- 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 20082009 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. The conference will take place in early to mid March 2009.
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.
