RESEARCH ASSOCIATE APPOINTMENT
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.
