Post-Doctoral Visiting Asst. Professorship in Dept. of Egyptology and Ancient Western Asian Studies – Brown University

Deadline: February 28, 2012

The Department of Egyptology and Ancient Western Asian Studies at Brown University invites applications for a post-doctoral visiting assistant professorship in Assyriology, Egyptology, or the material culture of Egypt or Ancient Western Asia. Candidates whose research interests complement those of current faculty are particularly encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will be appointed for one year beginning on 1 July 2012. Post-doctoral visiting assistant professors are expected to pursue their own research and publications and are required to teach one course per semester at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Visiting assistant professors are also expected to participate in the academic life of the department: for example, by involvement in research seminars and counseling graduate students in their research.

Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of three referees, and a letter of application detailing their research and teaching interests and explaining how they would fit into the department. Candidates should have received their PhD from an institution other than Brown University within the last five years. Applications should preferably be submitted electronically as PDFs by email before 28 February 2012.

Brown is an EEO/AA employer. Minorities and women are encouraged to apply.
