The Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science of the ASCSA is an active research department dedicated to archaeological science in Greece. The lab provides both American and international scholars of archaeological science in the eastern Mediterranean and adjacent areas the tools and resources to answer a variety of scientfically-based questions mainly in the fields of bioarchaeology, geoarchaeology, paleobotany, and zooarchaeology (see vision, mission and philosophy).
The director of the Wiener Laboratory is Dr. Panagiotis Karkanas (CV). Assistant to the director is Eleni Stathi. The lab provides variety of fellowships (see fellows and grants) as well as facilities for independent research, and it offers research assistance to scholars who cannot physically travel to the laboratory. The lab's present post-doc is Dr. Calla McNammee. Educational outreach is offered via seminars, a regular lecture series, research publications and workshops.
