Work Context

The CReAAH is a multidisciplinary research team (archeology, archaeosciences, history).
The "Coastal Archeology" team in which the person will be recruited aims to better understand the impact of climate change on coastal systems and their cultural heritage, on both sides of the Atlantic. In this context, the team has developed several research programs aimed at finding solutions to the announced destruction of part of this heritage. To do this, the team is developing an analytical approach (assessment of health status, prioritization of actions to be undertaken) as well as action research involving all institutional stakeholders (heritage managers, Ministry of Culture, coastal managers ...), academics (researchers, specialists ...) but also the public (associations, coast guards ...) in a participatory science approach (public awareness, online collaborative tools, public conferences, communication).
The recruited person can benefit from the dynamism and expertise of the team for their work and build on existing tools (as part of the ALeRT project) which should be adapted to the local context.

Additional Information

The auditions will take place (in visio) between 17th and 21st of August 2020.
