Two Post-Doc Positions at the Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute
of Archaeology, Tel Aviv University, in fields of Archaeology,
Ancient Israel Studies, and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures

The Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology, Tel Aviv
University, will appoint two post-doctoral scholars for 2016-2017
academic year in the fields of Archaeology, Ancient Israel Studies,
or Ancient Near Eastern Cultures.

The highly competitive fellowships are offered to researchers
across many disciplines, and will be awarded on the basis of
academic excellence.

Applicants should have received their Ph.D. in a relevant field
within the last three years from an institution other than Tel
Aviv University. While appropriate training in archaeology,
biblical studies, ancient Near Eastern cultures and/or biblical
history is required, the nature of an applicant's specific
research interests and areas of expertise is open.

Successful candidates are expected to make substantive contributions
to the ongoing development of the Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute
of Archaeology by organizing a colloquium on a subject to be
decided at the beginning of the academic year that will stimulate an
intellectual environment in which research and new interdisciplinary
connections are pursued and developed.

In addition to engaging in their own research, the successful
candidates will be expected to teach one two-hour graduate level
seminar during one of the two semesters (interdisciplinary themes
are desirable).

The fellowship period will begin October 1, 2016, and is for a
period of one academic year. The appointment carries an NIS 80,000
(= approximately $20,000) stipend for each candidate.

Applicants are requested to submit a cover letter, a CV, a
detailed statement of current research interests (up to 2000
words), and two letters of reference (to be submitted directly
by the recommenders). In addition, post-doctoral fellows must
state if they are applying for other sources of funding for
the fellowship period.

The scientific committee includes Prof. Oded Lipschits, Prof.
Israel Finkelstein, Prof. Ran Barkai, Dr. Erez Ben Yosef,
Dr. Guy Stiebel, Dr. Yuval Gadot, Dr. Dafna Langgut and
Prof. Yoram Cohen.

Application materials should be sent to: Mrs. Nirit Kedem,
the administrative manager of the Institute of Archaeology
(niritshi@tauex.tau.ac.il).
Subject heading should read: Post-Doctoral Application.

Last date for acceptance of material: March 3, 2016.
Results will be published on April 14, 2016.
