Visiting Faculty Fellowship in Archaeological Materials

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) at MIT invites applications for its new, ongoing program of Visiting Faculty Fellowships in Archaeological Materials. The Fellowship is intended to support a visiting scholar at DMSE for up to one academic year who will work at the intersection of materials science and engineering and archaeology, which includes investigations that bridge archaeological materials and paleoecologies. Fellows can draw upon DMSE facilities and laboratories as well as those at the Center for Materials Research in Archaeology and Ethnology (CMRAE). The Fellowship includes a salary, and additional support is available for teaching. Applicants should submit a letter of interest, a CV with the names of three references, up to three publications, and a two- to three-page description of the applicant's research plan and, optionally, for teaching during the term of the Fellowship. Applicants from academic institutions must have appointments at the level of Associate Professor or Professor.
