Postdoctoral Associate in Egyptology

Yale University



Yale University intends to appoint a Postdoctoral Associate in

Egyptology for the academic year 2016-17. The activity of this

postdoctoral position is two-fold:



a. research and writing in collaboration with the scholarly

activities of Egyptology at Yale University;



b. teaching one course per term; a total of two courses per

academic year;



This postdoctoral associate position is funded by the William K.

and Marilyn M. Simpson Endowment for Egyptology, administered

by the Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations Department at

Yale University. This position will also be affiliated with the

Yale Egyptological Institute in Egypt, which sponsors research

and instruction in the philology and cultures of ancient Egypt

and Nubia. Egyptology courses at Yale present the history,

languages, and archaeology of ancient Egypt and her neighboring

regions from the earliest pre-dynastic through the Coptic

period. Lectures, seminars, and reading courses cover topics

such as art history, administration and society, burial practices,

ceramic technology, military history, Egyptian languages of all

periods (including Coptic), among others.



In addition to the curriculum, Yale's academic activities in

Egyptology include a wide range of visiting scholars, close

affiliation with the Peabody Museum and Beinecke Library, and

there are active archaeological missions in Egypt. The

postdoctoral associate will be expected to take an active part

in these activities; it is hoped that s/he will organize at

least one substantial international conference during the

period of the postdoctoral appointment.



The initial appointment is for one year, thereafter renewable

(contingent on satisfactory performance), with an additional

one-year appointment. A Ph.D. in Egyptology is required, as

is a broad and solid knowledge of or about Egyptology in all

its sub-fields, from prehistory to the end of the Coptic period.

Demonstrated ability in language instruction is desirable. The

annual salary is $55,000, plus healthcare benefits.



Yale University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity

employer. Yale values diversity among its students, faculty,

and staff and especially welcomes applications from women,

persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and

underrepresented minorities.
