Via Jonathan Prag:

Researcher (3 posts)

Faculty of Classics, Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, 66 St Giles, Oxford

Grade 7: £32,817- £40,322 p.a.

The Faculty of Classics invites applications for three Researchers on the ERC Advanced Grant (885040) “Crossreads” reporting to the Principal Investigator Professor Jonathan Prag. Two posts are for a 12 month duration and one post continues into the second year of a 5-year project for a duration of 24 months. Please indicate in your supporting letter which post(s) you would like to be considered for.

‘Crossreads: Text, materiality, and multiculturalism at the crossroads of the ancient Mediterranean’ is a 5-year ERC funded project. Developing and analysing a comprehensive corpus of all the written (epigraphic) documents from the island, the project will offer the first coherent account of the interactions and interplay of linguistic and textual material culture in ancient Sicily over a period of 1,500 years. The project builds upon the initial work of the I.Sicily project (http://sicily.classics.ox.ac.uk/inscriptions/ and https://isicily.org/) and exploits a variety of digital humanities tools and methods. The three posts advertised here are integral to the first work-package, which is intended to complete the development of the comprehensive open-access corpus of epigraphic texts in TEI-EpiDoc, which will in turn underpin the rest of the project.

The successful candidate will have a doctorate, or be close to completion, in a related field; specialist knowledge in the discipline of epigraphic studies and working knowledge of at least one of ancient Greek, Latin or Phoenician.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 3 August 2020.
