Position Announcement: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology, Brown University (Deadline April 10, 2016)

The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications from exceptional junior scholars who augment or complement the present strengths and diversity of the Joukowsky Institute community, and who enhance our commitment to inclusive education and outreach.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research and cross-disciplinary thinking.  We are particularly, though not exclusively, interested in individuals whose work focuses in one or more of these five spheres: 1) archaeological perspectives on diversity and inclusion; 2) environmental studies; 3) public archaeology; 4) digital archaeology; 5) 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 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, 2016.

All candidates should submit a letter of application, short descriptions of 3-4 proposed courses, and curriculum vitae by April 10, 2016. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference be submitted via Interfolio by the application deadline.  Applications received by April 10, 2016 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/34219.  There is no need to provide hard copies of application materials for those that have already been submitted electronically.
