The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) at MIT invites inaugural 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 one academic year who will work at the intersection of materials science and engineering and the social sciences, specifically archaeology. 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 $50k 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 teaching (optional) during the term of the Fellowship. Applicants from academic institutions must have appointments at the level of Associate Professor or Professor.
Please submit application materials no later than by 31 January 2016 to email@example.com Questions about the Fellowships may be addressed directly to Professor Heather Lechtman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
With MIT’s strong commitment to diversity in engineering education, research and practice we especially encourage minorities and women to apply.
