The Edgar J. Peltenburg Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Cypriot Prehistory

The Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute (CAARI)


Deadline: January 23, 2020

This is an annual fellowship in honor of the late Professor Edgar Peltenburg to conduct research on Cypriot prehistory (from the first visitors to the transition to the Iron Age). Applicants of all nationalities are encouraged to apply provided they have been awarded a PhD degree by the start of the fellowship. Although the fellowship is open to scholars of all ages, priority will be given to early career candidates who have received their PhDs within five years of the start of the fellowship. The period of the fellowship is nine months, renewable in exceptional cases for an additional nine months; it includes a $14,000 stipend and up to $1,500 travel expenses for those traveling to Cyprus from abroad. The deadline for applications is January 23, 2020 with notification approximately one month later. It can begin as early as March 1 or as late as April 30, 2020. The fellow will normally be expected to reside at CAARI for the duration of the fellowship. In addition, he or she is expected to play an active role in the CAARI community and to contribute to our academic environment with research-related and/or outreach events. Details for applying, including an application form and conditions of the fellowship, can be found below.
