Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology and the Ancient World

Brown University, Providence, RI

The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Archaeology and the Ancient World.  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, engaged scholarship, and cross-disciplinary thinking.  We are interested in individuals whose work focuses on any aspect of or time period in Mediterranean archaeology, 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 doctorate from an institution other than Brown within the last five years, and the Ph.D. must be in hand prior to July 1, 2018.  Successful candidates will be expected to make substantive contributions to the ongoing development of the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, 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.  This will be a one-year position, with the possibility of a one-year renewal, beginning on July 1, 2018.

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