        Subject: British Museum Research Assistant post: Naukratis project, ResearchSpace and GRAVITATE

The British Museum is looking to appoint a Research Assistant in the Greece and Rome department to support the creation of an accessible web resource that will integrate existing digital resources from the Naukratis project into the GRAVITATE project (gravitate-project.eu/).

This role involves extensive data work, primarily creating integrated models of information using a semantic Conceptual Reference Model to represent a varied set of data sources related to the GRAVITATE case study collections. This will require a detailed understanding of the archaeological principles and objectives of the Naukratis project and knowledge representation and modelling. With supervision from the ResearchSpace team (www.researchspace.org http://www.researchspace.org ) some internal training will be provided.

Educated to degree level, or equivalent, the ideal candidate will have demonstrable experience of data modelling and analysis in the context of archaeological research. You will be knowledgeable about Semantic Web Technologies and their application in research.
