The Haifa Center for Mediterranean History (HCMH) seeks applications for postdoctoral fellowships for the academic years 2021-23.

We are looking for candidates able to demonstrate proven 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.

Second year funding will depend on significant academic progress, to be reviewed in April 2022. 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.
