perspectives) to gain a holistic view of this art. It also aims at closing existing gaps between science and heritage mainstreams, to better understand the values and threats affecting this tradition and bring about a change in the way we understand, care, use and manage this millenary legacy.

One of the key aims of this project, is to redefine Levantine rock art through a new multidisciplinary and multi-scale approach. In this part of the project, and related to this particular position, the idea is to combine fieldwork (surveys, excavations and study of particular rock art sites) with traditional approaches to rock art using qualitative and quantitative analysis (statistical analysis) with the use of digital recording techniques (graphic recording and digital databases) and GIS. This research will be developed in collaboration and in parallel to other experimental approaches conducted by other members of the project.

Responsibilities and tasks within the project: the successful applicant will be expected to:

  • Develop a PhD thesis focusing on the study of Levantine rock art.
  • Participate in the different fieldwork campaigns related with the study of Levantine rock art and the archaeological context (including excavations, surveys and site specific recording).
  • Participate in the different in Lab activities necessary to conduct research on this particular rock art traditions (including use and maintenance of databases, digital recording of rock art, statistical analysis of data, qualitative analysis (stylistic analysis), and others as necessary).
  • Preparation of data for GIS analysis
  • Participate in GIS interpretation.
  • Management tasks for LArcHer project (max. 10% of the time) including drafting applications for permits and formal reports, among others).
  • Prepare and present the achieved results in international and national conferences and publications.

Other duties as required.
