Fellowships and Research Associate Appointments

The Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science provides funding for scholars pursuing interdisciplinary research on archaeological questions pertaining to the ancient Greek world and adjacent areas. Three different types of Fellowship funding are offered Post-Doctoral (3 year), Pre-Doctoral (2 year term), and Senior (5-10 months), as well as shorter duration, more focused Research Associate positions. Applicants are welcome from any college or university worldwide.

Priority will be given to question-driven research projects that address substantive problems through the application of interdisciplinary methods in the archaeological sciences. Laboratory facilities are especially well equipped to support the study of human skeletal biology, archaeobiological remains (faunal and botanical), environmental studies, and geoarchaeology (particularly studies in human-landscape interactions and the study of site formation processes). Research projects utilizing other archaeological scientific approaches are also eligible for consideration, depending on the strength of the questions asked and the suitability of the plan for access to other equipment or resources not available on site.
