Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology, Brown University – Deadline April 1, 2013

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology
Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World


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

We invite applications in four spheres, looking particularly for original and innovative work in:

1) the archaeology and art of the Late Antique and Islamic worlds;
2) environmental archaeology;
3) visual culture of the ancient world;
4) the material culture of the Brown University campus and of Providence, RI.

Other fields that complement the present strengths of the Joukowsky Institute community will also be considered.

In addition to pursuing their research, successful candidates 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.  Successful candidates 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, with the possibility of a one-year renewal, beginning on July 1, 2013.

All candidates should submit a letter of application, a list and brief description of proposed courses, and curriculum vitae by April 1, 2013.  Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted by the application deadline. Applications received by April 1, 2013 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.
