ESR15 Fellowship: “Historic pottery in the Aegean. Materials and techniques, quantitative style analysis, full-scale reproduction”

Fellowship title and id. code:    Marie Curie Early-Stage Research Fellow – THETIS–ESR15

Fellowship description:    Historic pottery in the Aegean. Materials and techniques, quantitative style analysis, full-scale reproduction. The research focuses on the study of specific pottery types from 9th to 4th cent BC from major ceramic production centres i.e. Attica, Euboea, Corinth and the Cyclades with the aim to identify/introduce criteria of standardisation, both geographic and temporal, in pottery production in the Aegean. Other topics of interest include style migration, division of labour, and manufacturing practices, all in relation to local availability of raw materials. The first stage of the work will be based on data from the archive of THETIS, collected during the past ten years in view of the reproduction of original artefacts for the Greek Archaeological Service. This 3yrs research work will provide training for the fellow at non-destructive ion beam analytical facilities and will lead to a PhD award.

Requirements:   Applicants for the Early Stage Researcher (the doctoral) fellowship must possess an MSc related to archaeological materials, conservation or archaeological materials science. Specialisation on ancient ceramic materials and techniques or practical experience in pottery will be taken into account.
