The University of Puget Sound invites applications for the Lora Bryning Redford Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Archaeology starting in Fall 2016.

This is a nonrenewable one-year position.


The Redford Fellow will be expected to teach one undergraduate course per term: an introduction to archaeology course in the fall and an advanced course of his/her own choosing in the spring.  The Fellow will also deliver at least one public lecture each term, and will serve as a resource on campus for those interested in archaeology; this may include advising students, identifying summer excavations or field schools in which to participate, or finding graduate programs that meet the students' interests.  The Fellow will be assigned to an appropriate department (e.g. Art and Art History, Classics, History, Religious Studies, Sociology and Anthropology), where faculty will assist with mentoring and professional development.


We invite applications from scholars who have completed a Ph.D. in archaeology within the last three years. The successful candidate will have expertise and experience in the Mediterranean world, broadly defined geographically and chronologically (e.g. from the Bronze Age to the Ottoman Empire). We seek scholars who are able to make connections across disciplines and demonstrate the impact of archaeological work on a variety of fields in an undergraduate liberal arts setting.
