The Department of Prehistory and Archaeology at the University of Granada (Spain), welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA-PF) in 2024 in the field of Late Antique Archaeology.

Applicants would collaborate with the CAUAT (Cultura del agua urbana en la antigüedad tardía = Urban Water Culture in Late Antiquity) project, which focuses on the various social, political, religious and economic roles water (and its associated infrastructure) played in the late antique city. In this sense, while the project is mostly archaeological, it draws necessarily from written and epigraphic sources too, while also working from innovative theoretical premises, such as environmental psychology and Place Theory. The project includes in its study the broader Mediterranean Basin (from Iberia to the Levant) between the fourth and eighth centuries, thus covering the evolution of a common Roman starting point to various regional responses which include continuity, rupture, and adaptation. This project covers many aspects pertaining to Roman urbanism, late antique local administration, early Christian spaces, changes in bathing habits, and many other aspects of daily life in the later Roman Empire, the early Byzantine period, the post-Roman successor kingdoms, and the early Umayyad caliphate.

The project also includes the chance to participate in the EAA-MYA (Estudio de los Acueductos de Anfípolis/Μελέτη Υδραγωγείων Αμφίπολης) field survey campaigns at Amphipolis (Greece).

Any application within the field of late antique archaeology or history focused on water use, management, supply, and cultural significance will be welcome.
