The School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University has an opening for a post-doctoral fellowship in comparative urbanism. This position is with a transdisciplinary research project called "Urban Organization Through the Ages: Neighborhoods, Open Spaces, and Urban Life." This project has six faculty PIs, including three Mesoamerican archaeologists, a geographer, a sociologist, and a political scientist. We are gathering and analyzing data on urban life from ancient, historical, and modern studies. We are looking for a scholar with comparative interests and good resesarch skills to manage a team of student workers, and to become part of the project intellectually and professionally.
