"UCL’s Anthropology Department has been awarded three social anthropology PhD studentships under the Leverhulme’s Resilience funding programme for a multidisciplinary project entitled Hunter-gatherers’ resilience : Past, present and future adaptations to a world in transition to begin in October 2011
These three PhD studentships in Social Anthropology will collect key socio-cultural data on three hunter-gatherer groups, two Pygmy groups in Central Africa and one Negrito group in the Philippines under the principle supervision of Dr Jerome Lewis (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/anthropology/staff/j_lewis). Researchers will be expected to conduct long-term fieldwork and language learning among one particular group of Philippino or African hunter-gatherers while collecting detailed socio-cultural data with a focus on language, music, taboo, myth, cosmology, ritual and religious practice, oral history and relations with neighbouring groups. The candidate will also be expected to work in close collaboration with the 6 other PhD students and 4 post-doctoral researchers in the group to build a multi-disciplinary cross-cultural databank on hunter-gatherer’s points of resilience for understanding and supporting their future survival.
Suitably qualified candidates holding at least a good 2.1 degree or Masters in Anthropology, Ethnomusicology or other relevant social science discipline may apply. It is desirable that candidates have a broad background in Anthropology, and an interest in biological, genetic and evolutionary approaches to Anthropology."
