The British School's Stratigraphic Museum at Knossos seeks to appoint an individual to take a supporting role in the curation and documentation of its holdings.  The successful applicant will join an established project, completion of which will take a further two years.  The post is funded by a grant from the Institute for Aegean Prehistory and is for 12 months in the first instance, with a stipend totalling £4,600.

The Stratigraphic Museum at Knossos is used year-round by a variety of teams from the UK, Greece and elsewhere, as well as hosting courses for students and the visits of individual scholars.  It holds the material from over one hundred years of British excavations at the site, dating back to the time of Sir Arthur Evans.  This material covers all periods from the Neolithic through to late Antiquity, with particularly large collections coming from the Bronze Age palace and surrounding structures, the Neolithic Tell below the palace, and from the Hellenistic to Roman buildings of the city.  The British School facilities at Knossos also include a hostel and a research library.  They are situated on the outskirts of Heraklion, the 4th largest city of Greece.

The successful applicant will join a project that aims to fully document, curate and increase the accessibility of the Stratigraphic Museum collections.  S/he will assist in the curation and databasing of the collections in collaboration with our full-time staff member.  S/he will also assist with the induction and supervision of interns.  In consultation with the Curator and other staff of the British School s/he will be involved in the further development of the project and of the EMu database.

Applicants should hold a graduate degree in Museum Studies or Archaeology.  They should have experience of archaeological fieldwork and either the curating of archaeological materials or post-excavation processing of excavation material.  Experience with EMu or similar database systems is essential.  Experience of living overseas is desirable, as is an active research agenda for the study of the material culture of Crete in any period and some knowledge of Modern Greek. 

Closing date for receipt of applications: 31st March 2017. Skype interviews will be held on 19th April 2017
