Each year, 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, 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. No bench fee charges will be applied but the bursary holder will need to cover the expenses of any planned sample preparation or analysis. 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.
When applications for Fitch Bursaries are open, it will be advertised here, on this website, in addition to other venues, with details of how to apply.
For enquiries or further information please contact Dr Evangelia Kiriatzi, the Laboratory Director (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Additional details about the School and the Laboratory can be also found at http://www.bsa.ac.uk/ .
