Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) invite applications for two newly established SMB-
ANAMED Joint Fellowships in Provenance Research (each 75%). The fellowships will support two post-

and display art treasures and cultural artifacts dating from all human history, and educate the public about
their importance. The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s collections encompass the fields of European and non-
European art, archaeology, and ethnology from virtually all nations, cultures, and periods.
ANAMED, located in Beyoğlu, İstanbul is dedicated to fostering research on the archaeology, art, heritage,
and history of Anatolia through fellowships, exhibitions, symposia, publications, and library collections and
services. Selected post-doctoral fellows will be formally affiliated with ANAMED and will reside at ANAMED
in Istanbul.

Successful applicants will have a strong combination of the following qualifications:
PhD in a related field (i.e., archaeology, history, art history, heritage studies, museum studies, and/or
related social sciences and humanities field(s) granted after 15 September 2018)
Demonstrated expertise in Ottoman archival research on any of the above-mentioned fields
Demonstrated interpersonal, organizational, and collaborative skills for working within teams
Ability to work independently and to prioritize multiple, simultaneous projects
Advanced proficiency in reading Ottoman Turkish and translating primary source materials from
archives to both modern Turkish and English or German
Ability to communicate effectively (written and spoken) in English and Turkish with project-related
researchers as well as Koç University faculty, administration, staff, and students
Reading or more advanced proficiency in German Sütterlin-/Current handwriting (and additionally,
French) is preferred
Flexibility in work schedule, as needed
No military obligations for Turkish candidates
Readiness to travel to Berlin, likely twice

The successful applicant will be provided accommodation in Istanbul, a fellowship stipend commensurate
with experience, health benefits, a research account, and assorted other benefits.
The successful applicant will be ready to start the one-year fellowship on 25 September 2023. Fellowship
term extension thereafter to a maximum of two years total is contingent on a review of project progress
