Temporary Research Assistant Post (6 months).

Applications are invited for immediate employment as a Research Assistant
to provide the basic programming and support in the development of the
structure of a teaching module, ArchGIS, in the TLTP Archaeology
Consortium programme. The module is designed to demonstrate in a
self-directed tutorial at the first-year undergraduate level the
application of Geographical Information Systems and associated spatial
analysis in Archaeology. Examples will be drawn int. al. from recent
research in Italy and France. The tutorial is expected to be useful for
both Archaeology and Classics courses.

The module will be constructed using Authorware software to bring together
text and images from a number sources. The programming and construction of
the interface to Consortium guidelines will be the sole responsibility of
the research assistant. Experience in the development of PC-based
courseware and an understanding of the principles of GIS and Archaeology
are required. Familiarity with Authorware authoring package would be a
distinct advantage.

The successful applicant will be appointed for a total of six months,
being employed for three months in Cambridge and three in Bristol, on
Research Assistant 1B scale (12,828 - 15186 pounds), depending on
qualifications and experience, and will be subject to the Universities'
regulations for short term employment.
