In 2017, to mark the 80 years of Polish-French cooperation in the field of archaeology, Institut français d’archéologie orientale (IFAO) and the Research Centre of the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archeology UW in Cairo offered a 15-month postdoctoral scholarship to be realized from 1 October 2017 to 31 December 2018 in Cairo.
The scholarship was granted to Dr. Mennet-Allah el-Dorry who specializes in archaeobotanical analyses and the question of diet, especially the production and use of wine in Egyptian monasteries.
In October 2018 recruitment for the next edition of the fellowship began. Deadline for applications is 15 November 2018. More information on the current edition is available here.
