We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to join the Leverhulme Trust funded project ‘Quantifying the mosaic: testing modern analogues for African palaeoenvironments’. The team consists of two postdocs, and Dr Hannah O’Regan (PI) and Dr David Wilkinson (both LJMU).
