IT Officer at the British School at Athens – deadline extended
IT Officer (0.8 FTE) at the British School at Athens (1-year fixed-term appointment)
The British School at Athens (BSA), an institute for advanced research in the humanities and social sciences, seeks a part-time (0.8 FTE) IT Officer to develop and maintain its ICT infrastructure, coordinating with the BSA’s departments to maintain services and develop new projects. The appointee will work closely with the BSA’s Digital Asset Manager and a Digital Humanities/Data Analyst intern in a 3-person ICT team. The post is available on a one-year fixed-term contract.
The work of the IT Officer plays a central role in the operation of the BSA, interfacing with all departments and helping to organize administration, research and outreach. The BSA has a strong ICT focus and regards the development of its e-resources as a key part of its work.
You will be capable of working both independently and in creative teams, combining academic, administrative and technical tasks in a flexible manner, and seeking imaginative solutions to complex problems. The ideal candidate will have breadth and depth of experience across the ICT spectrum including infrastructure, networks, data management, application development and end user support. You will have a degree in Computer Science or equivalent work experience. Preference will be given to a candidate who combines ICT competency with experience in archaeology or in a field of Hellenic Studies as covered by the BSA’s mission statement. Familiarity with Axiell Software’s EMu database programme is desirable, but not essential. Ability to communicate effectively in both English and modern Greek is important.
The salary will be up to €28,000, plus health insurance. The position is available from 1 October 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter. A probationary period will apply. Residence in Athens (Greece) is a requirement.
Informal enquiries about the post may be addressed to the BSA Director, Professor John Bennet (email@example.com).
