*Part-time XML Research Database Developer*
Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies, 66 St Giles, 
Grade 7: £29,837 - £36,661 p.a. (pro rata)


The Faculty of Classics seeks to appoint a part-time XML Research 
Database Developer. This is fixed-term for 12 months. We are 
looking for a highly motivated individual with a strong interest 
in Digital Humanities and classical text-editing to build an XML 
Database backed website for publication, analysis, and editing of 
EpiDoc TEI P5 XML documents for the I.Sicily project (0.4 FTE) 
and for the Ptolemaic Egypt project (0.1 FTE).
*We are happy to consider applications from those who would wish 
to work remotely.*

The postholder will design and implement a native XML Database 
application for the online publication, analysis, and editing of 
EpiDoc XML based on open source components; create a testing 
mechanism for the technical infrastructure for resilient 
deployment (and redeployment from backup) of the website; develop 
and maintain the project's technical infrastructure including XML 
Database installation and basic Linux server systems 
administration; and work closely with the IT Consultant and 
project PI in strategically designing and developing the 
infrastructure to ensure both reliable behaviour and potential 
for future expansion of the project.

The successful candidate will have relevant experience of higher 
education research (preferably in Classics); demonstrable 
experience of native XML database development; significant 
experience with multiple web development languages (e.g. XSLT, 
XQuery, PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, Python, etc.); and experience in 
maintaining software deployed on Linux servers.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be 
required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your 
online application and supply details of two referees who must be 
asked to send their references directly to the email address 
below by the closing date.
