The successful candidate possesses excellent knowledge in the field of genome sequencing and data analysis as well as broad experience in aDNA lab work, standard molecular genetic methods, archaeological theories and archaeological fieldwork. Familiarity with setting up and managing an aDNA laboratory is advantageous.
The position will be assigned to the Johanna-Mestorf-Academy, and a major aspect of this professorship is the contribution to the interdisciplinary research environment of this academy. Close collaborations with institutes and scientists from various disciplines is explicitly expected. The professor will be involved in the supervision of PhD students and teaching of undergraduates.

At Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, for this a separate evaluation process will be performed during the second phase of the junior professorship in addition to the standard evaluation procedure for junior professors.
