Tel Aviv University announces Archaeology Post-Doc Positions through its Nadler Institute of Archaeology.

The Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology, Tel Aviv University, will appoint two post-doctoral scholars for 2016-2017 academic year in the fields of Archaeology, Ancient Israel Studies, or Ancient Near Eastern Cultures.

The highly competitive fellowships are offered to researchers across many disciplines, and will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence.

Applicants should have received their Ph.D. in a relevant field within the last three years from an institution other than Tel Aviv University. While appropriate training in archaeology, biblical studies, ancient Near Eastern cultures and/or biblical history is required, the nature of an applicant’s specific research interests and areas of expertise is open.

Successful candidates are expected to make substantive contributions to the ongoing development of the Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology by organizing a colloquium on a subject to be decided at the beginning of the academic year that will stimulate an intellectual environment in which research and new interdisciplinary
connections are pursued and developed.

In addition to engaging in their own research, the successful candidates will be expected to teach one two-hour graduate level seminar during one of the two semesters (interdisciplinary themes are desirable).

The fellowship period will begin October 1, 2016, and is for a period of one academic year. The appointment carries an NIS 80,000 (= approximately $20,000) stipend for each candidate.

Applicants are requested to submit a cover letter, a CV, a detailed statement of current research interests (up to 2000 words), and two letters of reference (to be submitted directly by the referees). In addition, post-doctoral fellows must state if they are applying for other sources of funding for the fellowship period.

The scientific committee includes Prof. Oded Lipschits, Prof. Israel Finkelstein, Prof. Ran Barkai, Dr. Erez Ben Yosef, Dr. Guy Stiebel, Dr. Yuval Gadot, Dr. Dafna Langgut and
Prof. Yoram Cohen.
