Digital Institute for Archaeology Visiting Fellowships

The Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) and the Department of Anthropology at the University of Arkansas are pleased to announce the Digital Institute for Archaeology. The program, supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is designed to provide junior scholars in archaeology with the training needed to integrate advanced geospatial technologies into their research and teaching endeavors. Participants will receive semester-long residential fellowships at the University of Arkansas during which time they will enroll in three specialized courses in geospatial technologies and pursue independent research projects with the assistance of CAST faculty, staff and facilities. Fellows will also benefit from colloquia focused on archaeological applications of geospatial technologies, regular meetings to discuss independent projects, and short practicum courses offered by CAST staff and visiting speakers. Following their residence at the University of Arkansas, fellows will be offered a position on one of CAST’s numerous archaeological field projects around the world.

The fellowship includes tuition, housing, and a $3000 stipend for the semester of residence. Scholars will also receive funding to support participation in CAST field projects.

Qualified applicants should be either advanced PhD students or have received a PhD in archaeology or a closely related field within the past five years. Please consult the program website for application information and program details.

Application deadlines: July 31 for Fall 2010, November 12 for Spring 2011.
