Brown University, Providence, R.I., now is accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship for its Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World.
Junior scholars with a commitment to inclusive education and research, equality, and social justice are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a background of demonstrating a capacity for innovative research, engaged scholarship, and cross-disciplinary thinking.
Applicants can specialize in any region or time period and should have significant fieldwork experience. Of particular interest are applicants working on environmental aspects of the ancient world in the broadest sense of the term and including human relationships to these, on topics such as landscape, climate change, pastoralism, and agriculture.
They must have received their doctorate from an institution other than Brown within the last five years, and the PhD must be in hand prior to July 1, 2022.
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 and 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.
This is a two-year position, with confirmation after one year, beginning on July 1, 2022.
All candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, short descriptions of 3 to 4 proposed courses (150 to 300 words each), a statement (150 to 300 words) of their experience, ideas for prioritizing diversity and inclusion in their teaching and research, and contact information for three references by February 15, 2022. Applications received by February 15, 2022 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.
