Post-doctoral fellowship

This annual fellowship is in honour of the late Professor Edgar Peltenburg and provides a stipend to conduct research on Cypriot prehistory (from the first visitors to the transition to the Iron Age). Applicants of all nationalities are encouraged to apply provided they have been awarded a PhD degree by the start of the fellowship. Although the fellowship is open to scholars of all ages, priority will be given to early career candidates who have received their PhDs within five years of the start of the fellowship. The period of the fellowship is nine months, renewable in exceptional cases for an additional nine months; it includes a US $14,000 stipend and up to US $1,500 travel expenses for those traveling to Cyprus from abroad. The fellowship can begin as early as March 1 or as late as June 30. The fellow will normally be expected to reside at CAARI for the duration of the fellowship and therefore accommodation in the CAARI residence is included. In addition, he or she is expected to play an active role in the CAARI community and to contribute to our academic environment with research-related and/or outreach events.

Deadline for postdoctoral fellowship: January 8, 2024.
