Doctoral training for future paleoanthropologists
For scientists studying ancient history and heritage, palaeoproteomics is the most promising technology for the analysis of sets of proteins from objects and tissues far older than 0.7 million years. It enables the reconstruction of materials through surviving molecules and identification of species from fragments of morphologically unidentifiable items. However, this field needs highly educated specialists with an interdisciplinary background of analytical chemistry, bioinformatics, palaeontology and archaeology. The EU-funded PUSHH project offers an interdisciplinary, research-based doctoral training for paleoanthropologists, palaeontologists and archaeologists who will become future leading experts in analysis of ancient proteins from paleoanthropological, palaeontological and archaeological materials. They will then promote research and development activities, formulate goals, develop applications and transfer research related skills.
