PhD #1 – Visualising the Crucible of Shetland’s Broch Building (AHRC-funded SCHC CDP studentship)
This PhD is a collaborative doctoral partnership with Historic Environment Scotland and Shetland Amenity Trust. The project will compare three major multi-phase Broch sites on Shetland (Mousa, Old Scatness and Jarlshof) reviewing original excavation archives and records associated with site monitoring, while capturing new 3D site/ landscape data (3D laser scans, photogrammetry). As a CDP Student you qualify for an additional £550 stipend payment per year. You will have an archaeology qualification, with a demonstrable interest in the archaeology of the Northern Isles and knowledge/ experience in 3D digital documentation practice in archaeology.

PhD #2 – Seismic mapping (linked to ERC-funded Europe’s Lost Frontiers project)
This PhD will involve the mapping and characterisation of the landscape of Doggerland. You will investigate the process of interpreting seismic geophysics of the North Sea bed and enabling it to be used as part of a series of computer simulations that will explore its floral, faunal and human inhabitants. You will have experience of either geophysics or large-scale mapping, ideally both. You will also have an archaeology qualification, ideally with some emphasis on prehistory.

PhD #3 – Computer simulation (linked to ERC-funded Europe’s Lost Frontiers project)
This PhD will involve using seismic, environmental and sedimentary DNA data within computer simulations of the landscape of Doggerland. This will focus on the natural resources available to hunter-gatherer communities and the processes involved with the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition.
You will have some experience of computer programming and either archaeology or anthropology.
