Koç University invites applications from junior and senior scholars specializing in the archaeology, art history, history, and allied disciplines of Anatolia (and Istanbul) during the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk, and Ottoman eras. Fellowships, which include accommodation, travel, and stipend, will be given to approximately 10 Ph.D candidates and 10 scholars with Ph.D to spend the 2010-2011 academic year in Istanbul at Koç University's Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations. Successful candidates will be required to be resident in Istanbul during the 9-month academic year (September 15 - June 15). Some senior fellowships may be granted on a semester basis (September 15 - January 31 or February 1 - June 15). A small number of Non-Residential fellowships is now available for those already resident in Istanbul and/or with families.
Located at the Beyoglu district of Istanbul, the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations offers housing, study, and computer facilities to its fellows. It is near the libraries of the French, German, Swedish, and Dutch Institutes and other scholarly facilities in Istanbul. RCAC fellows are expected to devote themselves full time to their research projects. Fellows will also be asked to give 2 lectures on their work during the course of the year. Fellows must be proficient in English, which is the language of instruction at Koç University.
Application deadline : December 15, 2009.
