Cotsen Postdoc Hired at Johns Hopkins
The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology is pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Harrower (currently Cotsen Postdoctoral Fellow) has accepted a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
Founded in 1883, the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Johns Hopkins University was the first in the United States to offer a PhD. Dr. Harrower will continue field research in Oman, presently concentrating on irrigation and excavation and mapping Bronze Age tombs and Iron Age monuments linked to early agro-pastoralism and the lucrative frankincense trade to the Mediterranean. He will be building a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and satellite imagery mapping laboratory at Johns Hopkins and will be teaching graduate students and undergraduates as part of the new inter-departmental undergraduate archaeology major, for more information see:
