Visiting Scholars in the Center for Comparative Archaeology are actively engaged in comparative archaeological research on long-term social change, pursuing projects they have designed and proposed themselves. They are postdoctoral scholars but are not necessarily recent Ph.D.'s. In addition to the comparative research they are pursuing, Visiting Scholars, in collaboration with permanent faculty members, lead an ongoing seminar on some topic or approach in comparative archaeological research.
Applications are invited for a one-year position (academic year 2019–20, pending budgetary approval) as Visiting Scholar in the Center for Comparative Archaeology. The Visiting Scholar will be engaged in archaeological research that takes a comparative approach to long-term social change. S/he will help to lead an extended seminar on comparative research in archeology involving the theme of this research. The Visiting Scholar must have completed the doctoral degree by September, 2019; inquiries from more senior scholars are also welcome. Salary competitive.
Applicants should submit, by Feb. 8, 2019, a CV, the names of three references, and a letter of application (2–3 pp.) including a discussion of the research to be pursued. Ideas related to the integration of the research theme into the ongoing seminar on comparative archeology are also welcome. Inquiries and applications by email are preferred. Applications can be sent to Robert D. Drennan, firstname.lastname@example.org (no attachments larger than 1 Mb please).
