IS THE JOB RELATED TO STAFF POSITION WITHIN A RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE?Yes
The PhD will be located in the field of History of Ancient Religions, within the framework of the research project MAP, directed by Prof. Corinne Bonnet (Université Toulouse 2 Jean Jaurés), with the possibility of a co-director. The position is to be filled by 1 october 2019 for a period of 36 months, according to the legal framework of the doctoral contract, namely for what concerns the salary (http://www.enseignementsup-recherche.gouv.fr/cid76053/le-financement-doc...).
The project will deal with a significant corpus of inscriptions coming from the Greek colonies founded in the East, between Syria and the Indus, and providing evidence on the presence of Greek and non Greek gods. According to his/her specific expertise, the candidate will choose a relevant area within this large framework. The chronological focus will be the Hellenistic and Roman period. Greek inscriptions will be systematically gathered, studied and registered in the database of the MAP project, with a special attention paid to the onomastic sequences used for the gods. Bilingual inscriptions, with Aramaic, Phoenicia, or other "indigenous" idioms, will possibly be analyzed, in collaboration with the MAP team.
Different issues will be addressed, such as the relation between the onomastic sequences and the political, economic, military environment. The corpus will probably contribute to a better understanding of the process of translatability and interpretatio. A special attention will be paid to the agents involved in the inscriptions and to the networks of gods designed by the onomastic elements. The relationship between divine names and iconography may also be considered. The successful candidate will participate in the project'research activities, engage in joint research and fill the database with the MAP team.
Within the 15th May, we will select a short-list of candidates.
Interviews will be conducted in the first half of June 2019, with a final answer before the 15th June 2019.
Notice : The university Of Toulouse does not refund any costs incurred in the application process.
