posted Feb 02, 2019
 

The Cornell Institute of Archaeology and Material Studies (CIAMS) ( https://archaeology.cornell.edu/ ) invites applications for a two-year Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate in Archaeology position, starting in Fall 2019. We invite applications from scholars who have completed the Ph.D. within the last three years with a specialization in archaeology (broadly defined). We especially seek applicants who offer areas of research and teaching that complement the existing CIAMS faculty (see https://archaeology.cornell.edu/faculty ). Given Cornell’s strengths in Mediterranean and Near Eastern archaeology, we do not encourage applications from specialists in those areas, but are open to applicants who do research in any other part of the world. We are interested in scholars who can bring new analytical methods to CIAMS and have a particular interest in paleoethnobotanical research. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the faculty, we seek scholars whose work addresses issues of broad intellectual significance.

The Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate will teach two courses per year, and will deliver at least one public lecture each year (one of which may form part of the CIAMS, Finger Lakes AIA, or NYSAA lecture series). Additionally, the position-holder will be responsible for organizing and moderating the CIAMS brown-bag workshop series during the first year, and for organizing and hosting a thematic speaker series during one semester of the second year. The balance of the Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate’s time is to be devoted to her/his own research. A faculty mentor will be appointed to assist the Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate with their professional development. The Hirsch Postdoctoral Associate is required to be in residence at Cornell during the semesters of her/his tenure, but is free to conduct fieldwork in the summer or during the winter break if desired. The salary for this position will be $55,000 per year, with benefits, and with up to $3,000 per year available in research funds. Materials must be received by February 15, 2019 to receive full consideration.

Eligibility: Applicants must have received the Ph.D. degree no earlier than January 1, 2016. Applicants who will complete all requirements for the Ph.D. degree (including filing the dissertation) before appointment in August 2019 are eligible to apply. The completion date for the Ph.D. degree will in no circumstances be waived or extended.

Teaching: The position-holder is expected to teach four classes during the two years at Cornell, as follows: (1) a lower-level undergraduate course on a broadly-construed topic within his/her specialization; (2) a course on the practice of archaeology (on methods, ethics, etc.); (3) an upper-level course for a mix of undergraduate and graduate students on topics in his/her geographical area; and (4) a course of the applicant’s choosing. The timing and content of offerings will be negotiated after the fellow has accepted the position.

 

Applications: Applications must be submitted through Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/13131 . Please submit (1) a letter of application; (2) CV; (3) writing sample (of less than 30 pages); (4) a list of four courses (each with a 100-word description) that you propose to teach at Cornell; (5) a description of a possible theme for a series of 3–4 speakers in the second year; and (6) names and contact information for three references. Letters of reference will be solicited only for those applicants of the most interest to Cornell. Questions about the position or the application process should be addressed to CIAMS Director Prof. Kurt Jordan at kj21@cornell.edu .

Cornell University is an affirmative action equal opportunity employer and educator.

LMU Munich, Department of Asian Studies - Postdoctoral Researcher Archaeology and Material Culture of Early through Medieval China (Shang through Tang)

subm. by Gina Barnes
 

 

Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) Munich is one of Germany’s largest and well-known universities that offers its employees a wide variety of opportunities.

The Department of Asian Studies at Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) Munich is currently inviting applications for a non-tenure track position as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the rank of Akademischer Rat auf Zeit. Scholars should have expertise in two or more of the following fields, all pertaining to Early through Medieval China (Shang through Tang periods): a) archeology and material culture; b) paleography (excavated texts); c) history. Successful candidates will be well-versed in Classical Chinese and able to incorporate a wide range of different sources in their research and teaching. An interdisciplinary approach to archaeological and textual sources is also expected.

The successful applicant will be responsible to conduct research and teach undergraduate courses as needed. They will also assist in developing as well as teach in an English language MA program in Chinese archaeology and assume service responsibilities.
Applicants must have a PhD (or Dr. phil.) in Chinese archaeology or a related field at the time of appointment. Fieldwork experience and ongoing excavation projects in the PR China would be highly desired, but are not a prerequisite for a successful application. German language skills at the time of appointment are desired, but not mandatory. However, business fluency is expected one year after appointment.

The position of Akademischer Rat auf Zeit is commensurate with the A13 pay grade of German civil servants, with additional benefits for a dependant and children (see “Grundgehaltssätze der Besoldungsgruppe A” and “Familienzuschlag” at https://www.lff.bayern.de/bezuege/besoldung/). German civil servants are not subject to social security contributions, which renders their net earnings internationally competitive. The position entails a three-year contract with the possibility of a three-year extension at the same pay grade. During this period, the completion of a so-called Habilitationsschrift is expected, after which an additional four-year extension of the contract at a higher pay grade may be possible. The appointment as a German civil servant is dependent on the fulfillment of all general civil service law requirements.

To apply for this position, candidates must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy and research statement (no more than three pages each), and a writing sample (no more than 30 pages) to the following e-mail address by November 1, 2018:
sucrow@lmu.de

Candidates must also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be independently sent to the e-mail address mentioned above.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.

The appointment is scheduled to begin on October 1, 2019. A later starting may be possible pending candidate availability. In principle, a part-time appointment is possible. Severely disabled candidates with otherwise equal qualifications will be given preference. Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to sucrow@lmu.de.

Faculty of Letters of the University of Tokyo, Summer Programme in Japanese Archaeology and Heritage 2018

Japanese Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Summer Programme | Saturday 8th September to Saturday 22nd September 2018

Call for Applications for the Faculty of Letters of the University of Tokyo Summer Programme in Japanese Archaeology and Heritage 2018
 

About the Programme

The Faculty of Letters of the University of Tokyo, in conjunction with the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures, invites applications from undergraduate students who are not of Japanese nationality and interested in Japanese archaeology and heritage to take part in a two-week Summer School programme in Japan. Participants will spend the whole period with undergraduate students from the University of Tokyo and learn together about Japanese culture and history.

This is the fourth year that this exciting programme will be run. A report on the 2015 programme is available here.


Dates and contents of the programme

The programme will run from Saturday 8th September to Saturday 22nd September 2018.

The first week of the programme from the 8th to 14th September will be based at the Hongo Campus of the University of Tokyo in the central part of Tokyo, involving lectures, group work and visits to historical sites and museums. This will be followed by a week in Hokkaido. The Hokkaido portion of the programme will include lectures, visits to museums and heritage sites, and archaeological excavation at the Tokoro settlement dating to the Satsumon period (cir. 11th centuries CE) which has been the focus of a long-term research project at the Department of Archaeology of the University of Tokyo. The programme will be led by lecturers at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Tokyo.


Fees and conditions

The costs of the stay in Japan including accommodation, meals and internal travels will be covered by the Faculty of Letters of the University of Tokyo. Successful applicants will be responsible to pay for their own international travel costs to and from Tokyo as well as international travel insurance (to be arranged by themselves). The entire programme will be taught in English. No Japanese language or previous experience of Japan is required, although having some basic command of Japanese would make the application stronger. Participants will be asked to submit an essay on their experience upon conclusion of the programme; this essay will be published online subsequently. The programme cannot accommodate dietary requests (although some effort will be made).

Five students will be selected to join this programme with five undergraduate students from the University of Tokyo. Those who have been selected are expected to participate in the whole programme.


How to apply

Applicants should send a short statement of interest (up to 500 words) including why they would like to take part in this programme and a one-page CV to the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures at sumprotokyo2018@gmail.com by 11th May 2018.

The selection panel at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures will select the successful applicants, who will be notified in mid-May.

Queries should be addressed to sumprotokyo2018@gmail.com
