Researcher marine geosciences: offshore paleo-reconstruction Flemish seascape


Join our Research team as a geologist or geophysicist for the FWO SBO project ‘TESTEREP’ (TEsterep REconstructed for Policy making and Public engagement), which aims to reconstruct and map the evolution of part of the Flemish Seascape since c. 5000 BP.

You will perform research on the offshore paleo-geomorphological change off the Flemish coastline, in an area where once a peninsula (Testerep) was located. Within the larger project, offshore geophysical and sedimentological data will be combined with other intertidal and terrestrial geological and archaeological data to extend our spatio-temporal understanding of the evolution and demise of this former Testerep peninsula. Results of these data will be communicated to various stakeholders, including the wider public.

Researcher nearshore palaeolandscape exploration

In recent years, there has been a rapidly growing interest in the study of drowned landscapes and maritime geo-archaeology. This challenging research field integrates the study of climate and sea-level change, paleogeography, marine geology, oceanography and archaeology to study human presence and landscapes that were once located on dry land, but are now preserved in the intertidal or marine environment. VLIZ is one of the pioneers in Belgium of this challenging interdisciplinary research field, exploring the submerged landscapes of the North Sea.

The FWO SBO project TESTEREP is a 4-year scientific research project, led by the Free University of Brussels (VUB), in close collaboration with the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), KU Leuven and HoWest. This consortium brings together archaeologists, marine geoscientists, hydraulic engineers and virtual reality specialists. They will study the evolution and eventual demise of the Testerep peninsula over the past 5000 years from an archaeological, geological and hydrodynamical viewpoint. The resulting reconstructions and models will be used to raise public awareness on coastal dynamics and current threats, to stimulate blue tourism, to support heritage management, and to inspire sustainable coastal management strategies for the future. As such, the project will have a large stakeholder engagement and outreach component to it.

The main task of VLIZ in the TESTEREP project concerns the collation and analysis of existing offshore data, the collection and analysis of new geophysical and sedimentological offshore data, assisting in the development of a GIS database and providing the necessary seabed parameters for input in morphological/hydrodynamic models which will test hypothesis of the past evolution of the coastal landscape. Input will also be provided for the envisaged visualization outputs aimed at public engagement. VLIZ will also take a leading role in the stakeholder interaction and outreach component.  A close collaboration with the other project partners will be essential to the success of the project.

The Rising from the Depths Network is currently funding 29 projects across in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and Madagascar looking at the ways in which marine cultural heritage can be harnessed to bring direct benefits to local communities. The project has established a trans-boundary and cross-sector network of arts and humanities-led researchers, government officers, scientists, policy makers, UN officials, NGOs, ICT professionals and specialists working in heritage, infrastructure and the offshore industry, to identify new opportunities and methodologies for protecting and utilising the marine cultural heritage of East Africa to stimulate alternative sources of income, foster local identities, and enhance the value and impact of overseas aid in the marine sector. Information about the project can be found at: http://risingfromthedepths.com.

The University of Edinburgh is leading the network and the final year is about dissemination and making the results of the network as accessible as possible. The Rising from the Depths network is concerned with highlighting the potential of coastal and marine heritage to inform sustainable development approaches and improve the lives of local communities. As our approach is multidisciplinary, we are interested in hearing from researchers with a PhD in any related discipline including archaeology, anthropology, development studies, history, environmental sciences, digital humanities, media, law and coastal management.

The PDRA will have specific responsibility for bringing the tools and methodologies used in the funded project together to create a coherent set of policy statements on how engagement with marine cultural heritage can enhance sustainable marine development strategies. These statements will ensure the lessons learned and successful approaches created by the network can be utilised by a range of marine stakeholders from heritage professionals and national governments to local communities and industry. This will involve working with research teams in the region to help identify and create links between the projects completed and funded to date. The candidate will also assist in running dissemination events and creating online content for the Rising from the Depths website. For the latter task experience of creating web content would be an advantage.

The persons appointed will be expected to plan and conduct work in close collaboration with the project Co-Is and with project partners in the region.  They will have the opportunity to be involved in publications relating to the outputs of the project.  The person appointed will be based in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh and will be expected to work in close collaboration with our University project partners (Roehampton, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Nottingham, Ulster, York and Eduardo Mondlane in Mozambique) as well as engage with organisations part of the network (including UNESCO, The World Monuments Fund, The British Museum, the British Institute in East Africa and the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association).
