The German Archaeological Institute (Deutsches Archäologisches Institut or DAI) is pleased to announce the availability of two research fellowships for AIA members who are working in North American institutions. The purpose of the fellowship program is to encourage and support scholarship of the highest quality on various aspects of archaeology and to promote contact between North American and German archaeologists.
In 2013, the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut will offer two post-doctoral research fellowships to scholars of archaeology based in North America who wish to use the library facilities of the DAI in Berlin. Applicants need not be U.S., Canadian or Mexican citizens.
The fellowship includes travel expenses for the Fellow, a stipend of 24 €/day plus 4.12 €/day for research expenses, and residence in the DAI’s guest house. If the Fellow is accompanied by a spouse the stipend will be increased by an additional 5.11 €/day but the spouse’s travel expenses will not be covered by the Fellowship. Unfortunately, children cannot be accommodated in the DAI’s guest house.
Prerequisites for the fellowship are a Ph.D. degree (or its equivalent) and professional competence in archaeology. The principal requirement is a detailed research proposal of no more than three pages. While in residence, the Fellows will be expected to give a lecture for the DAI.
Criteria Used in the Awarding of Fellowships:
- Fellows will be selected on the basis of scholarly promise as indicated by the applicant’s academic record, prior publications and the merits of the proposed research project.
- Preference will be given to applicants who are at an early stage of their professional careers.
- Applicants must be members of the Archaeological Institute of America and must be residents of a North American country.
- The German Archaeological Institute supports affirmative action and equal opportunity in the selection of fellows.
