2015 Postdoctoral Positions at LabEx DynamiTe in France


Awarding Institute/Country:  LabEx DynamiTe in France providing this Position.

Study Subject(s): Position is available for a research project on “River ports of Egypt and the Near East”.

Course Level: Position is open for postdoctoral researchers to undertake a research project.

Scholarship Description: LabEx DynamiTe invites applications for a postdoctoral position to undertake a research project on River ports of Egypt and the Near East. The eligible candidate must hold a doctorate in the history or archaeology of the ancient Near East or Egyptology. The duration of this position is 1 year commencing between 01/09/2015 and 01/12/2015 (according to preference). The net monthly salary will be approximately EUR 2324. The deadline for the submission of applications is 26 April, 2015.

Although the territories of both Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia were modelled by major rivers (the Nile in the case of Egypt, and the Tigris and Euphrates in Mesopotamia), no systematic research study has ever been carried out on one of the main features that enabled their operative use, i.e. the ports. Yet, as indispensable infrastructures, the ports dictated the pace of the development of these regions by promoting navigation and interaction and through their emergence as strategic points. The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the research blog on hypotheses which has already been set up (fleuves.hypotheses.org). On completion of the contract, the research results will form the basis of a synthesis text to be published in a leading international journal (A ranking). Depending on the post-doc’s specialism, the article will be submitted to the Journal of Egyptian history or Akkadica.

Eligibility: The candidate must:
-hold a doctorate in the history or archaeology of the ancient Near East or Egyptology;
-have knowledge of the topic based on his or her doctoral studies or experience;
-have knowledge of the scientific references and debates surrounding these topics within both his or her own discipline and other disciplines;
-be completely fluent in French and English: a good knowledge of German would be an advantage;
-be able to work in a pluridisciplinary team.
