Sy Gitin was my boss at Gezer. He went on to great things and I when on to other things. But we have remained in (very) occasional contact and I consider him a friend. Well, the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research now has a Distinguished Professorship named in his honor. Here’s how they describe it.
$45,000 award for 9 months or $22,500 for 4.5 months. Room and half-board at the Institute is $1,078 per month and the remainder is stipend. Open to internationally recognized senior scholars of all nationalities who have made significant contributions to their field of study.
Congratulations Sy and congratulations to whoever wins this Professorship.
