      Apply by this date to ensure full consideration by the committee. Final date: Wednesday, Jun 30, 2021 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)
      Applications will continue to be accepted until this date, but those received after the review date will only be considered if the position has not yet been filled. Description The Primate Ecology and Molecular Anthropology (PEMA) Lab (https://www.pema-lab.com/ ) in the Anthropology Department (https://anthro.ucsc.edu/index.html ) of the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher position dedicated to the development of a strontium isotope (87Sr/86Sr) map of equatorial Africa under the direction of Dr. Vicky M. Oelze. The PEMA lab is specialized in the behavioral and stable isotope ecology of living primates, particularly African great apes, and well as the use of a variety of stable isotope systems (87Sr/86Sr, --34S, --18O, --15N, --13C, --66Zn, --56Fe, --65Cu) in archaeological science. The postdoctoral researcher will analyze -500 environmental samples (snail shell, plants, soil) from more than 40 field sites and nationwide surveys in equatorial Africa to develop the first 87Sr/86Sr isoscape map for this region, which will provide a foundation for future investigations of historic human displacement from and within Africa during the transatlantic slave trade. This new isoscape ranging from West to East Africa, with a strong representation of geological units in the West and Central African coast, will also be relevant for wildlife forensics as isotopes are increasingly used in identifying hotspots of poaching and wildlife trafficking. This project has the potential to have significant impact on the archaeology of Africa and the transatlantic slave trade, as well as for wildlife conservation. Besides experience with 87Sr/86Sr analysis involving the operation of a TIMS or ICPMS, the ideal candidate should be fluent in the programing language R, have substantial experience with mapping large datasets (GIS) and a record of scientific publications. Applicants with experience in developing large-scale isoscapes are particularly qualified for this position. Candidates with a strong research emphasis on mobility in past African societies and/or forced migration during the transatlantic slave trade are strongly encouraged to apply, even if they may not have a substantial track record in isotope analysis, but feel confident in data analysis and mapping. The successful candidate is expected to actively engage with international colleagues working on the archeology of slavery and to engage in public outreach on behalf of the project. SALARY
      Commensurate with qualifications and experience. The initial annual salary will range from $55,000 to $60,000. Minimum annual salary rates are made based on the individual's Experience Level, which is determined by the number of months of postdoctoral service at any institution. See current salary scale for Postdoctoral Titles at https://apo.ucsc.edu/compensation/salary-scales/index.html BASIC QUALIFICATIONS
      Ph.D. (or equivalent foreign degree) in disciplines for which strontium isotope geochemistry is relevant, such as archaeological science and biological anthropology, geology, geochronology, ecology as well as environmental studies. Ph.D. must be in hand at time of the initial appointment. POSITION AVAILABLE
      As soon as possible after review of all applications. The position will remain open until filled. Start date of the appointment is envisioned for spring 2021 but can be somewhat flexible in response to the challenges imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. MAXIMUM DURATION OF SERVICE IN A POSTDOCTORAL TITLE
      Postdoctoral Scholar appointments are full-time; the initial appointment is for a minimum of one year, with the possibility of reappointment. Reappointment will be contingent upon positive performance review. The total duration of an individual's postdoctoral service may not exceed five years, including postdoctoral service at any institution. Under limited circumstances, an exception to this limit may be considered, not to exceed a sixth year. APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
      Applications are accepted via the UCSC Academic Recruit online system. All documents and materials must be submitted as PDFs. Reference Requirement
      Applications must include confidential letters of recommendation* (a minimum of two are required and a maximum of three will be accepted). Please note that your references, or dossier service, will submit their confidential letters directly to the UC Recruit System. *All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. For any reference letter provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service, career center), direct the author to UCSC's confidentiality statement at http://apo.ucsc.edu/confstm.htm .

      Full consideration will be given to applications completed by March 1, 2021. Applications received after this date will be considered only if the position has not been filled.
