The British School at Athens seeks two short-term (8 weeks) full-time interns for its Curatorial Project based in the Stratigraphical Museum at Knossos. These positions are available from 10th October to 2nd December 2016.
The Curatorial Project entails the cleaning, photographing, and repackaging of the Stratigraphical Museum holdings, and the creation of catalogue records in the School’s Museums and Archives Online system (using KE Software’s EMu programme) under the supervision of the project manager, Hannah Gwyther. Interns will be required to prepare and enter catalogue data after training in the EMu system. Candidates should hold a degree in Museum Studies, Conservation, Archaeology or a related subject, and wish to gain practical experience in handling a wide range of materials and object-types dating from the Neolithic period to Late Antiquity.
The British School will provide School membership and travel costs of up to €250. Self-catering accommodation is available at a subsidised rate in the School’s research centre at Knossos.
Further information about the School and its facilities at Knossos is available at www.bsa.ac.uk. Informal enquiries about the Curatorial Project and these positions may be addressed to the Knossos Curator, Dr Caroline Thurston ([email protected]).
Applications should be sent as e-mail attachments to the School Administrator, Mrs Tania Gerousi ([email protected]) to be received by Monday 12th September 2016. Candidates must also ensure that their referees send letters of reference (via email) to Mrs Gerousi by the closing date.
Applications must include:
– A curriculum vitae, with contact details
– The names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of two referees.
We would expect to respond to the successful applicants within a week.
