MHAAM 2020 Young Investigator Symposium

YIS Poster

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 undergraduate juniors, seniors and current or recent Master’s students to participate in a virtual Young Investigator Symposium on Friday, October 30, 2020. 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.  Due to COVID-19, the Symposium will take place entirely online.  Fellowships for graduate study at Harvard University (with research conducted in Germany) may become available later.

Students interested in applying for the Symposium should arrange to send a letter of application, an abstract of research to be presented, a CV, an academic transcript, and, separately, a letter of recommendation, to be submitted by October 6, 2020 to
