        Subject: Job opportunity: Digital Humanities Project Officer (Verona)

Digital Humanities Project Officer (ERC funded)
University of Verona, Department of Cultures and Civilisations

The Department of Cultures and Civilisations at Verona University
invites applications for a 12-month position (with possibility of
extension) as Digital Humanities Project Officer for the ERC project
RESP (101002763): The Roman Emperor Seen from the Provinces. Imaging
Roman Power in The Cities of the Empire from Augustus to the Tetrarchs
(31 BC – AD 297). RESP will investigate how Roman emperors were
represented in the visual culture of the provincial cities, on portrait
and in full-figure, by comparing and integrating the evidence from local
coinage and sculpture. The project is based at Verona University in
partnership with the Department of Classics at King’s College (London)
and the WMG at Warwick University; it will also involve collaborations
with major European museum institutions, in particular the British
Museum, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen and the Musei
Capitolini in Rome.

Reporting to the Principal Investigator, Dr Dario Calomino, the post
holder will be in charge of developing and managing digital applications
for the project. The candidate’s main tasks will be to design and
implement a database tailored for the RESP research team on Roman
provincial portraits and for the research on the provincial
representations of the emperor in full-figure, on which the PI’s work
will focus. The researcher will also be in charge of designing the RESP
project’s website and setting up the systems of data storage and data
sharing that will be used by all the team members. The postholder will
also act as the liaison officer with external partners (museums, state
antiquity offices, universities) with which the PI will need to engage
to acquire, use and publish digital data, and as the PI’s assistant in
communicating with the ERC and other stakeholders involved in the project.

Applicants may have a range of the following skills:
-       Good knowledge of IT tools and technologies used in Digital Humanities;
-       Proficiency and experience in database designing and management;
-       Good communication and interpersonal skills;
-       Ability to engage with project partners at an international level;
-       Desirable research criteria are knowledge and experience in using 3D
applications to the study of cultural heritage, and classical
archaeology in particular, which will play a prominent role in the RESP

The post is suitable for post-doctoral candidates, but BA/MA students
who wish to pursue an academic career in Digital Humanities are
encouraged to apply. The appointment starts on 1st September 2021; the
gross salary is € 30.000 per year (€ 24.425 after taxes).
The deadline for submitting applications is 7th July at 1pm (CEST);
shortlisted candidates will be interviewed remotely on 15th July 2021.
