ANAMED Regular and Joint Fellowships 2020 – 2021

Koç University invites applications for PhD, Post-Doctoral, and Senior Fellowships at Koç University's Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED). A few Post-Doctoral or Senior applications for regular fellowships that qualify for collaborative fellowships involving Koç University faculty, centers, or facilities will be preferred. Additionally, several joint fellowships with specific application criteria are available as well.

Opportunities include

  • a monthly stipend calculated by Koç University each year to cover most local expenses
  • accommodation at ANAMED’s residential facility in the center of Beyoğlu-Istanbul
  • five meals per week
  • transportation to and from Turkey
  • a modest research budget
  • health insurance
  • residence permit
  • Museum Card
  • full access to the ANAMED Library and to lectures, symposia, and other activities at ANAMED and on the main Koç University campus

All ANAMED fellows are expected to devote themselves full time to their research projects, to be active members of Koç University’s academic community, and, for full-year fellowships, to give three lectures on their work during the course of the year. Applications from scholars of all nationalities are encouraged, yet fellows must be proficient in English, the language of instruction at Koç University.

Established in 2005, ANAMED’s mission is to promote and produce cutting-edge scholarship contributing to the growing body of critical knowledge on Anatolia and its civilizations. Applications focusing on the archaeology, art history, heritage, and history of Anatolia from the Neolithic through the Ottoman eras are welcome from scholars of these and allied disciplines, including those that focus on the management, conservation, and presentation of the past. Located in the Beyoğlu district of Istanbul, ANAMED is near many research institutions, archives, and other scholarly facilities and thus serves as a convenient and comfortable locus for intensive study.
