The Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science Funding Opportunities

American School of Classical Studies at Athens


Deadline: January 15, 2021

The Malcolm H. Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens currently offers two different types of Fellowship funding: a pre-doctoral or postdoctoral Research Associate position of up to nine months, as well as a pre-doctoral (2-year term) and a post-doctoral (3-year term) position. Applicants are welcome from any college or university worldwide. Independent scholars are also welcome to apply.
 Priority will be given to question-driven research projects that address substantive problems 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 humanlandscape interactions and the study of site formation processes). Research projects utilizing other archaeological scientific approaches are also eligible for consideration, depending on the strength of the questions asked and the suitability of the plan for access to other equipment or resources not available on site in the Wiener Laboratory.
