Részletek a kiírás szövegéből:

The Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies at the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, invites applications for a 3-year PhD position in Egyptology to be filled by 1 March 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is opened in the framework of the research project “The Economy and Infrastructure of Tomb Construction in the Egyptian New Kingdom" (...)

The project seeks to analyse large-scale construction projects as a way of modelling socio-economic behaviour, as well as to elucidate the ancient history of some of the most famous monuments of New Kingdom Egypt. By collecting, translating and contextualising administrative documents produced during the building of private and royal tombs, including unpublished hieratic papyri and ostraca, the project aims to link the written evidence with the better-known archaeology of the monuments themselves.

It is expected that the successful applicant will have sound philological skills (including a good command of Middle and Late Egyptian, as well as demonstrable training in the hieratic script) and preferably experience of working with hieratic documents. Archaeological experience is desirable as the position will entail some fieldwork at Thebes and Saqqara.

Application deadline: 6 January, 2015 at 23.59 (CET)
