Type: Grant

Name: Wiener Laboratory Research Associate Appointments

Location: Athens, Greece

Application Deadline: January 15, 2020

Sponsoring Institution: American School of Classical Studies at Athens


Deadline: January 15, 2020

Eligibility: Individuals actively enrolled in a graduate program and individuals with a Masters or Doctorate in a relevant discipline. Applicants are welcome from any college or university worldwide. Independent scholars are also welcome to apply.
Former Research Associates must wait two (2) years before applying for a Post- or pre- Doctoral Fellowship. Exceptions to these basic eligibility requirements will be granted only in extraordinary cases.

Purpose: To conduct short-term, focused research at the Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens as part of a program of research that addresses substantive problems pertaining to the ancient Greek world, or adjacent areas, through the application of interdisciplinary methods in the archaeological sciences. Wiener Laboratory facilities are especially well equipped to support the study of human skeletal biology, archaeobiological remains (faunal and botanical), environmental studies, and geoarchaeology (particularly studies in human-landscape interactions and the study of site formation processes). Research projects utilizing other archaeological scientific approaches are also welcome, depending on the strength of the questions asked and the suitability of the plan for access to equipment and resources available elsewhere in Greece.

Term: Variable; up to nine (9) months with the next term beginning early September 2020. It is expected that the applicant will maintain a physical presence at the Wiener Laboratory during the tenure of the appointment. Contributions to the Athens-based ASCSA community during the tenure of the Research Associate appointment, in the form of seminars, colloquia, and workshops, participation in School field trips, or some combination of these and other activities, are encouraged.

Compensation: Stipend up to $7000 plus waiver of School fees. Fellow pays room and board.

Application: All requests for Wiener Laboratory funding must be filed through the ASCSA application portal. Successful applicants for Wiener Laboratory funding will be automatically awarded either a Senior or Student Associate Membership in the ASCSA. Applicants for research associate appointments who are no longer enrolled in a graduate program must apply as Senior Associate Members. Applicants still enrolled in graduate programs must apply as Student Associate Members. Applicants must provide all information requested on the ASCSA Wiener Laboratory Fellowships form for all fields marked with a red asterisk (*).
