Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity

Dear Colleagues,
The following Post-Doctoral Fellowship may be of interest to you.

————————————————

Celebrating 80 years of French-Polish cooperation in archaeology, the Institut français d’archéologie orientale (IFAO) and the Polish Center of Mediterranean Archaeology, Research Center in Cairo (RC PCMA) invite applications for a 15-months Post-Doctoral Fellowship, starting 1st October 2017 until 31 December 2018.

The Post-Doctoral Fellow will organize an international two-day Seminar/Workshop on a subject in relation with Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa. The application must outline the state of the art in the proposed subject and clearly present an added value to the studies of past societies. We encourage cross-disciplinary proposals offering a wider, comparative perspective of the area under study.

The conference will take place in Cairo in late Spring 2018. Following the conference, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will be in charge of the edition of the proceedings and submit the manuscript for approval by the joint IFAO-RC PCMA editorial committee. During the entire course of the appointment, the Fellow will take part in the scientific activities of IFAO and RC PCMA and carry out his/her own research.

Please see the attached document for details.
