GORDION DATABASE AND WEB DEVELOPER

 

“The Gordion Database and Web Developer is a one-year term position with the possibility of renewal that reports to the Curator-in-Charge of the Mediterranean Section and is responsible for the design and implementation of the Gordion Project’s digital resources. These include the back-end database which uses open-source software and the public website housed at http://sites.museum.upenn.edu/gordion/. The Gordion Project in central Turkey has been active since the 1950s and has collected a substantial and growing archive of paper-based and digital information. A significant portion of this archive has been digitized and is available in a content management system. This material is currently used by researchers working to publish the excavation’s results. The project is also committed to sharing this data via its website. The Gordion Database and Web Developer will work with the Gordion Project Archivist to facilitate both internal use and public access. The Gordion Database and Web Developer will also be responsible for database development for ongoing field research in Gordion. Participation in fieldwork at Gordion is also desirable.”
