Brown University's Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World
The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World is dedicated to the academic study and public promotion of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and Western Asia (the latter broadly construed as extending from Anatolia and the Levant to the Caucasus, and including the territories of the ancient Near East); our principal research interests lie in the complex soc...ieties of the pre-modern era. Although the core efforts of the Joukowsky Institute are archaeological in nature and are located within this broadly defined zone, close ties with all individuals interested in the ancient world, and with archaeologists of all parts of the globe, are welcome and actively encouraged. The goal of the Institute is to foster an interdisciplinary community of interest in the archaeology of the ancient world, and in the discipline of archaeology more generally. Its mandate is to promote research, fieldwork, teaching, and public outreach, with the Institute’s associated faculty, students, and facilities serving as a hub for this activity. Established in 2004, the Joukowsky Institute incorporates and amplifies the activities of Brown’s former Center for Old World Archaeology and Art.
The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University invites applications from exceptional junior scholars who have demonstrated a capacity for innovative research and cross-disciplinary thinking.

We seek candidates who best augment or complement the present strengths of the Joukowsky Institute community. We are particularly interested in individuals working in four spheres: 1) visual culture; 2) archaeologies of gender; 3) public archaeology; 4) the archaeology and art of the ancient Asian world.

In addition to pursuing their research, successful candidates will be expected to teach half time — i.e., one course per semester. Teaching may be at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; interdisciplinary offerings are desirable. Applicants must normally have received their Ph.D. from an institution other than Brown within the last five years. Successful candidates will be expected to make substantive contributions to the ongoing development of the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, such as the organization of reading or working groups, a topical symposium, or another project intended to foster a stimulating intellectual environment in which to pursue research and to develop new interdisciplinary connections. This will be a one-year position, with the possibility of a one-year renewal, beginning on August 1, 2014.

All candidates should submit a letter of application, short descriptions of 3-4 proposed courses, and curriculum vitae by March 31, 2014. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted by the application deadline. Applications received by March 31, 2014 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the position is closed or filled.

Please submit application materials online at apply.interfolio.com/24429.
