Jochim's research, carried out in southern Germany since 1980, has focused on changes in land use and subsistence at the end of the last ice age and the beginning of the postglacial period. Fieldwork has aimed at supplementing an archaeological record dominated by cave sites with excavated open-air sites and regional surveys.
