Priscilla Bayle was employed as a Marie Curie doctoral fellow (EVAN Training Network).

During my EVAN employment (April 2006-March 2008) as ESR at NEMU, I developed the project titled “Quantitative analyses by means of high-resolution imaging of dental maturational patterns and deciduous tissue proportions in Neanderthals and modern humans”. I defended my Ph.D., which has been co-directed since Fall 2005 by J. Braga (UNTO) and R. Macchiarelli (Univ. Poitiers and MNHN, Paris, France), on December 10th 2008 at UNTO before a scientific committee composed by L. Bondioli (Museo Nazionale L. Pigorini, Rome, Italy: examiner), J. Braga, C. Dean (University College London, UK; reviewer), R. Macchiarelli, B. Maureille (UNBX; reviewer), and G.-C. Weniger (NEMU; examiner).

During the EVAN project, three scientific papers, of which I'm the senior author, have been published in internationally rated journals in the field of paleoanthropology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA, the Journal of Human Evolution and the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. A third paper has been published in a French scientific journal: the Bulletins et Memoires de la Société d’Anthropologie de Paris. Furthermore, two study contributions to a currently in press paleoanthropological monograph coordinated by a Belgian research team on Neandertals have been co-authored with R. Macchiarelli and A. Mazurier (ERM, Poitiers). During my EVAN employment, about ten contributions have been presented at scientific meetings, three in USA, seven in France. I had the opportunity to attend six international meetings (two in USA, four in France), and six EVAN workshops (one in Austria, one in France, and four in Germany). For details, see Publications page enclosed.

A number of collaborations have been established and led to joint scientific communications or papers: (i) within the project, with J. Braga, M. Coquerelle (UNVI and UNTO), and Y. Heuzé (UHIN), and (ii) without the project, notably with I. Crevecoeur (RBINS, Bruxelles, Belgium), T. Higham (Univ. Oxford, UK), R. Macchiarelli, B. Maureille, A. Mazurier, J. Radovčić (Croatian Natural History Museum, Zagreb, Croatia), H. Rougier (California State University Northridge, Los Angeles, USA), P. Semal (RBINS), and J. van der Plicht (Groningen University, Netherlands).

Besides my principal activities, I also participated to the development of the NESPOS database by registering a number of multimedia data from French fossil specimens.

My employment within a European project funded within the Marie Curie Actions clearly played a relevant role in my hiring at the University of Nantes (France) and then, at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle of Paris, as well as in my selection for a postdoctoral grant awarded by the Fyssen Foundation to spend one year in the Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the University College London, and, since September 2010,  in my hiring as "Maître de conférences" at the University of Bordeaux (France).
