The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mediterranean Archaeology. 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 research, are particularly encouraged to apply.
We seek candidates who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research and cross-disciplinary thinking. We are interested in individuals whose work focuses on any aspect of or time period in ancient Mediterranean archaeology not covered by the Institute’s faculty, and who have significant fieldwork experience in that region.
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, 2017.
All candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, short descriptions (150-300 words) of 3-4 proposed courses, and contact information for three references by March 1, 2017. Applications received by March 1, 2017 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/40190. There is no need to provide hard copies of application materials for those that have already been submitted electronically.

About Brown University's Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World
The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World is dedicated to the academic study and public promotion of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and the Near East; our principal research interests lie in the complex societies of the pre-modern era.
Although the core efforts of the Joukowsky Institute are archaeological in nature and are located within this b...roadly defined zone, close ties with all individuals interested in the ancient world, and with archaeologists of all parts of the globe, are welcome and actively encouraged.
The goal of the Institute is to foster an interdisciplinary community of interest in the archaeology of the ancient world, and in the discipline of archaeology more generally. Its mandate is to promote research, fieldwork, teaching, and public outreach, with the Institute’s associated faculty, students, and facilities serving as a hub for this activity.
Established in 2004, the Joukowsky Institute incorporates and amplifies the activities of Brown University’s former Center for Old World Archaeology and Art.
