The Max Planck-Harvard Research Center for the Archaeoscience of the Ancient Mediterranean (MHAAM), a collaboration between The Initiative for the Science of the Human Past at Harvard (SoHP) and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany (MPISHH) announces an opportunity for recent and graduating seniors and Master’s students to participate in a Symposium scheduled at Harvard University on Friday, November 2nd, 2018.
Students will have an opportunity to present cross-disciplinary research which utilizes modern scientific tools and knowledge to illuminate the history of humanity, and to network with other students and faculty members similarly engaged. An interest in the Ancient Mediterranean is desirable but not indispensable.
For students coming from outside the Boston/Cambridge area for the November 2nd Symposium, a limited number of awards of up to $500 to defray lodging and travel costs are available. Students interested in applying for the Symposium should arrange to send a letter of application, along with an abstract of research to be presented, a CV, an academic transcript, and a letter of recommendation, to be submitted by October 18th at the latest to email@example.com
MHAAM is also offering a new PhD Fellowship opportunity for the 2019-2020 academic year and beyond. This 5-year fully-funded PhD fellowship for study and research on the science of the human past is an opportunity for interdisciplinary study at Harvard and in Jena, Germany. An interest in the Ancient Mediterranean and in ancient DNA is useful but not required. PhD degrees will be awarded through Harvard University, notably in the following departments:
- The Archaeology Program within the Anthropology Department (Deadline: December 15, 2018)
- History (Deadline: December 15, 2018)
- Human Evolutionary Biology (Deadline: December 1, 2018)
- Organismic and Evolutionary Biology (Deadline: December 1, 2018)
- Additional Departments Forthcoming
Candidates for the Fellowship will apply for admission to one of these Harvard University PhD Programs to be considered eligible for this full funding opportunity through the Max Planck-Harvard collaboration. Applicants must specify their interest in the MHAAM Fellowship Program within the application, and must additionally send a copy of the application to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via mail to:
