      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 2008–2009 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.
      Information on past Oriental Institute Annual symposia can be viewed
      at: http://oi.uchicago.edu/research/symposia/
      Qualifications: Ph.D. in a discipline relating to ancient studies
      must be complete at the time of application. Applicants should send:

      1. 5-page proposal outlining nature and structure of the
      conference (including names and paper topics of six to eight key
      participants who have agreed to make presentations, should the
      conference be funded)
      2. curriculum vitae
      3. 3 letters of reference (these may be sent under separate cover)

      Electronic submissions are welcome. Deadline for completed
      applications is January 7th, 2008. Start date is September 1, 2008.
