As an interdisciplinary institute and as the home of an inherently interdisciplinary field, the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World aims "to foster an interdisciplinary community of interest in the archaeology of the ancient world, and in the discipline of archaeology more generally. Its mandate is to promote research, fieldwork, teaching, and public outreach, with the Institute’s associated faculty, students, and facilities serving as a hub for this activity."

In the spirit of this charge, we would like to strengthen and deepen our connections with departments and institutes across campus, and in order to involve colleagues with archaeological interests more closely and more substantially in the Institute and its activities, we have established a program of so-called "faculty fellows".

We plan to appoint up to four Joukowsky Institute Fellows each year, for which only Brown University tenure-track and tenured faculty can be invited. They are typically appointed for two-year terms, which can be renewed once, and are expected to play an active part in the intellectual and social life of the Institute. This may include involvement in graduate examinations, mentoring of our postdoctoral fellows (including teaching observations), and advising on and/or participation in graduate recruitment and the hiring of postdoctoral fellows. Fellows are expected to attend one core faculty meeting each semester, where they may vote on all business of the Institute, with the explicit exception of personnel matters. Fellows are encouraged, but not required, to attend monthly faculty/staff meetings. Each Fellow is entitled to apply annually for a maximum of $2,000 of fieldwork or museum-related research support.
