The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago seeks to appoint a distinguished senior scholar of Ancient Iranian Studies to begin in the autumn quarter of 2018 or as soon thereafter as feasible. The exact specialization is open as long as the candidate focuses on the pre-Islamic cultures of Iran; the successful candidate may concentrate on the archaeology, languages, religion, art, or history of ancient Iran, or a combination of these. This is a tenured faculty position and will entail a joint appointment in the Oriental Institute and the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations.

Applicants are encouraged to submit materials as early as possible. Review of applications will begin December 1, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.
