Harvard University Full Fellowships Program in USA 2017/18


Deadline: October 4, 2016
Location: Harvard University, USA

Full Fellowship !!


The Department of Archaeogenetics at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, and the Initiative for the Science of the Human Past at Harvard University are launching a collaborative program that, at Harvard, draws on the Departments of Anthropology (Archaeology Program), History, Human Evolutionary Biology, and Organismic and Evolutionary Biology within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School.

The new program is a long-term cross-disciplinary collaboration involving these various departments at MPI and Harvard’s FAS and HMS, as well as other interested scholars and scientists at Harvard University.

In the framework of its multi-disciplinary investigation of the Ancient Mediterranean, the Max Planck Harvard project announce up to three 5-year Full Fellowships (f/m) in Biological Archaeology / Archaeometry and Archaeogenetics to sponsor graduate study leading to a PhD in Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The first fellowship(s) will be available to students admitted by Harvard for the academic year 2017-2018.


These three new PhD fellowships are open for recent Bachelor or Master’s degree holders with an excellent record and research experience in two or more of the fields delineated above. The new program ordinarily includes two years of coursework at Harvard and fulfillment of the standard requirements for the PhD in the relevant Departments of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences of Harvard University, where candidates will acquire expertise in the topics and methods covered by the Max Planck Harvard project. After this period, doctoral students will ordinarily conduct substantial research for their PhD at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany.


Funding will be granted to doctoral candidates for the entire duration of their PhD. Satisfactory fulfillment of all research and other requirements will lead to a doctoral degree awarded by Harvard University.

How to Apply:

Given that coursework and the doctoral examination will be fulfilled at Harvard, applicants to this doctoral track necessarily need to possess all qualifications and documents required for admission by Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) within the deadlines stipulated by GSAS. These include, for example, the Harvard application form, transcript of records, proof of language proficiency (e.g. TOEFL), GPA, GRE, a writing sample, and all other relevant materials as specified by each individual department in FAS mentioned above.
