The Department of Egyptology and Ancient Western Asian Studies
at Brown University invites applications for a post-doctoral visiting
assistant professorship in Assyriology, Egyptology, or the material
culture of Egypt or Ancient Western Asia. Candidates whose
research interests complement those of current faculty are particularly
encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will be appointed for one year beginning on
1 July 2012. Post-doctoral visiting assistant professors are expected
to pursue their own research and publications and are required to
teach one course per semester at both the undergraduate and
graduate levels. Visiting assistant professors are also expected to
participate in the academic life of the department: for example, by
involvement in research seminars and counseling graduate students
in their research.

Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses
of three referees, and a letter of application detailing their research and
teaching interests and explaining how they would fit into the department.
Candidates should have received their PhD from an institution other
than Brown University within the last five years. Applications should
preferably be submitted electronically as PDFs by email before
28 February 2012.

Brown is an EEO/AA employer. Minorities and women are encouraged to apply.
