About IFAO-PCMA Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Post-Doctoral Fellowship fellow will organize an international two-day Seminar/Workshop on a subject in relation to Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa (Egypt and/or Nubia). The application must outline the state of the art in the proposed subject and clearly present an added value to the studies of past societies. We encourage cross-disciplinary proposals offering a wider, comparative perspective of the area under study.

The conference will take place in Cairo in Autumn 2022. Following the conference, the Post-Doctoral Fellow will be in charge of the edition of the proceedings and will submit the manuscript for approval by the joint IFAO-PCMA editorial committee. During the entire course of the appointment, the Fellow will take part in the scientific activities of IFAO and PCMA and carry out his/her own research.

The Fellow is expected to stay in Cairo during the Fellowship and divide his/her time equally between the PCMA and IFAO. The position is a grant, not an employment position, according to Polish and French regulations. The stipend for the entire period of the Fellowship is 32 000 Euros in total, paid on a monthly basis.


The applicant must hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in a discipline related to the study of Ancient and Medieval Northeastern Africa and/or the Near East for a maximum of 7 years as of 15th November 2021.

  • Cover letter
  • Max. 5-page proposal in English outlining the aim and structure of the Seminar/Workshop program, including the names and paper topics of at least four key participants who have agreed to take part in the event.
