Deadline: 15th of July 2021. Starting date 1st of January 2022. Duration: 2 years.
Institute of Classical Archaeology is seeking a highly qualified post-doctoral researcher with international experience to join our team for two years with his/her own project focused on art and/or archaeology of the Central and Western Mediterranean during the Roman Period.
Specialisations currently represented in our institute cover the Bronze Ages and the Early Iron Age in the Aegean and the Balkans, the Hellenistic world, Central Asia, Roman Thrace, Iron Age Italy and Central Europe, with field projects in Uzbekistan, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Northern Macedonia, Croatia, and France. We thus seek a dynamic early career researcher who will both match the varied profile of the institute and explicitly complement it with his/her erudition in Roman archaeology, currently missing in our portfolio.
The proposed project should geographically fall broadly within the Central and Western Mediterranean (i.e. from the western Balkans, through Italy, the Alpine area and France up to the Iberian Peninsula, including Northern Africa) during the Roman period. It should show innovative approaches within one (or more) of the following specialisations:
- Art and iconography
- Material culture
- Architecture and urban studies
- Landscape archaeology
- Digital humanities
- Archaeological sciences
- Process of ‘Romanisation’
In addition to conducting research on the candidate’s proposed project, the successful applicant will be expected to offer two semester-long courses on an M.A. level based on his/her research (1 semester = 12 weeks x 90 minutes of instruction per week), ideally one being a lecture course and one being a seminar (i.e. a course involving active interaction with the students); both courses are to be delivered in English, any time during the two years. The researcher is expected to publish results of the conducted research in at least two papers submitted in SCOPUS-ranked peer-reviewed journals. The results of the research project will be presented in a workshop or a smaller conference to be organised by the successful candidate during the second year of the postdoc.
The successful applicant is expected to move to Prague and actively participate in the everyday activities of the Institute, which provides a collegial and highly collaborative environment. We strongly believe in synergies between our projects. Should the collaboration be mutually satisfying, we will encourage the postdoctoral fellow to apply for additional project funding, thus securing continued involvement with our institute.
Profile of an ideal candidate:
- Completed PhD degree in excellent standing (within the last 5 years since graduation).
- Excellent knowledge of English (FCE equivalent or better).
- Strong background in Classical archaeology or Mediterranean archaeology.
- High motivation and ability to conduct collaborative research.
- Previous participation in international projects.
- Previous experience in teaching at an undergraduate and/or graduate level is welcomed.
- Due to tax specification, the candidate cannot be employed in any other country than Czech Republic in course of the postdoctoral period.
The applicants should submit:
- All documents required by the Charles University’s Junior Fund
- A one-page cover letter introducing yourselves
- A two-page description of the proposed project
- Sample syllabi of two proposed courses/seminars
- A short description the final workshop (200-300 words)
