Position Announcement: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Critical Cultural Heritage, Brown University

Brown University’s Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology and Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World invite applications for an International Postdoctoral Fellowship in Critical Cultural Heritage. This position is to be held jointly with the Cogut Institute for the Humanities for a term of two years beginning in July 2018. We seek exceptional junior scholars who augment or complement the present strengths and diversity of our communities at Brown University, and who enhance our commitment to inclusive education and research.

We are particularly interested in archaeologists, anthropologists, or museum practitioners, who approach cultural heritage as an interdisciplinary field devoted to the many dimensions of cultural heritage, in particular as material, intangible, emotional, and intellectual. We wish to encourage engagements with cultural and material heritage that challenge dominant nationalist and other ideological frameworks and incorporate the active participation of local communities and marginalized peoples in heritage discourses and representations. We can also envision teaching, advising and research that from a critical perspective on cultural heritage explore topics such as: authenticity, identity, ideology, ownership, commodification, culture and conflict, trauma and memorialization, indigenous rights, and hybridity and cosmopolitanism.

Applicants will have received a Ph.D. within the past five (5) years from an institution other than Brown in the fields of Anthropology, Archaeology, Museum Studies, or Cultural Studies. The fellow will teach two courses each year (which will be cross-listed in the Cogut Institute’s Humanities course offerings). The fellow will also be affiliated with the Cogut Institute and is expected to participate in the weekly Tuesday seminars, as well as other activities of the Institute. Fellows will receive a stipend of $61,500, with an increase to $63,907 the second year, plus benefits and a research budget of $2,000 per year.

All candidates should submit a letter of application, short descriptions (150-300 words) of 3-4 proposed courses, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by February 12, 2018.  Applications received by February 12, 2018 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/48147.  There is no need to provide hard copies of application materials for those that have already been submitted electronically.
