OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Haifa Center for Mediterranean History (HCMH) seeks applications for postdoctoral fellowships for the academic years 2022-24. HCMH began its work some six years ago, promoting the historical study of the pre-modern Mediterranean in Haifa and Israel, and aiming to correspond with the vibrant international networks of Mediterranean research. We are looking for candidates who demonstrate academic excellence in their respective fields of expertise, together with an extensive background in Mediterranean studies. We encourage applications from candidates working in all related fields.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. by the beginning of the fellowship tenure period, and no longer than five years. We expect the successful candidate to devote his/her time to research, be present on the Haifa campus and take an active role in the academic life of HCMH: attend all seminars and lectures, present their research in different forums, meet informally with advanced students, etc. The fellowship offers an annual stipend of $25,000, for one year. Second year funding will depend on significant academic progress, to be reviewed in April 2023, and on institutional budgetary approval. It is advisable but not obligatory to obtain the sponsorship of a faculty member in the University of Haifa, with whom the candidate wishes to collaborate. HCMH may choose to nominate some candidates for institutional funding available in the University of Haifa.

If interested and the opportunity arises, fellows may be allowed to teach at the University of Haifa (up to 2 weekly hours), as long as their research work is not impeded. Teaching is compensated separately by the relevant departments and is taxable.

Please submit a dossier including:

  • Statement of research plans (3 pages, and 1-page bibliography)
  • Dissertation abstract (1 page)
  • Statement of support from Haifa faculty member (if available)
  • Writing sample (up to 8,000 words)
  • Curriculum vitae, including list of publications
  • Three references (emailed directly by referees)

Application materials in PDF should be emailed to Ms. Shiri Barnhart, HCMH administrator, at hcmh@univ.haifa.ac.il by February 15th 2022. Results may be expected during April 2022.
