Two fixed-term posts at the University of Edinburgh

1) Exhibition Curator

With generous support from the A. G. Leventis Foundation and in connection with the 12th A. G. Leventis Conference in Hellenic Studies in 2021, the School of History, Classics and Archaeology wishes to appoint a Postdoctoral (Curatorial) Fellow with research interests in Scottish Philhellenism of the early nineteenth century, Scottish-Greek connections, and/or the Late Enlightenment in Scotland. Additional expertise or interest in Greek or Eastern Mediterranean history of the early nineteenth century will constitute an advantage.

The appointee will play the leading role in organizing, and developing the narrative for, an exhibition in the University of Edinburgh that commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution and is provisionally entitled ‘Edina/Athena – 1821/2021:The Greek Revolution and Edinburgh as the “Modern Athens”. In addition to identifying suitable exhibits from collections within and without Edinburgh, the appointee’s main task will be to communicate the fascinating story these exhibits tell to an academic and lay audience via various media. The postholder will have access to curatorial assistance and academic advice from within and without the University. Experience in – or interest in, and the ability and willingness to learn very fast – exhibition organisation will be considered an asset.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from all sections of the community, regardless of age, gender, race and ethnicity, disability, nationality and citizenship status, religion, sexual orientation or transgender status.

The School is committed to Athena SWAN principles. All appointments will be made on merit.

This is a temporary part-time (17.5hrs per week) and is available for a fixed term period from August 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter until 31st December, 2021.
Salary is £33,797 – £40,322, per annum, pro rata.
