      Oriental Institute Job Posting: Post-Doctoral Scholar

      The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago invites
      applications for the Oriental Institute's Annual Post-Doctoral
      Scholar Conference program for the 2009–2010 academic year. This is
      a twelve-month, non-renewable appointment. The Post-Doctoral Scholar
      will organize and conduct a two-day conference at the Oriental
      Institute on key comparatively oriented theoretical or methodological
      issues in the field of ancient studies (archaeological, text-based,
      and/or art historical avenues of research). We encourage cross-
      disciplinary proposals that deal with the ancient Near East
      (including Egypt) or that compare the Near East with other cultural
      areas. Applicants should take into consideration the research
      interests represented at the Oriental Institute. The conference will
      take place in early to mid March 2010. After the conference, the Post-
      Doctoral Scholar will work with publication staff to assemble and
      edit the proceedings for publication in the "Oriental Institute
      Seminars" series. The incumbent is also encouraged to pursue his or
      her own research while in residence and to interact with the Oriental
      Institute community.
