You will be educated to doctoral level or equivalent in a subject relevant to the role, for example Archaeology or Art History, with focus on religious traditions, cultures and polities from the Mediterranean to South Asia or alternatively in a related subject that can inform the study of religious and political imagery c.200 to 800 CE. You will have experience or demonstrable knowledge of material culture and/or academic perspectives that can inform the study of appropriate material and/or visual culture.

Excellent teamwork and communication skills are essential for this role, as well as previous experience working on a research project as a Research Assistant.
