The Koç University Mustafa V. Koç Maritime Archeology Research Center (KUDAR) and Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) joint fellowship will support two post-doctoral scholars specializing in Maritime Archeology or a closely-related topic for the 2019–2020 nine-month academic year (September 15th to June 15th).
The successful applicant is required to reside in Istanbul during the fellowship period, to devote his or her time to a proposed research project, and to deliver two lectures on their original research.
Established in honor of Mustafa V. Koç, the Koç University Maritime Archeology Research Center (KUDAR) supports and promotes Turkish and international scholars conducting high-impact research on maritime archeology, history, ethnography, heritage management, artifact conservation, and other practices concerned with the relationship between society and the sea. The center prioritizes research in the Social Sciences, primarily Archeology, but also Anthropology, Human Geography, and similar disciplines. The center may also encompass efforts that include the applied and natural sciences, such as Oceanography or Marine Biology, provided such research generates high-impact results that contribute to the center’s overall focus.
