The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications to our postdoctoral fellow positions in Archaeology and the Ancient World. Exceptional junior scholars who can enhance and strengthen our commitment to inclusive education and research and to equality and social justice are encouraged to apply.
We seek candidates who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research, engaged scholarship, and cross-disciplinary thinking. We are interested in individuals whose work focuses on archaeology of the Mediterranean, Egypt, and/or surrounding regions of the Middle East and North Africa, all broadly defined, and including research focused on recent periods; we are equally interested in applications from archaeologists, whose methodological and interdisciplinary expertise clearly transcends regional specializations, and whose research complements that of existing faculty. Applicants must have normally received their doctorate within the last five years, and the Ph.D. must be in hand prior to July 1, 2023.
In addition to pursuing their research, successful candidates will be expected to teach one course per semester. Teaching may be at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; interdisciplinary offerings are desirable. Successful candidates will be expected to make substantive contributions to the ongoing development of the Joukowsky Institute, through 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 or community connections.
These will be two-year positions, with confirmation after one year, beginning on July 1, 2023.
