Jan Moje is working on local governors in first millennium BCE Egypt. His actual research for Topoi focuses on matters of sociocultural interactions between these local rulers, the residence and the locals. He is also analyzing the interdependencies between political-religious and social spheres. He is examining the sources of their significance regarding legitimacy and the efforts made by local rulers to obtain the acceptance of the royal rulers of Egypt.
Moje’s research interests also include multilingualism in Graeco-Roman Egypt, Hieroglyphic and Demotic palaeography and funerary culture.
