Position Announcement: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology and the Ancient World

The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications for a post-doctoral fellow.  

While appropriate training in archaeology, anthropology, and/or art history is required, the nature of an applicant’s specific research interests, geographical and temporal specializations and areas of expertise is left open, though these should be complementary to the present makeup of the Joukowsky Institute.  Special areas of interest could include archaeological science, cultural heritage, or maritime archaeology.  

In addition to pursuing their research, the successful candidate will be expected to teach half time — i.e., one course per semester.  Teaching will be at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; interdisciplinary offerings are desirable.  Applicants must normally have received their Ph.D. from an institution other than Brown within the last five years.  The successful candidate will be expected to make substantive contributions to the ongoing development of the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, such as the organization of reading or working groups, a topical symposium, or another project intended to foster a stimulating intellectual environment in which to pursue research and to develop new interdisciplinary connections.  This will be a one-year position, beginning on July 1, 2011. 

All candidates should submit a letter of application, a list of proposed courses, and curriculum vitae by April 15, 2011.  Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted by the application deadline. Applications received by April 15, 2011 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.
