The PCMA – IFAO Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Cairo
The Institut français d’archéologie orientale (IFAO) and the Polish Center of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw (PCMA) invite applications for a 16-months Post-Doctoral Fellowship, starting 1st September 2020 until 31 December 2021.
The Post-Doctoral Fellow will organize an international two-day Seminar/Workshop on a subject in relation with Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa (Egypt and/or Nubia). The application must outline the state of the art in the proposed subject and clearly present an added value to the studies of past societies. We encourage cross-disciplinary proposals offering a wider, comparative perspective of the area under study.
The conference will take place in Cairo in Spring 2021. Following the conference, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will be in charge of the edition of the proceedings and submit the manuscript for approval by the joint IFAO-PCMA editorial committee. During the entire course of the appointment, the Fellow will take part in the scientific activities of IFAO and PCMA and carry out his/her own research.
The Fellow is expected to stay in Cairo during the Fellowship and divide his/her time equally between the PCMA and IFAO. He/She will be offered an accommodation during the fellowship and additionally a free lunch while staying at the PCMA. The position is a grant, not an employment position, according to Polish and French regulations. The stipend for the entire period of Fellowship is 32 000 euros in total, paid on a monthly basis.
The applicant must hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in a discipline related to the study of Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa and/or the Near East for maximum 7 years as of 24th of May 2020. The Fellowship is open for applicants of all nationalities.
