Professor of Ancient Western Mediterranean Art and Archaeology
- Professor of Ancient Western Mediterranean Art and Archaeology
The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, New York University (ISAW), seeks to make a
faculty appointment in the area of the art and archaeology of the ancient western Mediterranean,
with particular focus on non-Roman cultures, particularly Etruscan or Punic, effective in fall,
2010. ISAW is a newly created, specially funded, cross-disciplinary institute for research and
graduate education in the history, archaeology, and culture of the entire Old World, including Asia
and Africa, from late prehistoric times to the eighth century AD. (See www.nyu.edu/isaw for
details.) The rank of this tenured or tenure-track appointment is open, but we prefer to appoint at
the recently tenured or advanced junior level. We seek individuals of scholarly distinction whose
work will benefit from freedom from departmental structures and who will be stimulated by working
closely with colleagues in other disciplines, approaches, periods, or geographical areas and who are
committed to helping develop the intellectual life of such a community. Applicants with a history of
interdisciplinary exchange are particularly welcome. The Institute’s graduate program emphasizes
individual supervision and research seminars. The faculty is involved in choosing a group of
visiting researchers each year.
Applications (letter, curriculum vitae, and list of referees) or nominations should be sent to:
Professor Roger S. Bagnall, Director
Institute for the Study of the Ancient World
15 East 84th St.
New York, NY 10028
Applications by fax and email are not accepted. Review of candidates will begin on September 15,
