MAPSS “Mongolian Archaeological Project: Surveying the Steppes” is a special research project led by the Department of Archaeology, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (MPI-SHH). Our institute in Jena is leading a five-year archaeological documentation programme that will begin the process of constructing a comprehensive database for Mongolian Archaeology. With support from the Mongolian Government and the National Museum of Mongolia, this is an exciting opportunity to bring together Mongolian Archaeological Data for the benefit of scholars and researchers in the future. The Principal Investigator is Professor Nicole Boivin, the Director of the Department of Archaeology, MPI-SHH Jena, and an international advisory board for the project will feature many of the world’s leading voices on Central Asian Archaeology.
We seek a Data Manager with a passion for cross-disciplinary, team-oriented research, and an ability to work efficiently and complete projects in a timely manner. They should be educated to PhD level - preferably in archaeological science, although other related disciplines may be acceptable. The Data Manager will coordinate data collection and compilation efforts among project collaborators, manage data access, data validation, and data storage. While a heritage management or academic archaeology background is preferred, we are looking for experience in platform-development and software deployment, configuring data using graph-based modelling and customizing a database.
