Position Announcement: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology and the Ancient World, Brown University — Deadline April 22, 2015

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology and the Ancient World

Brown University, Providence, RI

The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications from exceptional junior scholars who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research and cross-disciplinary thinking.

We seek candidates who best augment or complement the present strengths of the Joukowsky Institute community.  We are particularly interested in individuals working in three spheres: 1) the archaeology and art of the ancient Near East; 2) the archaeology and art of Rome; 3) Late Antiquity.

In addition to pursuing their research, successful candidates will be expected to teach half time — i.e., one course per semester.  Teaching may 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 August 1, 2015.

All candidates should submit a letter of application, short descriptions of 3-4 proposed courses, and curriculum vitae by April 22, 2015.  Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference be submitted via Interfolio by the application deadline.  Applications received by April 22, 2015 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.

Please submit application materials online at apply.interfolio.com/29217.  There is no need to provide hard copies of application materials for those that have already been submitted electronically.
