IEMA Post-doctoral Scholar Position 2012-2013, University at Buffalo

The University at Buffalo seeks a Post-doctoral Scholar (PS) for its interdisciplinary Institute for European and Mediterranean Archaeology (IEMA).  

During a 10 month tenure, the PS teaches one graduate seminar (preferably on the topic of the symposium), organizes a symposium, and edits a subsequent volume reflecting IEMA’s focus on post-Pleistocene European and Mediterranean anthropological and classical archaeology.  Symposium focus is open, but should stress contemporary theory, topics of broad current interest, and be inclusive of the Institute’s broader geographic/temporal foci.

The PS receives stipend and benefits. US and international archaeologists with Ph.D. by August, 2012 in Anthropology, Classics, Archaeology or related disciplines are encouraged to apply. 

Application letter, vitae, list of references, and 3-page description of proposed symposium topic, including intended invitees, must be received by February 15, 2012 for an August 2012 start, pending final budgetary approval.

Email application or inquiries to the director, Dr. Peter F. Biehl: <>.

The University at Buffalo is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

ATT New Media Winter Fellowships for Brown Students – Deadline 11/8

The Watson Institute announces AT&T New Media fellowships of up to $1,500 for the winter break during December 2010 and January 2011. The fellowships are intended for Brown University students to pursue innovative international projects during the break that address global policy issues or critical needs in society – and to document their experiences with new media on the Global Conversation website. Details are available here. The deadline is November 8, 2010.

Separately, the Institute is offering to loan Flip video cameras to Brown students who have other international winter break plans already in place, to document their experiences on the Global Conversation website. The producer of the best short video will get to keep the Flip camera he or she made it with, in a Global Conversation Video Competition judged on social value, technical merit, and creativity. To enter, students must send an email to summarizing their international winter break plans in 250 words or less. Up to 25 Flip cameras will be loaned based on merit, on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. To win, a video must be 6 minutes or under and be posted to the Global Conversation’s Vimeo page with a title and descriptive summary by February 1, 2011.

The AT&T New Media Fellows Winter Program and Global Conversation Video Competition are intended to focus on international issues and global social change. By using new media, students will illustrate innovative ideas and approaches to critical challenges and produce highly visible results that will, in turn, help to promote and inspire international social entrepreneurship and citizen engagement on campus and beyond.

The fellowships and competition are made possible through generous grants from the AT&T Foundation and AT&T Corp. The first round of AT&T Media Fellowships was granted for the summer of 2010 and fellows’ work is documented on the Global Conversation website and in an article on last summer’s AT&T New Media Fellows here.
