DAI/AIA Fellowship for Study in the U.S.

    The Archaeological Institute of America is pleased to announce the availability of a Fellowship for archaeologists employed by the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI), or project collaborators who have temporary contracts with the DAI. The purpose of the Fellowship is to encourage and support scholarship of the highest quality on various aspects of archaeology, and to promote contact between North American archaeologists and DAI scholars.

    The AIA offers post-doctoral research fellowships for use during the academic year (one for the fall of 2015 and one for the spring of 2016) at either The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, or the University of Cincinnati, Ohio.


    Applicants who are archaeologists must have a Ph.D. degree; architects must have their diploma. Both must demonstrate professional competence in archaeology in their applications. Project collaborators must show proof of a long-time participation with a current DAI project by providing a letter of recommendation from a DAI project supervisor.

    Fellows will be selected on the basis of scholarly promise as indicated by the applicant’s academic record, prior publications, and the merits of the proposed research project. Preference will be given to applicants who are at an early stage of their professional careers. Candidates may indicate a preference for either Brown, UCLA, or Cincinnati, but the final decision will be made by the selection committee.
