Harvard University’s American School of Prehistoric Research (ASPR) is offering Junior Fellowships for recent PhD graduates focusing on Old World prehistory. These postdoctoral research fellowships provide an opportunity to pursue independent research and offer one course per year. With a stipend of $80,000 plus a $20,000 research allowance, the two-year fellowship, extendable to three, emphasizes residence at Harvard, limited teaching, and mentorship from Harvard faculty. Applications, requiring a research proposal, CV, recommendations, and academic transcripts, are due by January 25, 2024.
The American School of Prehistoric Research (ASPR), which supports research and education in Old World prehistory, is pleased to announce ASPR Junior Fellowships: postdoctoral research fellowships at Harvard University for recent PhDs who are pursuing independent research on Old World prehistory. ASPR Junior Fellows are invited to offer one course per year in a Harvard department of their choosing, but otherwise are expected to conduct independent research. They may not take courses for credit or teach more than one course per year, and they are expected to be in residence at Harvard during the academic year when not conducting fieldwork. Currently, there will be two ASPR Junior Fellows at a time, each for an appointment of two years with the possibility for extension to a maximum of three years. As a result, applications for ASPR Junior Fellows may not be offered every year. During 2024/2025 the stipend for ASPR Junior Fellows will be $80,000 with full benefits, and they will receive a research stipend of $20,000/year.
