A position is about to be advertized in Greek epigraphy at Oxford, with a salary that would probably suit a newly qualified postdoc. This project looks like it will join the many other excellent EpiDoc corpora produced by the Oxford Classics/CSAD team. If you’re thinking about this, you really should contact Alan Bowman as soon as possible. (See the note from Bowman below.)
Simon Hornblower, Charles Crowther and I are pleased to announce that we have been awarded funding by the AHRC for a 3-year project on inscriptions from Ptolemaic Egypt. This project will create a corpus of up-to-date editions of the Greek, bilingual and trilingual inscriptions on stone from Ptolemaic Egypt (323-30 BCE), based on material collected and annotated by the late Peter Fraser FBA (1918-2007). The editions will include introductory material, commentaries, translations and digital images and will be made available both in book form and an on-line version. Fraser’s manuscript will be revised and updated, inscriptions published since the mid-1970s will be added, along with editions with translations of the Egyptian sections of bilingual and trilingual texts.
We will be seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on the Greek epigraphy for 3 years from October 2013, or as soon as possible thereafter. We expect the maximum possible salary to be in the region of £30,000 (sterling) per annum, depending on experience and qualifications. A formal advertisement will be posted soon. In the meantime, suitably qualified researchers who might wish to indicate possible interest in the position are encouraged to contact Professor Alan Bowman offline by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
