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,
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.
