Istanbul Research Institute (İAE) and Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) are pleased to announce a new joint fellowship to support one post-doctoral scholar conducting research on the archaeology, architecture, art history, heritage, or history of Istanbul. The fellow will benefit from residence in Istanbul and the facilities of both the İAE and ANAMED.

All candidates must be conversant in English and agree to take on no other obligation (e.g., part-time teaching) during the fellowship term. The successful applicant will hold the fellowship for the fall term of the 2023-2024 academic year in residence at ANAMED in Istanbul and must be able to carry out the proposed research with resources available in both institutions and thus in Turkey.

The fellowship offers benefits include a monthly stipend to cover expenses not already included in the fellowship, international travel costs to and from Turkey, accommodation at ANAMED, five meals per week or support for the same, health insurance, a modest research budget, a workspace, and full access to the research and library facilities, events, and scholarly communities within both sponsoring institutions.

Please note that all applications must be submitted via ANAMED’s application form.

Application deadline is December 18.
