Coin Curator, Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham

Part Time 60% FTE – Fixed Term Contract until 30th September 2016

We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Assistant Curator of Coins to join our busy curatorial team while the Curator of Coins is on study leave abroad (until autumn 2016).

The post is supported by a close working relationship with the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies at the University of Birmingham.

You will manage the Barber Institute’s prestigious collection of Byzantine and medieval coins, seals and weights, and help promote awareness of, and access to it. This will involve managing the coin study room and library, leading object-handling sessions and collection research, developing the coin collections database, preparing coin displays and dealing with coin collection-related enquiries.

A degree in Classical or Medieval History, Art History, Archaeology or Classical Studies with a major component relevant to Byzantine Studies, and a proven record of interest in Byzantine numismatics are both essential, as are an effective knowledge of Greek and Latin languages, and excellent English language, organisational, communication and interpersonal skills.
