The Griffith Institute is seeking to appoint from late 2009 an ICT Officer to provide support for the Online Egyptological Bibliography (OEB), which will be moved from Amsterdam to a server in Oxford in late 2009 and will be further developed and migrated to a new software platform over the next year. This is a major database project that involves integrating material from diverse sources, including other databases that are to be incorporated into the OEB, as well as designing new input and search modules for use in a Unicode-compliant system. The successful candidate will have a professional knowledge of database systems, including Microsoft Access and MySQL with complex SQL statements and queries, as well as web-based systems, notably ASP, PHP, internet technologies such as (X)HTML and JavaScript, and general web design. She or he will also manage integrity, security, and online subscriptions to the OEB. This is a challenging position that will suit particularly a specialist in computing for the humanities.
