The German Archaeological Institute (Deutsches Archäologisches Institut or DAI) is pleased to announce the availability of two research fellowships for AIA members who are working in North American institutions. The purpose of the fellowship program is to encourage and support scholarship of the highest quality on various aspects of archaeology and to promote contact between North American and German archaeologists. In 2013, the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut will offer two post-doctoral research fellowships to scholars of archaeology based in North America who wish to use the library facilities of the DAI in Berlin. Applicants need not be U.S., Canadian or Mexican citizens.
Prerequisites for the fellowship are a Ph.D. degree (or its equivalent) and professional competence in archaeology. The principal requirement is a detailed research proposal of no more than three pages. While in residence, the Fellows will be expected to give a lecture for the DAI.
