The Fellowship is tenable at doctoral and post-doctoral level to support research on the provenance and technology of archaeological ceramics, metals and/or vitreous material, using the Fitch Laboratory’s equipment for chemical analysis.
The Fellow should hold a PhD degree or be close to acquire one and be suitably qualified to undertake such research and operate the WD-XRF system (wavelength despersive x-ray fluorescence spectrometer) currently used at the Fitch. The Laboratory undertakes a range of collaborative research into ancient ceramics and the Fellow is expected to work on Laboratory projects and/or, subject to the approval of the Fitch Laboratory Committee, pursue his/her own research initiatives. Applicants should be archaeologists with training and practical experience in archaeological chemistry or chemists/geologists/material analysts with experience in the analysis of archaeological materials. Previous experience in Greek/Aegean archaeology is highly desirable but not a requirement.
The position, when open, it will be advertised on this website, in addition to other venues, with details of how to apply.
