KUDAR-ANAMED Joint Fellowship in Maritime Archaeology

The Koç University Mustafa V. Koç Maritime Archaeology Research Center (KUDAR) and Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) joint fellowship will support one post-doctoral scholar specializing in Maritime Archaeology or a closely-related topic for the 2018 – 2019 nine-month academic year (September 17th to June 15th). The successful applicant is required to reside in Istanbul during the fellowship period, to devote his or her time to a proposed research project, and to deliver two lectures on their original research.  The fellowship provides one round-trip ticket to Istanbul, accommodation at ANAMED in Istanbul’s Beyoğlu neighborhood, five meals a week, and a monthly stipend. While in residence, the successful applicant will be able to take advantage of a limited research budget, the ANAMED seminar and study rooms, library resources within the Koç University system, and access to nearby research centers such as the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, the Institut Français d’Études Anatoliennes, and the Instituto Italiano di Cultura.  Applications from scholars of all nationalities are encouraged, but fellows must be proficient in English, the language of instruction at Koç University.

Established in honor of Mustafa V. Koç, the Koç University Maritime Archaeology Research Center (KUDAR) supports and promotes Turkish and international scholars conducting high-impact research on maritime archaeology, history, ethnography, heritage management, artifact conservation, and other practices concerned with the relationship between society and the sea.  The center prioritizes research in the Social Sciences, primarily Archaeology, but also Anthropology, Human Geography, and similar disciplines. The center may also encompass efforts that include the applied and natural sciences, such as Oceanography or Marine Biology, provided such research generates high-impact results that contribute to the center’s overall focus.
