Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Culture and Ideology of Writing in the 
Ancient Mediterranean

The Departments of Religious Studies, Classics, and History, and the 
Programs in Judaic Studies and Early Cultures, invite applications for 
an International Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the area of the culture and 
ideology of writing in the ancient Mediterranean. Specialization is 
open, but preference will be given to candidates who employ the digital 
humanities in their research; applicants from outside North America are 
especially encouraged to apply. The fellow’s administrative home will be 
in the Department of Religious Studies, but applications are invited in 
any of the fields represented by the sponsoring programs, and the 
successful candidate is expected to be able to work across disciplines.

Fellows participate in a weekly, multi-disciplinary seminar at the Cogut 
Humanities Center and teach one course each term. S/he will join a 
strong intellectual community of scholars from across the university who 
work on issues involving the role of writing in the pre-modern world.

This is a two year position beginning July 1, 2017, with stipends of 
$61,500 and $63,907 in the first and second years, respectively, plus 
standard fellows’ benefits and a $2,000 per year research budget. 
Applicants must have received their Ph.D. within the last five years 
from an institution other than Brown. Applicants should submit a CV; 
letter of interest; and writing sample (of about 20 pages) online 
through https://apply.interfolio.com/39903 and arrange for the 
submission of three letters of recommendation. The Search Committee will 
begin reviewing applications on February 1, 2017.
