Deadline: January 15, 2018

Purpose: For scholars associated with an ASCSA directed or affiliated project to conduct question- driven research at the Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Priority will be given to projects that address substantive problems through the application of interdisciplinary methods in the archaeological sciences, especially those projects directed toward human skeletal studies, archaeobotany, archaeozoology, geoarchaeology, or material sciences, or a combination of these disciplinary approaches.

Who May Apply: A project proposal is welcomed from anyone affiliated with any ASCSA archaeological project. This includes the two ASCSA directed archaeological projects at Ancient Corinth and the Athenian Agora, and any of the excavations or survey projects approved by the ASCSA Excavation and Survey Committee and awarded a permit by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sport. Both current and former permit holders are eligible to apply. A specific candidate for the fellowship must be named in the application, the principal investigator, who has received their PhD and has a demonstrable record of research and publication directly relevant to the project.

Term: Three (3) years with the next term beginning early September 2018. It is expected that the successful applicant will maintain a physical presence at the Wiener Laboratory during each of the three academic years (September to June 1).

Compensation: Stipend of $35,000 for 12 months, for a total of 36 months. School fees included.
