The University of Manchester welcomes applicants for the vacancy of Research Associate in Ancient Letter Collections to join a research team funded from a major AHRC award based within the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures.

This is a pivotal role whereby you will be part of a team that co-authors two major books on ancient letter collections in Greek and Latin with Professor Roy Gibson and Dr Andrew Morrison. You will make a central contribution to field-creating research on ancient letter collections, and the project in turn will make a major contribution to the career development of the post-holder, since it offers opportunities both to participate in the construction of a major critical review, and to use and display powers of broader interpretation throughout an accompanying interpretative monograph.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from BME applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.

Please note that we are unable to respond to enquiries, accept CV's or applications from Recruitment Agencies
