Appel à candidature : Bourse post-doc franco-polonaise au Caire (PCMA - IFAO - deadline 1/04/2017)

févr. 15 2017

Celebrating 80 years of French-Polish cooperation in archaeology, the Institut français d'archéologie orientale (IFAO) and the Polish Center of Mediterranean Archaeology, Research Center in Cairo (RC PCMA) invite applications for a 15-months Post-Doctoral Fellowship, starting 1st October 2017 until 31 December 2018.

Statut, service

The Post-Doctoral Fellow will organize an international two-day Seminar/Workshop on a subject in relation with Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa. The application must outline the state of the art in the proposed subject and clearly present an added value to the studies of past societies. We encourage cross-disciplinary proposals offering a wider, comparative perspective of the area under study.

Missions principales

The conference will take place in Cairo in late Spring 2018. Following the conference, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will be in charge of the edition of the proceedings and submit the manuscript for approval by the joint IFAO-RC PCMA editorial committee. During the entire course of the appointment, the Fellow will take part in the scientific activities of IFAO and RC PCMA and carry out his/her own research.

The Fellow is expected to stay in Cairo during the Fellowship and divide his/her time equally between the RC PCMA and IFAO. He/She will be offered an accommodation during the fellowship and additionally a free lunch while staying at the RC PCMA. The position is a contract, not an employment position, according to Polish and French regulations. The stipend for the entire period of Fellowship is 30 000 euros, paid on a monthly basis.


The applicant must hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in a discipline related to the study of Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa and/or the Near East for maximum 4 years as of 15 March 2017. The Fellowship is open for applicants of all nationalities.

Procédure de candidature

The application will include:

1. Cover letter
2. Max. 5-page proposal in English outlining the aim and structure of the Seminar/Workshop program, including the names and paper topics of at least four key participants who have agreed to take part in the event. For budgetary reasons the IFAO and PCMA will cover the costs of travel and accommodation of no more than four invited speakers.
3. Curriculum vitae, including the list of publications, the names and contact information (including e-mail) for three referees.

Applications should be sent as a single pdf file to and before 1st April 2017 at midnight.
