Funding: Irish Archaeology Field School Scholarships

The Irish Archaeology Field School are delighted to announce that Scholarships are now available for our Archaeology, Experimental Archaeology and Geoarchaeology/Environmental Science courses through the Institute for Field Research (IFR). All courses are credited. See here for details. Deadline for scholarships: March 22, 2019, at 5:00pm (Pacific Standard Time).

Our archaeology course – The Medieval Landscape of Ferrycarrig: Tracing the Anglo-Norman Invasion of Ireland, takes place from July 14 to August 10, 2019.
Our experimental archaeology course – Experimental Archaeology in Ireland: Experimental Archaeology and Materiality of The Medieval Period at Ferrycarrig, Co. Wexford, takes place from June 16 to June 29, 2019.
Both these courses are taught from the site of Carrick Castle (and settlement), Ferrycarrig, County Wexford, the southeast of Ireland. This internationally important archaeological monument is the site of the first Norman Castle in Ireland, constructed in 1169. The site is located within the stunning confines of the Irish National Heritage Park, a 40 acre parkland featuring the largest open air museum in Ireland.

Our 2 weeks and 4 weeks geoarchaeology/environmental science course – Geoarchaeology/ Environmental Science in Ireland: The Environmental and Cultural Heritage of the Irish Landscape, administered by our parent company The Irish Heritage School, takes place from July 14 to August 10, 2019 (4 weeks) and August 11 to August 24, 2019 (2 weeks).
These courses uniquely combine field studies with laboratory work to piece together three different landscapes in three distinct locations: Birr, in the midlands; the Burren in County Clare on the West coast; and Clare Island, County Mayo in the Atlantic Ocean (4 wks); The Curragh, County Kildare (2 wks).

We are confident that our courses will appeal to students from a wide range of disciplines – including archaeology, history, anthropology, medieval studies, geology, environmental science, geography, Irish studies etc. – or indeed just students looking for a unique study abroad experience in general. Courses will include third level students of all ages and nationalities. Several cultural trips are provided as part of each course. Together with the option of staying with local families in homestay accommodation, these trips ensure a deeply enriching cultural immersion, guaranteeing students a truly memorable experience.

Fellowships: Bard Graduate Center

The fellowship programs at Bard Graduate Center are designed to further the institution’s goal of promoting research in the areas of decorative arts, design history, and material culture—what we call the “cultural history of the material world.” We offer a number of fellowship opportunities for researchers working in these and allied areas. We are currently accepting applications for two types of fellowships, see below for details. For questions, please contact fellowships@bgc.bard.edu.

Research Fellowships

Bard Graduate Center invites scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds with a PhD or equivalent professional experience to apply for funded research fellowships, to be held during the 2019–20 academic year. The theme for this period is “Whose story?” Applicants are asked to address in a cover letter how their projected work will bear on this question. The fellowships are intended to fund collections-based research at Bard Graduate Center or elsewhere in New York, as well as writing or reading projects in which being part of our dynamic research environment is intellectually valuable. Eligible disciplines and fields of study include—but are not limited to—art history, architecture and design history, economic and cultural history, history of technology, philosophy, anthropology, and archaeology. Applications due November 1, 2018.

PRESIDENT’S POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

THE PROGRAM. The University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program was established in 1984 to encourage outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at the University of California. The current program offers postdoctoral research fellowships and faculty mentoring to outstanding scholars in all fields whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and equal opportunity at the University of California. The contributions to diversity may include public service towards increasing equitable access in fields where women and minorities are underrepresented. In some fields, the contributions may include research focusing on underserved populations or understanding inequalities related to race, gender, disability or LGBT. The program is seeking applicants with the potential to bring to their academic and research careers the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of members of groups historically underrepresented in higher education in the United States.

AWARDS AND APPOINTMENTS. Fellowships are awarded for research conducted at any one of the University of California’s ten campuses. The award includes a salary starting at approximately $49,200 depending on field and experience, benefits including health insurance and paid vacation/sick leave, and up to $5,000 for research-related and program travel expenses. Each award is for a minimum of 12-months and may be renewable for an additional term upon demonstration of academic/research productivity.

ELIGIBILITY. Applicants must receive a Ph.D. from an accredited university before the start of their fellowship. Successful applicants must present documents demonstrating that they are legally authorized to work in the United States. Individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are encouraged to apply.
