Applications are invited from graduate students or young scholars for an award to support research at the Fitch Laboratory, British School at Athens (BSA) for up to 3 months in the academic year 2017-18 in any of the fields in which the Laboratory is active

(e.g. ceramic studies, archaeometallurgy, geophysical prospection, zooarchaeology, archaeobotany, soil micromorphology, ethnoarchaeology, landscape archaeology, archaeology of technology; normally in the context of Aegean/Mediterranean archaeology). The Bursary includes a monthly stipend (400€), BSA membership and accommodation at the BSA Hostel in Athens and, if required for research purposes, also in Knossos. The award holder will be required to submit a report on her/his research at the Laboratory to the Laboratory’s Subcommittee and Director.

The successful applicant will be expected to use the facilities of the Fitch Laboratory (including analytical equipment and reference collections) as well as the BSA library to further on-going work, in the context of a postgraduate degree or postdoctoral research. The award carries no other formal obligation, although involvement in the academic life of the BSA (for example in the form of a seminar) is welcome. 

Applications should include a covering letter (indicating the preferred length and period of stay), a Curriculum Vitae, a statement of the proposed programme of research (up to one page) and the names and contact details of two referees. Applicants should ask referees to send their recommendations by the deadline. The successful applicant will be responsible for acquiring on time any required permits for study and transfer of archaeological material to the Fitch Laboratory. If the use of in-house analytical facilities is necessary for the proposed research, applicants are advised to contact the Laboratory Director to get feedback on costs and timing.

Applications and reference letters should be submitted by Friday 26 May 2017 via e-mail to Mrs Tania Gerousi, the BSA administrator (This email address is being protected from spambots.
