Koç University Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations
RCAC Fellowships for the academic year 2013-2014
The Center aims to develop and facilitate research projects that are dedicated to the history, art, architecture and archaeology of civilizations in Turkey. The Center aims to take a leading role in investigating and preserving Turkey's cultural heritage by supporting the work of outstanding senior scholars and promising junior scholars and by bringing together persons working in a range of disciplines dealing with the cultural heritage of Turkey. Fellowships, which include accommodation, travel, and stipend, will be given to approximately 10 Ph.D candidates and 10 scholars with Ph.D to spend the 2013-2014 academic year in Istanbul at RCAC. There are very few fellowships available as Non-Residential and Visiting Senior categories. Successful candidates will be required to be resident in Istanbul during the 9-month academic year (September 15-June 15). Some senior fellowships may be granted on a semester basis (September 15-January 31 or February 1-June 15).
Located in the Beyoğlu district of Istanbul, the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations is near to the libraries of the French, German, Swedish, and Dutch Institutes and other scholarly facilities in Istanbul. RCAC fellows are expected to devote themselves full time to their research projects and must be proficient in English, which is the language of instruction at Koç University. Applications from scholars of all nationalities are encouraged.
