Tenure is limited to the three years for which AHRC funds are available.

The Fitzwilliam Museum, the principal museum of the University of
Cambridge is engaged in a radical re-display of its main Greek and
Roman gallery. Underpinning this re-display is a joint research
project with the Faculty of Classics, funded by the Arts and

investigation and display.

A Research Associate is required to join the Project team of Museum
curators, conservators and University academics. Throughout the three
years he or she will engage in research focused on the Fitzwilliam
collection, as well as assisting in the preparation and installation

programme and the wider dissemination of research results. In the
first year, the position will be largely based in the Museum; in
years two and three, it will be divided between the Museum and the
Faculty of Classics.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a
leading museum collection. The successful applicant will have a Phd
or be of post-doctoral standing in Classics or a relevant field of
Classical studies. He or she will also have a good understanding of
current research directions in Classical Art and Archaeology.
Experience and interest in museum work is highly desirable, as is a
high degree of IT literacy.
