Curator: Egyptian Written Culture
You will be responsible for undertaking research and documentation on the collection of inscribed material from ancient Egypt, and expected to develop research programmes and seek external funding to support these. A primary focus will be the significant collections of papyri and ostraca (hieratic, demotic), but the post holder will also have the opportunity to work across other inscribed material in the collection. The curator will also be expected to place Egyptian written culture within a broader context of writing across other cultures.
