Project Curator: Naukratis Project
The British Museum is looking to recruit a Project Curator to research and publish Greek material, especially Archaic and Classical Greek and related pottery, from the site of Naukratis in the Nile Delta. As part of the Naukratis project team, you will be responsible for researching the archaeology and history of Naukratis and the significance of the site in relation to Greek – Egyptian interaction. You will also have responsibility for publishing relevant analyses as part of the project’s final publications. With a PhD or equivalent in Classical Archaeology you will possess knowledge of the material culture of Archaic and Classical Greece and have previous experience of working with archaeological material from excavations. Expertise in Greek, particularly East Greek and Attic, pottery of the Archaic and Classical periods is essential for this role. The ability to devise a pragmatic programme of work and identify priorities and to work without supervision as part of a wider team are key skills required for this post. The post is advertised for a fixed term of one year.
