Job Opening – Professor of Ancient Asian Art and Archaeology (7/2009)
Institute for the Study of the Ancient World – NYU
New York, NY
The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, New York University (ISAW), seeks to make a faculty appointment in the area of the art and archaeology of ancient Asia, with particular focus on ancient Iran and Central Asia, effective in fall, 2010. ISAW is a newly created, specially funded, cross-disciplinary institute for research and graduate education in the history, archaeology, and culture of the entire Old World, including Asia and Africa, from late prehistoric times to the eighth century AD. (See www.nyu.edu/isaw for details.) The rank of this tenured or tenure-track appointment is open, but we prefer to appoint at an advanced junior level. We seek individuals of scholarly distinction whose work will benefit from freedom from departmental structures and the stimulation of working closely with colleagues in other disciplines, approaches, periods, or geographical areas and who are committed to helping develop the intellectual life of such a community. Applicants with a history of interdisciplinary exchange are particularly welcome. The Institute’s graduate program emphasizes individual supervision and research seminars. The faculty is involved in choosing a group of visiting researchers each year.
Applications (letter, curriculum vitae, and list of referees) or nominations should be sent to: Professor Roger S. Bagnall, Director Institute for the Study of the Ancient World 15 East 84th St. New York, NY 10028. Applications by fax and email are not accepted. Review of candidates will begin on September 15, 2009. For additional information, please contact Ms. Kathryn Lawson by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 212-992-7860.
