The BIAA is seeking to appoint a full-time Postdoctoral Fellow from September 2023
The deadline for receipt of applications is 31 October 2022, 23:59 UK time. Members of the BIAA Research Committee will consider applications received before this date. Online interviews will take place by mid-November 2022.
The Fellow is expected to spend 50% of their time on the BIAA’s ongoing cultural heritage research programme in consultation with the BIAA Director, Dr Lutgarde Vandeput and the BIAA Cultural Heritage Assistant Director, Dr Işılay Gürsu. The Fellow will use the remaining time to work on their own cultural heritage-related research.
Fellows will be based at the Institute in Ankara and will be required to spend at least two-thirds of their Fellowship at the Institute. The remaining time can be spent outside Ankara for research purposes, following consultation with the BIAA Director. The Fellow is expected to take over some of the responsibilities of the current Cultural Heritage Assistant Director who will be on research leave to take up a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship.
Fellows will be awarded £20,000 stipend per annum, payable in monthly instalments as a non-taxable grant. They will receive 22 days of annual leave. All costs including travel (to and from Türkiye as well as any academic travel, such as to attend conferences), health insurance, visas and accommodation need to be covered by this annual amount. Accommodation will be available at the Institute in Ankara, as required, at a rate of £10 per night or £250 per month. It is important to note that, due to new regulations regarding residence permits in Türkiye, Fellows will be obliged to obtain health insurance from a Turkish company for the duration of their stay. The BIAA will assist with organising this.
To apply, send a copy of your CV, along with a letter of application and outline of your research plan (1500 words max). Both documents should be sent as pdf files. Candidates are reminded that the proposed research should be realistically undertaken within 12 months on a 50% basis, as noted above.
Details of two referees should also be emailed to email@example.com. Please note that your nominated referees must not be members of the BIAA Research Committee or BIAA staff members.
