Part Time Graduate Opportunity at the Index of Medieval Art

The Index of Medieval Art invites applications for a two to three-month remote, part-time research opportunity to help incorporate key works on Mount Athos into the Index database. This position is part of a multi-year project focusing on Mount Athos related collections at Princeton.

The successful student should be enrolled in a PhD position and currently based in Greece and have relevant training in art history, preferably with a medievalist background. A reading knowledge of modern and Byzantine Greek is preferable. This opportunity offers a stipend of $2,500 and has been generously funded by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, with the support of the Dimitrios and Kalliopi Monoyios Modern Greek Studies Fund and Art & Archaeology Department at Princeton University.

The work position will require roughly 5-10 hours of remote work for a two/three-month period, beginning in spring 2024. The successful applicant will work with the Index research staff to catalog monumental art, icons, enamels, and manuscript on Mount Athos. The position would require the student to examine the Index legacy records, update the metadata, identify new color images, and incorporate them on the online database. They will be trained in Index norms in cataloging , describing the iconography of the works of art, transcribing inscriptions, and adding bibliographic citations. Staff guidance and scans of the relevant print material will be provided. The timeline for this work is somewhat flexible but must be completed by the end of the funded period, June 30, 2024.

To apply, please send a CV and letter of interest to marossi@princeton.edu by December 1, 2023.
