Research Associate, Cult of Saints Project - Greek, University of Oxford

The Cult of Saints is a major five-year research project funded by a €2.3 million European Research Council Advanced Grant (2014-18), directed by Dr Bryan Ward-Perkins, and based at the University of Oxford with support from partners in Reading and Warsaw. The project will investigate the origins and development of the cult of Christian saints.

This is a four-and-a-half-year fixed-term post as a researcher on the ERC-funded project ‘The Cult of Saints’, working as part of a team of six post-doctoral researchers reporting to the Principal Investigator, Dr Bryan Ward-Perkins. The postholder will have responsibility for collecting and researching the full range of material in Greek, with the exception of the epigraphic evidence (which will be collected by another RA, starting further into the project and working over a two-year period). The postholder is also expected to produce an independent sole-authored monograph on an important aspect of the cult of saints, focused on the Greek evidence. The post is available from 1 April 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter.
