Assistant Director of the Oxford Roman Economy Project
Faculty of Classics, Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, 66 St Giles, Oxford
Grade 7: £29,541 – £32,267 p.a.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates of postdoctoral status for the post of Assistant Director of the Oxford Roman Economy Project (OXREP). This is a full-time, fixed-term post for 4 years with effect from as soon as possible after the 21 October 2013. While the original, AHRC-funded phase of OXREP focused on the period between 100 BC and AD 350, we have now expanded the scope to include the period up to the seventh century, when the expansion of Islam radically changed the geopolitical dynamics of the Mediterranean world. We are interested in the pulsation of growth and contraction across the imperial period, the vicissitudes of the third century and the period of seeming revival under the Tetrarchy and Constantine, the effects of the fall of the Western Roman Empire, and the reconquests and plague under Justinian. The project continues to be interested in quantification, but is interested also in exploring vital parts of ancient life which have not hitherto been much considered in economic terms (e.g. the economics of ancient religion and entertainment).
The postholder will assist the Project Directors with developing OXREP by preparing grant applications for further research on aspects of the Roman Economy, and undertaking their own original research on the Roman economy, organising meetings, conferences and events, and preparing material for publication. The postholder will work closely with the two project directors, Professors Bowman and Wilson, and with a Research Assistant, to be appointed, responsible for collection and organisation of documentary material and archaeological evidence. Applicants should have completed a doctorate in a relevant area of Roman Economic History or Archaeology by 31 August 2013. The successful candidate will be appointed to a Supernumerary Fellowship at Wolfson College.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 9 October 2013.
