Oriental Institute Job Posting: Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Rank
of Instructor

The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago invites
applications for the Oriental Institute’s Annual Post-Doctoral
Fellow Conference program for the 2016–2018 academic years.
This is a twenty-four-month, non-renewable appointment.  During
the first year of the appointment, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will
organize and conduct a two-day conference at the Oriental Institute
on key comparatively oriented theoretical or methodological issues
in the field of ancient studies (archaeological, text-based, and/or
art historical avenues of research).  We encourage cross-disciplinary
proposals that deal with the ancient Near East (including Egypt)
or that compare the Near East with other cultural areas.  Applicants
should take into consideration the research interests represented at
the Oriental Institute.  The conference will take place in early
March 2017. Following the conference, the Post-Doctoral Fellow
will work with publication staff to assemble and edit the
proceedings for publication in the “Oriental Institute Seminars”
series.  During the second year of the appointment, the Post-Doctoral
Fellow will assist in organizing a series of faculty seminars at the
Oriental Institute and may have the opportunity to teach one quarter-
length course on a topic of his or her choosing. The incumbent is
also encouraged to pursue his or her own research while in residence
and to interact with the Oriental Institute community.
