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.

Please submit application materials online at

Call for Applications: Getty Summer Research Academy: Encounters in World Art History

Call for applications – Summer Research Academy – Getty Research Institute    

Los Angeles, California
August 9-September 7, 2012  

Hosted by  
The Getty Research Institute  

Organized by
The International Consortium on Art History and the Chaire de Recherche du Canada en histoire de l’art de l’Université de Montréal    

Call for Applications
From Art History Doctoral Students
Studying in Africa, Asia, and Latin America    

Art history is rapidly being reconceptualized to meet new social, political, and aesthetic demands. Essential contributions to this efflorescence will come from junior scholars in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, whose research questions, methods, and objects of study may be informed by the intellectual, linguistic, and political context of their practice. This first Summer Research Academy seeks 8 doctoral students from those regions to research and dialogue with 8 junior and 8 senior scholars from the International Consortium on Art History.  

The theme for the 2012 Summer Research Academy is Encounters. We seek submissions that address artistic and art historical encounters, such as the staging of encounters, the work of art as a product of encounters, and the reception of artworks resulting from encounters. The topic will be explored using library resources and special collections at the Getty Research Institute, as well as collections at the Getty Museum.
