I am pleased to announce that the job advert for the first Research Associate on the CREWS project has gone live today. See here on the Faculty of Classics website:

 

Faculty of Classics Jobs and Vacancies: Research Associate ‘Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems’ Project (CREWS)

 

The successful applicant will conduct research on a pre-determined aspect of the project, namely the context of writing in ancient Ugarit, specifically the social and cultural background against which the innovation of a new writing system took place. S/he will also conduct comparative studies, comparing the context of Ugarit with that of other examples of contemporary or near-contemporary written culture (for example in the Near East, Anatolia, Cyprus, the Aegean, Egypt); the choice of comparanda may depend in part on previous research experience. S/he will take up the post on 1st October 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter, and will work on the project for four years.
