Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

The Royal Ontario Museum is Canada’s pre-eminent international museum and houses important collections in World Cultures and Natural History.

The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto invites applications for a Rebanks Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Classical Archaeology.  A two-year fellowship with a grant of $50,000 a year, the Rebanks Fellowship program provides Canadian citizens or Canadian landed immigrants who have obtained their doctorate in the last five years the opportunity to pursue their research with the support of one of Canada’s leading research institutions.  The Rebanks Research Fellowship is open to scholars working in most aspects of Greek and Roman archaeology.  We seek applicants with significant research potential whose work complements the strengths of the Royal Ontario Museum’s Greek and Roman collections.  Museum experience and familiarity with web page development are also preferred.  The Fellow would have some collection and exhibit responsibilities and would be expected to interact with the public through lectures, gallery activities and web based-media.  Publication opportunities may be available to Rebanks Fellows through the publishing arm of the Museum.

Applicants should submit a letter of application detailing their research project, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references to: Department Head, Department of World Cultures, Royal Ontario Museum, 100 Queen's Park, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 2C6, Canada.  Application materials must be received by November 18, 2011 for consideration.  Only Canadian citizens or Canadian landed immigrants who have received their Ph.D. after November 1, 2006 are eligible for the position.  We especially encourage applications from women and members of minority groups.
